Flashback: Orrin Hatch Sings Hanukkah Song

80-year-old Mormon senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), wrote and performed his own song for Hanukkah, titled Eight Days of Hanukkah.

Granted, this video showing the making of the song is 5 years old, but is nonetheless pretty impressive.

Here’s the video …

Via the New York Times:

Senator Orrin G. Hatch, a solemn-faced Republican with a soft spot for Jews and a love of Barbra Streisand, has penned a catchy holiday tune, “Eight Days of Hanukkah.”

The video was posted Tuesday night on Tablet, an online magazine of Jewish lifestyle and culture, just in time for Hanukkah.

Known around the Senate as a prolific writer of Christian hymns and patriotic melodies, Mr. Hatch, 75, said this was his first venture into Jewish music. It will not be his last.

“Anything I can do for the Jewish people, I will do,” Mr. Hatch said …

Hatch is actually a fairly prolific songwriter and musician.
