“For me as an artist of Palestinian heritage, winning the Voice Israel is solid proof that peace will eventually come from people and not from politicians.” (Lina)
Lina made history as the first Arab to win Israel’s biggest TV show The Voice. It was with the people’s vote that she stormed to victory.
The American-Palestinian-Israeli is fluent in five languages, and is much more than a singer, songwriter and a star whose life story and achievements are already captivating and inspiring.
Lina’s unique talent was recognized by International music industry veteran Irit TenHengel who signed her to her label, Yodan Productions, for a worldwide deal.
Following the success of her first single "Can't Keep Falling", which reached #1 in Israel and top 5 in both Music Week’s Club and Pop Charts in the UK, she is ready to release her new single "I WORE IT BETTER” in October, to coincide with her UK tour with Little Mix. The song was written by Lina, Bhavik Pattani, Josef Melin & Hiten Bharadia.
Lina has just finished recording her debut album titled “Walking On a Tightrope”, produced by 3 international producers; Grammy Award winner Jerry Wonda (USA), Knightstarr (UK) and Tal Forer (Israel).
The album features songs written for Lina by some of the world’s most successful songwriters and includes songs she co-wrote with Brit Award Nominee Maegan Cottone (Britney / Little Mix), Knightstarr (Anne-Marie), the prolific Karen Poole (Janet Jackson), and Hiten Bharadia.

Lina conquers audiences with her powerful voice and live performances, she was selected to open the show for the legendary band Queen + Adam Lambert and this year she headlined the Tel-Aviv, Barcelona and Newcastle Pride Parades, performing in front of hundreds of thousands of people.
She is the first Arab female singer to take part in Gay Pride events, and publicly support the LGBT community, spreading the message of equality and love.
Last month Lina was a special guest of Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff at the Livewire Festival in Blackpool.
Paying tribute to her heritage, she has recorded a special version of ‘Holy War’ by Alicia Keys, and added her own ethnic spin to the song. Alicia Keys shared it with all of her followers exclaiming that she was blown away by Lina's beautiful cover.
She is empowering and opening doors for many young girls and was invited to speak and perform at TED in Tel Aviv.
Armed with a new hit single and joining Little Mix on their tour, Lina is ready to take the UK by storm.
This outstanding Artist proves that when you have such charisma, drive, passion and talent, music is a worldwide language that can break down seemingly, impossible barriers between people, religions and cultures.
