Whether or not you have followed the "Jewish Star" Competition. We want to wish a Mazel Tov to Hillel Kapnick on becoming a Semi-Finalist in the competition. The judges seemed to have liked his song and got a good kick out of his video. Unfortunately Hillel did not make it to the next round but we aren't worried. Hillel is already working on a number of music related projects and we are sure that he will be in the Jewish Music News very soon. Below is the video announcing the semi-finalists for the contest.
The portion of the video where the judges discuss Hillel's video is from 21:35-23:20
