Acapella group The Maccabeats has released a new music video in honor of Hanukkah. The new song is a rendition of the song "Burn" by British singer Ellie Goulding, and portrays a Jewish teenager's stand against bullying through embracing his Jewish identity. 

The group is also teaming up once again with Jewish-American actress Mayim Bialik to support the Miracle Match Campaign, an organization dedicated to raising funds for processing bone marrow donations. 

An excerpt from the lyrics: 

We - we don't have to worry 'bout nothin'

'Cause we got the fire - and we burnin' 8 nights over somethin'

Then, they gonna' see us from outer space 

Light it up - you're burnin' bright for the human race 

[. . .] 

When the light's turning down, they don't know what they heard

Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world

We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire

Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire
