I trenta cantanti ebrei di maggior successo di sempre nella Billboard

Cantanti-ebrei-piùfamosi

Non solo Natale in questo mese ma anche l'Hanukkah, la festa ebraica delle luci, iniziato lo scorso 8 dicembre 2012. Si festeggia per onorare l'altare nel Tempio di Gerusalemme dopo la libertà conquistata. Per questo motivo, il sito Billboard ha stilato una classifica dei trenta cantanti ebrei che hanno ottenuto- nel corso della storia - il maggior successo nella Billboard Hot 100.

Trovate l'elenco dopo il salto, qui una breve e curiosa anteprima. Al trentesimo posto David Guetta grazie soprattutto al pezzo "Turn me on" (quarto posto nella chart, il gradino più alto della classifica Billboard) e Without You (quarta posizione il 26 novembre 2011). Al numero 29 Lenny Kravitz -padre ebreo e madre cristiana- (con "It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over", alla 2 il 24 agosto 1991) e alla 28 i Kiss ("Beth" alla 7 il 4 dicembre 1976, "Forever" alla 8 il 21 aprile 1990)

Saliamo un po' nella classifica e troviamo Bob Dylan alla 25 ("Like a Rolling Stone" alla 2 il 4 settembre 1965, "Rainy Day Women #12 & #35" alla 2 il 21 maggio 1966). Drake alla 20 ("What's My Name" con Rihanna, 20 novembre 2010). Nella top ten Michael Bolton alla 9 ("How Am I Supposed To Live Without You", No. per tre settimane, il 20 gennaio 1999, "When A Man Loves A Woman" No. 1, 23 Novembre 1991).
