Anne-Marie David, Loreen and Carola in Israel
The gala musical tribute “Glorious” will be held during the “White Night” all-night events sponsored by the Tel-Aviv Port and the Atarim Corporation
For the first time in Israel, the three legendary and beloved Eurovision Song Contest winners from various decades will appear on a single stage in a special original production to be held at the Tel-Aviv Port! The spectacular, highly-invested show includes six dancers, an Israeli drag ensemble and more. A unique nostalgic and emotional evening for all Eurovision fans and all those who grew up with the contest.
Appearing in the tribute show:
Anne-Marie David – the first lady of the Eurovision, who is known for her special ties to Israel, won the Eurovision in Luxembourg in 1973 and also represented France in Israel during the 1979 Eurovision.
Loreen – the Swedish singer who took the Eurovision by storm with the song “Euphoria” that became a huge hit throughout Europe and is considered the most beloved song by Eurovision fans throughout the world – and also
Carola – Europe’s popular singer, who overtook Israel’s Orna Datz during the 1991 Eurovision to win first place.
The evening, produced by Maya Fogel and Haverim Productions, will be open to the general public free of charge, and the masters of ceremony will be two celebrities who are identified and associated with the global Eurovision community, singer Orna Datz and Alon Amir, the author of the book “Three Minutes of Eternity.”
Orna Datz represented Israel during the 1991 Eurovision Song Contest as a duet with Moshe Datz with the song “Kan”, which reached third place. During the gala performance, Orna Datz will perform the popular songs “A-Ba-Ni-Bi” and “Hallelujah” and will sing a duet with Carola in Hebrew.
During the performance, a certificate of appreciation will be awarded to Nurit Hirsh, an Israel Prize winner, who composed the first song to represent Israel during the Eurovision – “Ey Sham” (performed by Ilanit), as well as the first song to win the Eurovision – “A-Ba-Ni-Bi” (performed by Izhar Cohen).
Later in the evening, Michal Amdursky will be the DJ and will keep revelers dancing through the wee hours of the night.
According to Fafi Landau Barr, the Marketing and Events Manager of the Tel-Aviv Port: “This year, the Tel-Aviv Port is also joining the “White Night” all-night events. We are confident that the original, highly-invested event will attract traditional “White Night” revelers to the port, as well as all of the tourists arriving in Israel for this important event. Attendees are guaranteed a musical experience with stars who are members of the pantheon of the Eurovision Song Contest, as well as celebrity drag queens and a dance party until the wee hours of the night.”
Original production (produced by Maya Fogel and Haverim Productions) will be held on May 16 (on the eve of the Eurovision’s second semi-finals)
at 20:00 in the evening on the promenade deck at the Tel-Aviv Port. Free entry !
Following the performance, the semi finals will be screened on a huge screen for the enjoyment of revelers at the Port. When the broadcast is over (towards midnight), the audience will enjoy a dance party featuring hit Eurovision songs.
