Israel this year chose Eden Alene as its 2020 representative. Eden was born on 7 May 2000 in Jerusalem, Israel, to Ethiopian-Jewish parents.
When she was 17 years old she competed in the Israeli version of The X-Factor. A few months later she won the show. In late 2018 she released her first single and in 2019 her second. In 2019 she took part in the Israeli version of Rising Star, which is used as a national selection for the country. On February 4, Eden won the show and therefore became the next Israeli representative to the contest.
Her entry “Feker Libi” was composed by Doron Medalie and Idan Raichel. Doron is known to the contest having composed several entries for Israel, including Netta’s Toy!
Israel was going to compete in the second half of the first semifinal.
KAN – the Israeli public broadcaster – announced that Eden will represent the country to the 2021 edition of the contest.
