In 2013, Lina won The Voice Israel, an incredible achievement, musically and culturally, considering the fact she is the first Palestinian to ever win a major TV show chosen by the Israeli public, an her star has been on the rise ever since.
Last September Lina supported Queen + Adam Lambert where she performed 3 songs in front of 60,000 people.
Now Lina is headed to Mzansi to perform at the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras & Arts Festival in Knysna, due to be held from May 24 – 27. Celebrating its 18th year, the main purpose of Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival Southern Africa Foundation NPC / NPO is to assist the greater Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ+) community, in supporting causes and charitable events, providing education and awareness programs, and creating an ethos of care within the community and beyond.
Lina recorded a special cover version of Alicia Keys’ song “Holy War” where she added some of her own Arabic lyrics and flavours. Alicia Keys was blown away by Lina’s performance and posted the video on all her social media and shared it with 34 million fans, recommending Lina. The reaction from the fans and media has been incredible.
