Different Jews respond to different musical styles. The Maccabeats have their detractors, but I can't imagine how many Jews are getting a more positive take on Judaism because of them. My favorite Maccabeats song is "The Latke Recipe," but this Hamilton take is wonderful and so are their other pieces. And the guys themselves are mentschen (I met a couple of them once). May their Kiddush Hashem continue for a long time.

Perhaps not all that original, but there's definitely something there.

If the Maccabeats would transfer all that talent & energy to something similar--but something original--it would be sensational.
