Matisyahu Performs ‘One Day’ With Boy Battling Cancer (VIDEO)

on February 20, 2012

When Luke Weber joined Matisyahu on stage to sing “One Day” — a song that calls for hope — he brought the lyrics to life.

Luke is fighting cancer and for a chance at childhood. Chai Lifeline, an organization that offers programs and financial support to children battling life-threatening diseases, helped Luke in his fight when it made one of his biggest dreams come true.

The organization arranged for Luke to join Matisyahu on stage at the Tarrytown Music Hall in New York on Thursday to sing one of the star’s biggest hits, “One Day.”

“Sometimes in my tears I drown/but I never let it get me down,” Luke sang to a cheering audience. “So when negativity surrounds/I know some day it’ll all turn around.”

Luke’s parents credit Chai Lifeline with giving their son a chance to feel like a regular kid.

“They continue to amaze me,” Luke’s mom, Eliza, told Jewishmom.com. “It is because of them that Luke is not a victim of cancer. He is the happiest, most cup-half-full kid we know.”

sometimes I lay
under the moon
and thank God I’m breathing
then I pray
don’t take me soon
cause I am here for a reason
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around
because
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
there’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day x6
it’s not about
win or lose cause
we all lose
when they feed on the souls of the innocent
blood drenched pavement
keep on moving though the waters stay raging
in this maze you can lose your way (your way)
it might drive you crazy but don’t let it faze you no way (no way)
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around
because
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
there’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day x6
one day this all will change
treat people the same
stop with the violence
down with the hate
one day we’ll all be free
and proud to be
under the same sun
singing songs of freedom like
one day x4
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
there’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day x6
ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
