Arutz Sheva spoke with Cecelia Margules, whose song Mira has won Best Original Song of 2020 at the
Los Angeles International Film Festival.

"The song tells the story of Mira, my mother's sister who was taken as a child from the Lodz ghetto together with her family and sent to her death in the gas chambers," Margules explains.

The song, written and composed by Margules, is a "virtual duet" featuring Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach and Dudu Fisher.

The video clip for "Mira" was directed by Daniel Finkelman.
