Nissim’s epic new music video brings light to the most unexpected place

With words that touch the soul and music so uplifting that it soars effortlessly skyward on gossamer wings, Nissim Black is back once again – this time with the optimistic “Fly Away,” that carries a message of hope and promise.

Fly Away is accompanied by a music video directed by renowned director and producer Daniel Finkelman who wrote the script in collaboration with producer Shlomi Cohen.

Filmed in South Africa, Fly Away is the message of a young teen who is part of a community of converts to Judaism living in the slums of Johannesburg, where basic necessities like running water and electricity are nothing more than a dream, while violence and fear are part of the daily diet. Against all odds, the light of Judaism burns brightly within his soul, giving him the confidence to believe that, like Nissim, he too will one day able to emerge from a cocoon of darkness into a world illuminated by the beauty of a life filled with Torah.

Having grown up surrounded by wrinkling adversity, Nissim’s lyrics and music come straight from the heart, inspiring listeners to rise above their circumstances, follow their dreams and dare to do the impossible. Nissim has already made a huge mark in the Jewish music world in two previous music videos, collaborating with Israeli superstar Gad Elbaz and director Daniel Finkelman of Sparks Next in Hashem Melech 2.0 and L’chaim, both of which went viral on YouTube.

“Nissim has become a role model for so many, achieving so much against all odds,” said Finkelman. “Having experienced a similar journey, his message here is, “Don’t feel like you are stuck in life. Let go, break your boundaries and fly away because the possibilities are endless.”

Fly Away is being released in conjunction with Nissim’s highly anticipated album, Lemala. An original Nissim composition with arrangements by Yosef Brown and Yisrael Laub. Fly Away is directed by Daniel Finkelman with executive producers Adam Margules, Shlomi Cohen of HOSHEN Productions and EOM Travel , specializing in discounted premium travel.

Lyrics:

I want to fly / fly away
far far away/ from this place/
where nobody can bring me down/
where nobody can bring me down/

We are the light we shine on/
Its a delight we cry on/
with joyful tears/ i know a place away from here/
cheers/ I wanna go/ I wanna know whats my purpose tachlis/
I wanna glow/ I wanna show my inner greatness not fear/
nobody knows my name but/ I willing to make a change thus/
here’s my heart of anger/ replace and rearrange it/
See I need freedom from me/ to be all I can be/
He’ll look from heaven and see/ I chose to leave here to me/

I want to fly / fly away
far far away/ from this place/
where nobody can bring me down/
where nobody can bring me down/

This is the moment to make a blanket statement/
But I change my mind I can relate it/
I’m on the quest for greatness/ for now I’m learning patience/
the neshama inside is filled with many places/
the mikdash me’at/ lifting the curtains up/ breathing seeing/
the inner spot/ the inner chamber my heart is racing my only thought/
is to hold to this moment/ and then to let it be/
that place I was looking to be/ was here inside of me/

I want to fly / fly away
far far away/ from this place/
where nobody can bring me down/
where nobody can bring me down/
