Jewish reggae star Matisyahu brought Northridge, California to a virtual standstill yesterday (09MAR06) when 3,000 fans turned out for a live performance in a record store. The cult singer/songwriter expected "a small crowd" to attend his free Tower Records show, but when thousands arrived at the store he was forced to perform in the parking lot. Staying true to his fans, the quirky Hasidic reggae star - real name MATTHEW MILLER - ignored press interviews to chat to the faithful after the brief showcase.
