Mister G (Ben Gundersheimer) is a Latin GRAMMY Award-winning artist, author, activist and educator. Hailed as “a bilingual rock star” by the Washington Post, he was originally dubbed “Mister G” by his young students while pursuing a Master of Education degree. His dynamic, interactive bilingual performances aim to dissolve borders and foster cross-cultural connections.
PJ Library has commissioned Mister G to create two albums of original, Jewish-themed family music. The Mitzvah Bus (Parents’ Choice Gold Award-winner) and Seeds of Shalom have been sent to tens of thousands of families throughout the world, making Mister G one of the most distributed Jewish artists of all time.
Also an author, Ben has published two picture books with Penguin Random House based on his original, bilingual songs. “Señorita Mariposa” chronicles the extraordinary migration of the monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico, while “Lilah Tov Good Night” is a lyrical lullaby which celebrates the beauty of our world and the spirit of resilience in a refugee family.
