IMRI, 25, born and raised near Tel Aviv, won this year’s Rising Star singing competition TV show, and the ticket to represent Israel in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. The young singer is already a veteran of the Eurovision stage, as a two-time backing vocalist, for both the “golden boy“, Nadav Guedj, in 2015 in Vienna, and the man “made of stars“, Hovi Star, in Stockholm in 2016.

Since a young age, IMRI has been singing professionally in many languages, including Spanish, English and Hebrew, and performed in dozens of concerts all around the world. In addition to singing, he also enjoys playing guitar and the piano, has studied acting and played in various Hebrew voice over roles in animated series.

SONG

Building on from the success of the mega-hit Malkat Ha’Shoshanim (Queen of the Roses), the official song of Israel’s 2015 Gay Pride Parade that brought them to public attention, Penn Hazut and Dolev Ram have now established themselves at the forefront of the Israeli music scene.

Working from their Tel Aviv studio, where they compose, write and produce, Penn and Dolev have created major hits which were performed by some of Israel’s top artists that became part of the soundtrack of life in Israel today. They also produce commercials and music for the children’s channel.

The playlist of the songs they have created together, over the last few years, has accumulated more than 130 million hits on YouTube. Other popular singers with whom they have worked include Eyal Golan (Bati Elaich), Eden Ben Zaken (Queen of Roses), Sarit Hadad (Lama Li), Moshe Peretz, Dudu Aharon (Mazal Moznaim), Noa Kirel (Yesh Bi Ahava) and Lior Narkis.

LYRICS

‘The secret of my life
Is never givin’ up
Now I’m close to you
Walking through the stars
Brings me to the start
When I won with you

I was waiting way too much
For something good to come
And I’m a bit fragile
Was waiting way too much
It’s like an hourglass
And you like trouble

Breaking me to pieces
I wanted you to know that
Every piece broke from you
Breaking me to pieces
‘Coz every time
You come around
I feel alive
Now I’m trying
I’m trying
I feel alive!
I feel alive!

The years I’ve been alone
Far away from home
Reminded me of you
My job is almost done
Baby I can now
Escape away with you

I was waiting way too much
For something good to come
And I’m a bit fragile
Was waiting way too much
It’s like an hourglass
And you like trouble

Breaking me to pieces
I wanted you to know that
Every piece broke from you
Breaking me to pieces
‘Coz every time
You come around
I feel alive
Now I’m trying
I’m trying
I feel alive!

So alive

Alive, alive, alive

Breaking me to pieces
I wanted you to know that
Every piece broke from you
Breaking me to pieces
‘Coz every time
You come around
I feel alive’
