Maccabeats's Hanukkah Song Becomes Online Hit

NEW YORK (CBS) The Maccabeats are using a song - and YouTube - to wish everyone a Happy Hanukkah.

The Jewish a cappella group from Yeshiva University unveiled a remake of Taio Cruz's song "Dynamite." Their version, to reflect the holiday, is called "Candlelight," and references Hanukkah traditions like making latkes and spinning dreidels.

The song has become an instant hit on the web - as of Friday afternoon, it had already been watched more than 870,000 times.
