Two Israeli Eurovision queens, Netta and Sarit Hadad, have joined forces and released the cover remix version of Hedva Amrani’s 70’s mega hit ‘Belev Echad’.
Hedva Amrani competed at the 1978 Israeli Eurovision national final and tied with Yizhar Cohen for the golden ticket to Eurovision 78 with her entry ‘Belev Echad‘. IBA decided to send Yizhar Cohen to Paris who eventually gave Israel its Eurovision victory with his evergreen ‘A-ba-ni-bi’.
Eventhough Hedva Amrani didn’t get the chance to represent Israel at the 1978 Eurovision Song Contest in Paris ‘Belev Echad‘ went on to become a massive hit in Israel and earned itself a coveted place in the country’s musical history.
42 years on two of Israel’s most sought after artists, Netta Barzilai ( Israel 2018) and Sarit Hadad (Israel 2002) have joined forces and released a remix cover version of ‘Belev Echad’.
