Eden Alene’s roots stretch from her birthplace, Jerusalem, to her mother’s home country, Ethiopia.
Already a talented ballerina, Eden started vocal lessons at the age of 11 and it wasn’t too long before she decided to switch the pointe shoes for a microphone and a career in singing.
Eden became obsessed with pop and soul legends such as Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson and Chris Brown, but her musical inspirations come from a wide range of sources including Arabian folk music, gospel and opera. As a teenager, she enthusiastically participated in local choirs before becoming a lead vocalist in the Israel Defence Forces band.
After completing her military service, Eden moved to Tel Aviv and took part in two of Israel’s biggest talent shows: X Factor Israel and The Rising Star. She won both, making her the only person to have done so in her country.
As well as preparing for the Eurovision Song Contest, Eden is focused on her debut album, which we can expect to hear more about very soon.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the contest’s organisers (NPO, NOS and AVROTROS) announced last january a final decision regarding the scenario that will ensure the health and safety of all people that will be involved in the Eurovision Song Contest next May in Rotterdam. From all the initial four scenarios they considered at the beginning, the organisers have decided to implement ‘Scenario B’.
The health safety and protocols that will be followed match with the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment guidelines for similar large-scale events such as sports competitions.
