a leading superstar in Jewish Entertainment, is continuing the legacy established by her father Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. His deep spirituality and love of all humanity filled every song he wrote and touched every person he encountered as he changed the face of Jewish music.
Like her father, Neshama's talent and charisma captivate and endear her to people of all ages and backgrounds as she performs and teaches in cities worldwide. With her incredible band and in collaboration with The Green Pastures Baptist Church Choir, She continues to both deeply move and entertain as she sings her father's incomparable melodies, and inspiring original compositions.
Neshama's seventh recording, Higher & Higher (Sojourn Records/Sony) an official Entrant in the 2011 Grammy Awards, showcases the rare intersection of faith and talent. Written by a rabbi, performed by his daughter and a Baptist choir, the songs preach in the least secular way, extolling life and its living to the fullest, rather than an exact path. They see their music as a salve for some of the suffering they see throughout the world.
Neshama's new project Soul Journey aims to bring hope, healing, "Soul Raising" and fund raising to various communities and charities through music.
