Joshua Nelson

Joshua Nelson is the creator and Prince of Kosher Gospel. Growing up in a Black Hebrew synagogue in the US, he was surrounded by gospel and, during his youth, became a widely celebrated gospel singer. Nelson studied in Israel for two years and, upon his return, began to apply his Jewish learning to music, beginning what has been called 'a revolution in Jewish music' by combining Jewish liturgical lyrics with one of America’s best-known indigenous musical forms. Nelson has performed around the world, for Presidents, congregations, major music festivals—and for Oprah, who named him the “next big thing". He has produced an album, 'Mi Chamocha', sung with stars from Aretha Franklin to the Klezmatics, and was the subject of the acclaimed documentary film, Keep on Walking. Nelson also serves as artist-in-residence at Jewish congregations across the US, including at his home synagogue of Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel, a Reform congregation in New Jersey.
