ABOUT JUDAH

Judah is an Israeli singer-songwriter based in New York City. 

In March 2018 Judah was a finalist in the San Marino Eurovision Song Contest Pre-selection after competing with his song "Stay" and was a finalist in the Israeli Eurovision Song Contest Pre-selection competing with his song "We're Beautiful" finishing in 3rd place among the public vote. 


After a period in New York, teaching music, dancing and acting in a Jewish summer camp, Judah found himself in 2006 in Israel again, planning to study performing arts in Israel. But then he got an unexpected phone call: his ex-commander from the Army, where he had served as a singer in the Rabanuth Choir, asked him if he would like to be a cantor in a synagogue in Brooklyn during Yom Kippur. The new visit led him to reconsider schools in the city.

Judah auditioned at The American Music and Dramatic Academy and was awarded a sizable scholarship. After graduating from AMDA in February 2009 following two years of study, Judah performed in concerts and live performances on one of the most prestigious stages in the world such as: Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, City Winery, Le Poisson Rouge, BB Kings in New York City. Performed all over United States in musicals: "The Full Monty", "Aida", "Legally Blonde", "The Best Little...in Texas", "Kingdom", "The Tenth Floor" (NYMF 2010), "All American" (Off-Broadway), "A Christmas Carol", "Fade Out- Fade In" (Off-Broadway) and more...

In May 2018 Judah performed in Africa's biggest Art Festival- HIFA in Harare, Zimbabwe where he sang in the grand opening ceremony and on the global stage with his one man full length show and received raving reviews. 

 

Judah has released four singles "Stay" (Eurovision '18), "Falling", "Stay" and "We're Beautiful" (Eurovision '13) now available on iTunes, Spotify and stores.
