Here’s a video of Matisyahu’s adorable young son Shalom singing his father’s song “Live Like a Warrior,” which Matis the elder dutifully posted on YouTube. The boy, who appears to be growing peyes, smiles sweetly at the camera and says the song he’s singing is “by my daddy.”

We’ll start brainstorming nicknames for his tween fan base. See you in 2023…
