      New York Boys Choir (NYBC), one of the freshest sounds on the Jewish music scene, under the guidance of renowned producer Yitzy Bald, joined forces with Kids of Courage, the famed volunteer organization that turns the dreams of children with serious medical conditions into reality by providing them with medically supervised trips, weekends and other events.

      The song, Kids of Courage, is an all new composition written by Yitzy Bald for this project and depicts the solidarity between the boys of NYBC with the amazing youngsters that are the Kids of Courage. A Sparks Next production directed by Danny Finkelman and sponsored by Shaul Greenwald of Riverside Abstract, this inspiring video, shot in numerous landmark Manhattan locations including Times Square, Rockefeller Plaza, Central Park and the Empire State Building, includes NYBC, with its star soloist, Jewish Star winner Dovid Moskovits, and Shlomo Skolnik, who are joined by several of the Kids of Courage. It features choreography by the Zvika Bornstein of the Hamsa Boys.

      "There are no words that could possibly express the importance of what this organization does," said Yitzy Bald. "New York Boys Choir is thrilled to play even a small part in helping Kids of Courage, by letting the world know the amazing things this organization does for these kids, giving them hope and helping them recapture the essence of what it means to be a kid. We hope that our fans will join us and do whatever they can to help Kids of Courage in their all important work."
