Grammy Award-winning musician, Miri Ben-Ari, best known as “The Hip-Hop Violinist” was involved in a major automobile accident at approximately 3:15pm yesterday, Wednesday, May 23rd.
Miri’s S Class 550 Mercedes Benz was fully totaled when a UPS truck hit her from behind, causing her to hit her head on the dashboard and be thrown against her seatbelt, landing her in a local hospital. She was treated for minor injuries and later released. At this time, no further serious injuries have been reported. She is currently under doctor’s orders to remain at her home in New Jersey for 48 hours for rest and recuperation.
Most recently, Miri Ben-Ari released “A Symphony of Brotherhood,” featuring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech – the first instrumental single to chart in the Top Ten on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Single Sales and the first instrumental music video featured on MTV and VH1. Ben-Ari also recently released the song “Adon Olam Ad Matai” with Israeli artist Subliminal in conjunction with her Gedenk Organization, a campaign which raises Holocaust awareness with today’s youth.
