The Eurovision Song Contest 2003 winner, Sertab Erener from Turkey, landed yesterday in Tel Aviv, for a two day visit. An esctoday.com reporter in Israel met her at her hotel and during a reception organized by the Turkish embassy in Israel.
Sertab's visit to Israel started with a couple of photo series on the roof of her Tel-Aviv hotel. Sertab seemed to be thrilled to meet the photographers who came to meet her, including the one of esctoday.com.
In the photo series, she modeled two sets of outfits for various newspapers in Israel and for esctoday.com.
Afterwards Sertab left for Kfar-Shmaryahu where the Turkish ambassador in Israel lives. The embassy and NMC (Sertab's record label in Israel) organized a lavish and fancy reception in the ambassador's back yard. Among those who attended the reception were Lior Narkis, Israel's entrant to the 2003 contest, Tzvika Pick (composer of the 1998 winner, Diva and of the Israeli entry in 2002 and the Ukrainian entry of 2003), and other Israeli pop stars and music industry figuers.
An esctoday.com reporter was present at the photo shoot (which was held at sunset, hence the rather dark photos) and the reception and the pictures are brought to you exclusive. Just open the gallery to watch the pictures (17 of them).
Stay tuned today for more reports of Sertab's visit to Israel!.
