Israel: IMRI Celebrates Diversity with his fans

by Stratos Agadellis 779 views

Around a month ago, the Israeli representative at Eurovision 2017, IMRI, started a challenge on Instagram, inviting all people to Celebrate Diversity with him, as the slogan of the 2017 Eurovision invites us.

Something quite prototype!

The singer asked them to send videos of themselves singing a part of his song I feel alive in any way they want. Here is IMRI‘s invitation on Instagram:

Hey guys, This year’s Eurovision theme is “Celebrate Diversity” and we wanna celebrate with you. Send me a video of yourself singing 30 seconds of my song “I Feel Alive”. It could be any part you guys want. You don’t have to be a great singer. You can perform acapella or with an instrument, alone or in a group. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, your age or your belief. The more diverse – the better! In return, I promise to post my favourites in a story on my Instagram. In the email you can add a link to your Instagram profile with the videos. Send your videos to this email: [email protected] and let’s sing together! ❤ ————————- #TeamIMRI #IFeelAlive #eurovision #eurovision2017 #esc #esc2017 #eurovisionsongcontest #celebratediversity #europe #euro #ukraine #kiev #kyiv #israel

 People from around the globe sent their videos, from Turkey to Indonesia, from France to Venezuela. There was even a duet of a woman from Israel and a guy from Lebanon. People of all ages, from 6 to 60 year old, vocalists, pianists, a guitarist and even a violinist took the challenge! Before a few minutes, IMRI thanked his fans and awarded them! A video of his entry where he combines parts of some of the videos that they sent him was uploaded on his official Facebook account.
Here you can enjoy IMRI’s post where he indeed Celebrates Diversity with all these people:
