Ynetnews reports: Israeli singer Amir Haddad, who participated in the fourth season of Israeli singing competition “A Star is Born” a decade ago, has been chosen to represent France at the Eurovision song contest, which will be held in Stockholm this coming May.
Haddad, 32, is a Paris-born dentist who immigrated with his family to Israel when he was eight years old.
Two years ago, he competed in France’s version of “The Voice,” coming in third place. Since then, he has become a popular singer in France and a year ago he released his first single under the moniker “Amir.”
Haddad will attempt to reclaim France’s lost musical fame at the European singing competition, most likely with the upbeat song “J’ai Cherché” (“I Searched For”), which was debuted on French TV on Thursday.
