No youtube videos of him singing any opera. Not really very  impressive with the yiddish.

I was at a jewish wedding in NJ last week and the band was amazing.  The best wedding band I'd ever heard.  The dreadlocked soul singer they hired also totally nailed the chair dance song.

Lesson here:  Know your market.

He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his partner of five years, Rabbi Michael Rothbaum.

So is he from Africa or black?  I forget how we are using "African-American" these days.

African Americans (also referred to as Black Americans or less commonly Afro-Americans, and formerly as American Negroes) are citizens or residents of the United States who have total or partial ancestry from any of the native populations of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Glad I could help.

It's been done - SCTV did a parody of The Jazz Singer with Al Jarreau. "But Dad, I don't want to be a jazz singer, I want to be a Cantor!" Eugene Levy Played Sid Dithers as the father.  Good times...
