Adam Sandler Sings in Hebrew? (And Other Songs You've Probably Never Heard)

Image credit: 

Everyone knows Adam Sandler can hold his own as a musician. From Opera Man on SNL to The Wedding Singer , the comedian has serious vocal chops, isn't half bad on the guitar, and can pen a catchy tune to boot. Most of you probably know his hilarious "Chanukah Song" (and maybe even The Office parody of it: "The Diwali Song"), but I know you've never heard him sing in Hebrew, because the following excerpt is a _floss exclusive. That's right, we've got an advance copy of Sandler singing "Hine Ma Tov" (from Psalm 133: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in peace) along with 5 other great performances by well-known artists who got together to participate on a new album called The Jewish Songbook.

The brainchild of legendary music producer Brooks Arthur ("My Boyfriend's Back," "Hang On Sloopy," "Chapel of Love," "Brown-Eyed Girl"), the album brings together some of the biggest names in the biz for the first time ever. And the best part about it: most of the proceeds go to charity. So check out the clips below and if you like "˜em, you can pick up a copy over at Shout! Factory.

The album will be released tomorrow, but remember: you heard "˜em on mental_floss first... and be sure to check back tomorrow for a chance to win a free copy.
