|The story goes:
"I was 16, I looked like a hippie, I wasn't into Judaism. I was into music, reggae, Bob Marley, girls. My parents wanted me to travel. They signed me up for this three-month program and paid for it, and that's how I got to the Alexander Muss High School in Hod Hasharon."
So Matt Miller became Matisyahu Miller, the world's first and most successful ultra-Orthodox Jew reggae singer.
"Me no want no sinsemilla.
That would only bring me down
Burn away my brain no way my brain is to compound
Elevated my soul you're a flying my sound
Like the sun of a sun ray burning up through a cloud
Torah food for my brain let it rain till I drown
Let the blessings come down."
