Lauren Rose – Hava Nagila (Baby Lets Dance)
When pretty pop singer Lauren Rose recorded a song as a Hanukkah present for her Grandfather she had no idea that bookmakers would soon be offering odds on her beating X Factor to the Christmas number 1 spot. William Hill are currently quoting 66/1 for the petite singer to take the Christmas top spot with her recording of Hava Nagila – arguably the most recognisable Jewish folk song.
“I found out that the lyrics for the song were written 100 years ago so thought I would record an up to date version with English words as a Hanukkah present for my Grandfather. I was really pleased with it and when my record company heard it they went mad about it and said they wanted to release it as a single.” explained Lauren
When asked how it feels to be in the running for the Christmas number 1 and to be up against the might of X Factor Bromley-based Lauren said “I can’t believe it. I only recorded the song for Grandfather so it is fantastic that everyone is talking about it. I’ve grown up with my extended family celebrating both Hanukkah and Christmas so if a Jewish song could be top of the Christmas charts it would be a great way of bringing everyone together!!”
I gave the song a listen and have to admit that it is a nice song. Okay, finally an oldie and classic song. This song will never leave the airwaves so bookmark this single. Never forget..Click on the 'play'-button and enjoy!
I give it.
