Shortly after pop superstar Pharrell Williams told fans he was “excited” about his upcoming performance in Israel, Israeli model Bar Rafaeli extended a warm welcome to the Happy singer.

“So excited about Tel Aviv. It’s gonna be so much fun,” Williams said in a video message, which was re-posted on Facebook on Tuesday by Creative Community for Peace (CCFP), an entertainment industry advocacy organization. The singer and producer added, “See you at the show.”

On Wednesday, Rafaeli, who posed with Williams in 2008 for the fashion magazine Glamour, posted on Instagram a photo of her with the singer and captioned the shot, “Finally! @Pharrell is coming to my home country. Can’t wait to see you.”
