Harel Skaat, an Israeli singer and songwriter, is your Israeli creation for the weekend. Skaat's voice was first heard in Kochav Nolad (a Star is Born), which is the Israeli American Idol. It was in 2004, and when he opened his mouth for the first time, in front of millions of viewers, we all knew that life would never be the same…
He eventually came in second place, but soon became number one in the Israeli music scene. His singles took over the playlists of every radio station in Israel. Songs like Ve'At ("And you"), Mashehu Mimeni ("A part of me"), and Im Hoo Yelech ("If he'll leave") became number one songs, as his album sales were skyrocketing.
Many Kochav Nolad alumni did not make it in the "real world", but Skaat did. What makes him so special, in my eyes, is his soothing, angels touched, voice. When I listen to him sing, I feel like I al floating in the air, and all the worries in the world are gone. Do you agree?
