New music: Birgitta Veksler – Ana Elech

New Messianic music from Jerusalem to help you enter shabbat: Birgitta Veksler - Ana Elech (Where Will I Go) Birgitta has musical chops! She was a lead singer in an IDF army music band, and she finished in the top 10 in Kochav Nolad, the Israeli version of American Idol. Ana Elech (Where Will I Go) is a collection of ten songs written by Birgitta, inspired by psalms and performed in their original language - Hebrew. The songs reflect the longing for a savior, the Messiah, that is embedded in the heart of the Jewish people. Birgitta hopes that her music will impart a yearning for a more intimate relationship with God. Thanks to our friend Marty Blume for getting Birgitta's music on the station. If you fine Messianic music fans would be so kind, please support Birgitta Veksler by purchasing her music . Enjoy! And an early shabbat shalom to you all.
