Israel this year chose Eden Alene as its 2021 representative. Eden was born on May 7, 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 2020, 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”.
After the contest’s cancellation, Israel chose to sent her in 2021. Following a national final, “Set Me Free” was selected. However, due to negative reviews by the public, the song was revamped.
The entry is composed by Noam Zaltin, Ido Netzer, Amit Mordechai and Ron Carmi.
Israel is going to compete 12th in the first semifinal.
