LENA SEIKALY

The Washington Post calls jazz vocalist Lena Seikaly one of the "brightest voices in jazz." This rising star was one of the semifinalists in the Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Vocals Competition. Alongside the Hebrew and English, Lena joins Psalm Full of Soul in Arabic on two psalms that yearn for peace in Jerusalem: "Jerusalem, Wake to Peace" (Psalm 122) and "Rebuilding Jerusalem - Healing the Broken Heart" (Psalm 147).

Video clip will be available upon full album release
