Matisyahu is the Hebrew and stage name of Matthew Paul Miller, an American Jewish Reggae musician. His music an inspring blend of religion, reggae and rap. So how's that for a change! He also revived the hit song from the Police entitled "message in th bottle". 'According to Matisyahu, while he was given a Hebrew name, his parents soon forgot the name and began calling him 'Matisyahu' as the Hebraic version of the English name Matthew. They soon discovered that his actual Hebrew name was Feivish Hershel. However, he was advised by his Rabbis to continue using the Hebrew name with which he had grown up'.
