Israeli Singer Yael Naim Wins Award

March 10, 2008

French-born, Israeli-raised Yael Naim won the Album of the Year award in France. Naim, who served in the Israeli army as a soloist in the Air Force Orchestra, has recently become a household name in the US when her song, New Soul, was chosen for the Macbook Air commercial. It is currently the most downloaded song in iTunes.

The album, her second, is not available yet in Israel, but I did hear the song on Galgalatz yesterday – I can see why it would be chosen for an Apple ad.

Congrats to another successful Israeli!
