JNS.org – Israeli singer Amir Haddad, who competed in the fourth season of the Israeli singing competition “A Star is Born” 10 years ago, will represent France at this year’s Eurovision singing contest this May in Stockholm, Sweden.

The 32-year-old Haddad was born in France but made aliyah to Israel with his family at the age of 8. Haddad’s family originally came to France from Tunisia and Morocco. In 2014, he competed in France’s version of “The Voice,” where he finished third place. He has since become a popular singer in France.

Haddad will likely sing his newly released French song “J’ai Cherché” (“I Searched For”), which debuted in France last week, at the European singing competition. Since France is one of the founding members of the contest, Haddad will advance straight to the finale without competing in the semifinals.
