This is Israel's darling Lina Makhoul who has just won The Voice Israel with the most soaring and moving rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah you will hear anywhere.
Lina is a nineteen year old Israeli Arab from Acre who now has a record contract and a scholarship. Given how quickly copyright holders have pounced on internet videos that seems likely to be a handsome contract.
Before Hallelujah some may appreciate as a curtain raiser an amateur video of Lina singing Ave Maria at the Church in Nazareth a week ago. I did.
Now go to this CiF Watch post, turn up the speakers and settle back for Lina Makhoul's inspired performance of Hallelujah.
Drop by CiF Watch while you are there if you have a moment. Britain's leading monitor of endemic racism at the Guardian. Get an inside view of the depravity the British left wing media has now reached. If you ever have dealings with a reader of the Guardian it is good to know that if at all possible***. Especially if they have anything to do with the Government.
If that is not enough of Lina here is she a year ago in the first heat knocking out the judges with her version of the Hebrew song When the Heart is Crying.
