Liel Kolet


Liel Kolet was born on 11 July 1989 to Indian Jewish parents in the Kibbutz Kvutzat Kinneret where she also spent the rest of her childhood.

At age 11, Liel won a talent contest, and was later discovered by her soon-to-be manager, Irit Tenhengel. A year later she recorded her first album, Kineret Child, which has sold over 2,000 copies. It included songs such as "Prayer", a Liel version of an Ofra Haza song, "Eyfo Ata Achi" (Where Are You My Brother), a song for families whose sons have been taken in Israeli wars, and "Don't be a Hero", a duet with Sasi Buganim. A single of her first English song, "Find It In Me", has been added to the album.

When Liel was 14 she performed the song "Imagine" on Shimon Peres' 80th birthday, and invited President Bill Clinton to sing along.[2][3] The clip has been shown on TV shows all over the globe. Liel started to receive invitations to perform from around the world.

A few years later, at a 2006 aid concert for tsunami victims in Berlin, Liel performed "Imagine" with the Scorpions' singer Klaus Meine.[4] Meine was touched by Liel's voice, and invited her to perform with him. Together they recorded 5 songs, including a special version of "Send Me an Angel", a special version of David D'or's song, "Tishmor al HaOlam Yeled" ("Keep the World Child"), and a new song which Meine wrote for Liel, "Bigger Than Life". Together, they also performed one of the most well-known Israeli songs, written by one of the best-known poets and songwriters of Israel, Naomi Shemer "Jerusalem of Gold". Later Liel released her first international album, "Unison", the same name as Celine Dion's first English album. In 2006, she took part in the Eurovision Song Contest, representing Switzerland, with the band Six4One. Their song "If we all give a little" ended in 17th place.

Liel has performed with artists such as Madonna, Andrea Bocelli, Richard Gere, Bono, and others.

In late 2008 Kolt enlisted to the Israeli defence forces.[5]

Recently, Liel also achieved success in Mexico, and recorded an album in Spanish. She has been filmed for a documentary on her life. Liel recently appeared on "News Flash with Michael Latin" on December 19, 2009.[6]
