Echo Yochi

It's one loon with a YouTube channel, not all Chabad.

That said, even one is troubling. Not representative, but still troubling...

BDE - R' Ben Zion Shenker

I'm sad to report the passing of the influential chassidic composer/singer R' Ben Zion Shenker Z"L. R' Shenker composed many songs that are widely sung in the Jewish world, including melodies for Mizmor LeDavid and Yosis Alayich. He also carried the Modzits musical tradition, documenting, singing, and recording the melodies of the Modzitser rebbes. Yehei Zichro Baruch!
