The song is titled “Feker Libi,” which translates to “The love of my life” or “My beloved” in Amharic, the official language of Alene’s country of origin.

The 19-year-old’s song mixes Amharic, Hebrew, English and Arabic words.

 

In February, Alene won the Israeli reality show “Rising Star,” whose winner then goes on to represent Israel in the annual Eurovision competition. She is the first singer of Ethiopian Jewish descent to represent Israel in the contest.

Alene, who was born and raised in Jerusalem, is currently a soldier in the Israeli army and lives with her mother in Kiryat Gat.
