Kobi Marimi will represent Israel after winning the reality music competition and national selection process HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion and will defend the country’s winning title with the song “Home”. His foray into music began when he took singing lessons as a teenager and his talent has driven him ever since.

“Home” is highly symbolic both for both Marimi and Israel. For Marimi the song is based around how singing brought him “home”, how he gained confidence in himself through music. For Israel, the “home” lyric is poignant for bringing Eurovision back to the often embattled and serially endangered nation.

Though he largely trained to become an actor, performing in several musicals and productions, Marimi hadn’t had a true professional start until HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion.
