Eden Alene won the national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel last year. The Ethiopian-Israeli singer would then sing “Feker libi”, a song with a title in Amharic, the language of Ethiopia. When it became known that the Eurovision song contest was canceled, she was told about it live on television. She burst into tears.
The Israeli broadcaster again chose Eden Alene for this year. “Set me free” was chosen from several songs.
