Sarit Hadad

Sarit Hadad (born on September 20, 1978) is an Israeli singer. In October 2009 the Israeli Music TV Channel (Channel 24) crowned Sarit Hadad best female singer of the 2000s.

Sarit comes from a musical family and was recognized as a child prodigy. She began performing at the age of eight. She played the piano at a local club without telling her parents. Apart from classical piano, she taught herself to play the organ, guitar, accordion, and a Middle Eastern drum known as the darbuka. At the age of 15, she joined the Hadera Youth Band. When she was 16 she was discovered by Avi Gueta, who is still her manager.

Hadad's career as a pop singer has been highly successful, with many of her songs topping the Israeli charts. In 2002 she was chosen to represent her country with the song Light A Candle. It is rumoured Sarit didn't like the song, she rather would sing an uptempo song at the Eurovision Song Contest but the Israeli broadcaster IBA wanted her to sing Light A Candle and so she went to Estonia and came only 12th. It's confirmed that Sarit's choice would've been Mr DJ Superman.

In 2004 she collaborated with David D'Or to record the DVD Pets in Tunes.

In December 2006 Sarit drew crowds in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles with her Sing with Sarit tour. In July 2007, Madonna revealed that she is a fan of Sarit Hadad and enjoys listening to her music when dining at a kosher restaurant near her home.
