In a new video for Passover first published on Time.com, the all-male members of the Jewish a cappella group The Maccabeats sing “Dayenu,” a traditional seder song of thanks, in different musical styles — doo-wop, polka, funk, metal, “island,”dubstep, barbershop and even to the tune of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”

The short film shows the group members singing these covers to liven up the seder experience for two little kids, who act bored and are falling asleep at the table. Julian Horowitz, Director of the Maccabeats, says the point of this Passover-themed parody is to encourage youngsters and others around the seder table to “make the traditions their own,” as “engaging the younger generation is one of the major themes of the Passover seder.”

Passover lasts from the evening of April 3 to the evening of April 11.
