With both parents hailing from Ethiopia, 20-year-old Eden Alene was born in Jerusalem. After studying ballet for 11 years through her young life, Eden started taking vocal training lessons and soon after decided to pursue a career in music.

While living in Jerusalem as a teenager, Eden was in a choir of local young adults who would come together from all backgrounds and religions to show the potential of music to bring people together.

Growing up, Eden was particularly taken with soul and pop artists such as Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson and Chris Brown. She takes inspiration from many different styles and genres of music, including Arabic folk music, Gospel and Opera as well.

In 2018, Eden won X Factor Israel and, 2 years later, The Next Star, Israel's national selection show for the Eurovision Song Contest. Today, Eden serves in the military as a singer in a band and splits her time between performances in the army, in Israel and abroad.
