Dana International booking

Category / genre: ,

When Israeli singer Dana International won the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest, the ensuing headlines
not only related to her triumph, but also to her gender — the first transsexual ever to appear at the
competition was a media sensation even before “Diva” took the ultimate Eurovision honor. Since that
time, her success has only multiplied. Dana International was born Yaron Cohen in Tel Aviv on
February 2, 1973, and made her first impact on the local music scene in 1993 with a cover of Whitney
Houston’s “My Name Is Not Susan” — retitled “My Name Is Not Sa’ida” for the occasion. Her first
album, Dana International, followed, while that same year saw Cohen undergo gender reassignment
surgery in London. She returned home as Sharon Cohen. A second album, Umpatampa, consolidated
her initial success in 1994, proving a hit around the Middle East and earning Dana the year’s Best
Female Artist title at the Israeli Music Awards. Further successes followed, withEP Tampa in 1995 and
the 1996 album Maganuna — home to the hits “Don Quixote,” “Cinquemilla,” and “Waving.” In 1997
she recorded Another Sex, an album with fellow Israeli star Eran Zur.
Dana International first appeared at Eurovision in 1995, when she finished second in the Israeli
qualifying competition. She went one better in the 1998 qualifiers and, despite opposition from various
Israeli religious groups, went on to represent Israel on the international stage. Her victory was followed
by “Diva” becoming a hit across Europe, including a number 11 berth in the U.K. and Top Ten slots
elsewhere. The album of the same name was also a smash. Strangely, however, further success was
not to follow immediately. A projected record deal with Sony fell through, and covers of Barbra
Streisand’s “Woman in Love” and Stevie Wonder’s “Free” flopped, a fate that also awaited the
European Free album. Dana’s Israeli career faltered as well, and the 2000 documentary film Lady D
was widely regarded as her final glory. But 2001 saw Dana bounce back with her first album in two
years, and her biggest hit since Diva. Yoter Ve Yoter (More & More) included the hits “I Won” and
“After All,” and the renaissance continued with 2002′s Ha’chalom Ha’efshari (The Possible Dream). A
hits collection, The CDs Collection followed in 2003, before Dana International’s career underwent
another hiatus. Four years would elapse before she resurfaced with the 2007 hit “Hakol Ze Letová”
(It’s All for the Best). ~ Dave Thompson, All Music Guide.
