The Jewish Star Season 2 My Thoughts: Day 6

Hi this is Day 6 of my thoughts on The Jewish Star Season 2 Contestants. Everyday I am taking 10 of the contestant and posting there YouTube video and my thoughts on there performance. I took the time to highlight the guys I liked in bold.  I mentioned in some that I thought they were like any random cantor or any random wedding performance. To perform at a wedding or to be compared to a cantor is an honor.

Also I would like to thank all of you, my readers who have come back these past few days. I would especially like to thank those people who have commented. You do not know how much a comment means to a new blogger. Anyway I hope you enjoy.
PS. Please go back and relook at Day 3, its been updated.

Hillel Braun: Very nice video, I enjoyed watching. Sung completely in Hebrew, but has a very nice voice.

Daniel Goldstein: Had a very low voice, but a good one. Did not make a video.

Yechiel Schnitzler: Sounded a lot like any other cantor.

Chaim Davis: Sounded like a cantor, but I thought he actually had a better voice then some other cantors. I also would like to add, that if I was searching for a cantor I would pick this guy because he starts off very fast, but can still hit those high slow notes.

Yermi Hershberg: It was a recording of a live which is why I can’t really say if I like his voice or not because I couldn’t hear it that well.

Mordechai Levovitz : Took a clip of his performing at a wedding and submitted it. Lucky for him, it was good. Although I wouldn’t say it was luck, because he has a very nice voice.

Avromi Spitz: Very nice self composition in English, nice basement style band to. The video looked like it was either blurry or in a special effect, either way there were screeches, besides for that I thought it was pretty good.

Moishe Borenstein: Good job playing everything and self composing the song. I didn't understand most of it, but very good chorus. I liked it.

Ezzy Duchman: Wow really good self composition and very touching video! Great voice to! Enjoyed the English subtitles. There are a lot of versions of the video on Youtube, I wasn't sure which one to pick.

Moishe Wilschanski: Did a good job playing his guitar and singing. I liked most of it. At the end it seemed like he had some trouble reaching that high note.
