Ever since he was young, Ari Goldwag has been motivated to influence and inspire with his music and Torah. His broad talents include singing, composing, and producing some of the latest hits in contemporary Jewish music. These gifts are present in every album, video, and Torah lesson that Ari shares with his community and fans.
Ari first entered the Jewish music world at a young age and his singing career took off when he joined Miami Boys Choir, achieving fame for his dazzling solos. He starred in five albums and three videos before his departure from the group at age 14.
Lishuascha Kivinu, Ari's debut solo album, hit the shelves in 2003. In addition to composing 10 of the album's tracks, he was intimately involved with the album at every level from the mixing to the engineering, and production, as well. The album included the song "Kah Ribon" which has become a classic sung at thousands of Friday night tables. Throughout his career, Ari has released six solo albums, including his latest hit album “Lo Nafsik Lirkod” released this past spring, and has starred in and produced several unique music videos. His exceptionally popular video, “Am Echad,” has been viewed over eight million times on YouTube. The video promotes a strong and vibrant message of unity among various and diverse groups of the Jewish people.
Ari has also used his talents to write and produce songs for other artists. Some of the more well-known works include Benny Friedman’s huge hit "Yesh Tikvah," and "Ivri Anochi," and the production of the Sheves Achim and Sheves Chaverim albums. Ari not only inspires through his music but is also a prolific writer and lecturer on a variety of Torah subjects. He has recorded hundreds of classes, the most sought after being the “Parsha Podcast” on the weekly Torah portion, which is updated regularly.
