Artist Profile

Israel

Avraham De Carvalho

Originally from Brazil, Avraham De Carvalho moved to Israel four years ago. He decided to move to Israel after he discovered at the age of 17 that his family on both his mother and father's side descended from Jewish religion which inspired both his relocation and coversion to Judaism.

He first came to the attention of the Israeli public when he auditioned for the show "HaKokhav HaBa L'Eurovizion" where he attempted to represent Israel at the Eurovision Song Contest on home soil while the contest was held in Tel Aviv. He admitted that he often communicated on the show in English as he had not perfected his Hebrew. However throughout the competition he was welcomed by judges and audiences and by performing covers in each round, he finished in 4th place.

Avraham started his passion for music at the age of four and started studying music at the age of nine through learning to sing and also playing keyboard, piano, saxophone and violin.

Israel at the Eurovision Song Contest

Israel debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973, and were represented by Ilanit who finished in 4th place with the song “Ey Sham”. Their first victory came in 1978 with Izar Cohen and the Alphabeta. Israel won again the following year with Gali Atari & Milk and Honey. Israel’s third victory came in 1998 when Dana International performed “Diva” in Birmingham, beating Malta to victory in a tense voting sequence. Israel struggled in the contest during the early-2010s, failing to qualify for the final from 2011-2014. However since the HaKokhav HaBa selection process was introduced in 2015 Israel has seen its fortunes turned around. In 2018 Netta won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Toy”, the song has gone on to be the most viewed Eurovision entry of all time on YouTube.
