Yona and Nina have both spent their lives pursuing their musical dreams. When they met, they had not only met their love soulmate but they met their musical soulmate too. After meeting and falling in love, they knew they must pursue their musical dreams together.
That is when Yonina was born. They combined their names into a duo and they combined their lives too.
When music lives in your soul you can perform anywhere, even in your family car.
Yona and Nina are like any married couple with children. They are busy. Yet, they still want to share their music with the world. Therefore, they record their performances wherever and however they can. Their two children make frequent appearances in their videos, including their baby, daughter Ashira, in this video.
Ashira cannot take her eyes off her daddy throughout the entire song. What an adorable daddy’s girl!
Yonina are covering Jewish Reggae artist Matisyahu’s song, “One Day.”
“It is an anthem of hope with a big beat, the kind of song that makes you bob your head and open your heart at the same time,” Matisyahu explained to Spinner UK
Yonina’s a cappella version of Matisyahu’s song will still have you bobbing you head and opening your heart without the big beat. Yoni will beatbox at times to give the impression of the big beat and it works like a charm. Yoni’s beatboxing accompanied by Nina’s angelic voice is a powerful combination. Ashira is sure enjoying the performance that is for sure!
Yonina sing the beautiful and hopeful lyrics that include,
“All my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don’t wanna fight no more
They’ll be no more wars
And our children will play”
“One Day” is a hopeful song. Yonina’s cover is not just vocally beautiful. Their performance set so simply in their car with their baby on Nina’s lap adds so much beauty to the lyrics content.
Yonina and their baby have big and genuine smiles throughout the entire video. It is hard not to smile yourself while watching them perform. It is as if their pure joy in singing together is contagious through the screen. This evident joy makes the viewer really become hopeful in the words they are singing. Yonina were able to capture the emotion of happiness through their singing.
Yonina’s original music, including their debut album, is available on iTunes and Spotify.
Yonina’s performance has been viewed over 2.9 million times.
