Benny Friedman - Biography

Benny Friedman
Benny Friedman was born in the Twin Cities, MN to a Chabad family of 14.
From his earliest years music was always a part of Benny's life, whether it was joining in the Shabbat zemirot of his father, Rabbi Manis Friedman or singing along with the latest hits from his uncle, the internationally acclaimed Avraham Fried.
Benny's studies took him to Iowa, LA, Miami, Tucson, and Israel, and wherever he went his talent was quickly discovered. Still a teenager, he was doing all sorts of performances.
Benny has recently jumped to the big stage and has performed before countless audiences all over North America from California to Miami, Chicago to the Catskill Mountains, Minneapolis to Tucson, Seattle and Toronto. He's being sought after by Chabad Shluchim as near as Montreal and as far out as Holland.
Benny has performed with all the greats - MBD, Oif Simchas, Piamenta, Yehuda!, Shloime Dachs, Lipa Schmeltzer, Shlomo Simcha, Yeedle, 8th Day, and of course his dear uncle Avraham Fried. He is currently studying voice in LA, under Seth Riggs, the legendary vocal coach.
Benny 's new moving show entitled "Judaism: The Song and the Story" has become a huge hit all along the west coast. The second in this series, "The Songs and Stories of Shabbat" opened this February in California.
Benny does not have an album yet, but don't blink. Because you know how it works with shooting stars!
