Previously Ben-Ari played at the White House “at the request of Michelle Obama where, as part of the annual celebration of Women’s History Month, she was deemed a “remarkable” woman mentor.

She also spoke out about “Gedenk” (“Remember”), her non-profit aimed at bringing awareness about the Holocaust to the younger generation.

Ben-Ari told WE,

“I think that it’s my responsibility as an artist to utilize my talent to do things that are greater than me,” she noted. “Supporting great causes and spreading important messages are crucial when it comes to looking at the world as a global community.
