Israeli Singer Who Caused National Stir Begins First Album

Shai Sol releases new worship song, seeks crowd-funding for first album of original Hebrew music following national TV appearance

Shai Sol, the young Israeli Messianic singer who caused something of a national stir in December after boldly declaring her faith while competing in the televised singing contest Hakochav Haba (The Next Star), is now working on her first album.

Israel Today covered Shai’s initial “coming out,” which was shocking enough for Hakochav Haba’s producers to make it the focus of their weekly promotional commercials at the time.

That episode sparked a very positive debate in the Israeli media regarding Jewish believers in Yeshua and their place in Israeli society.

Israel Today’s David Lazarus later spoke to Shai and learned how her television appearances had encouraged many more young Israeli believers to share their faith. (The full interview can be read in the February 2015 issue of Israel Today Magazine)

Since leaving Hakochav Haba, Shai has written yet another song to go with her catalogue of over 300 originals (see below).

She is also asking Israel Today readers to help her out in a crowd-funding campaign to produce her first full album. You can click here to learn more
