  • Miri Ben-Ari Readies Debut, Shoots Video, Prepares To Tour

    Miri Ben-Ari Readies Debut, Shoots Video, Prepares To Tour
    By Jay Casteel

    After garnering attention for her appearances on Kanye West's College Dropout and Twista's Kamikaze, Miri Ben-Ari is finally dropping her long-awaited debut album, Miri Ben-Ari: The Hip-Hop Violinist, after being pushed back numerous times.

    She is currently enjoying success with her single "Sunshine To The Rain" featuring Scarface and Anthony Hamilton. And with her debut album, she boasts featured guests such as Kanye West, John Legend, Akon, Lil' Wayne and Scarface to name a few.

    "The artists on my album were all very talented and unique, and most have never worked with a violinist, so we pushed each other creatively," said Miri.

    Her next single is "We Gonna Win" featuring D-Block's Styles P. The Paul Schneider-helmed video was recently shot in Los Angeles, and represents "a song of triumph," according to the violinist.

    "'We Gonna Win' is a song of triumph," said Miri of the song. "It represents my personal belief that with hard work, talent and dedication, everything is possible. It's a one of a kind marriage between rap and classical music, where the music doesn't accompany the vocalist, but rather stands on its own."

    "We Gonna Win" is a first-of-its-kind business venture between Universal Motown Records and footwear/apparel giant Reebok, marking the shoe company's first venture into the actual creation of a music video. The partnership will also highlight Israeli superstar, Ben-Ari, as the newest face of the brand’s global "I Am What I Am" advertising campaign, featuring print, online and retail components. Miri joins artists such as Allen Iverson, Jay-Z, Yao Ming, 50 Cent, Nelly, Donovan McNabb and Christina Ricci as faces of Reeboks campaign.

    "Partnering with Reebok is a natural fit for me because they truly value artists who are not afraid to be different and stand out from the crowd,” said Ben-Ari. "I am excited to work with Reebok on my new music video and thrilled to be part of their 'I Am What I Am' campaign."

    Miri Ben-Ari: The Hip-Hop Violinist is slated to drop September 20 on Universal Records.

    In addition to dropping her album, she will join Busta Rhymes on The Kool New Jazz Philosophy Tour. Confirmed dates are as follows, according to her publicist:
