Yeshiva University a cappella group, The Maccabeats, have gained legions of fans, and millions of YouTube views for their catchy a cappella parodies and covers of other folks’ songs. However, today is a very special day for the lads, as they unveil their first original song, “Shine”.

“'Shine’ is a song about Hanukkah and so much more, and we hope that the song and video inspire all of our fans to keep the flame of Hanukkah burning well beyond the Festival of Lights,” said The Maccabeats in a press release on Thursday.

In the song’s corresponding video, the group encourages viewers to “get swabbed” for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation. Partnering again with actress/author Mayim Bialik, The Maccabeats are attempting to draw awareness to their Miracle Match Campaign.

“This campaign raises much-needed funds to process tissue samples from potential donors. Miracle Match has saved lives, and could save so many more with your help,” The Maccabeats continued in the press release.

For more info on the campaign, visit www.makesomemiracles.com. To purchase “Shine”, go to www.itunes.apple.com/us/album/shine-single/id584892385?ls=1. Below is the corresponding video for the single.
