About Dana International

An Israeli singer with a big-voiced, dramatic style, Dana International lived up to her name when she won 1998's Eurovision Song Contest, establishing herself as a pop fixture and LGBTQ+ icon for decades to come. The first transgender artist to appear at the competition, her winning song "Diva" built on the success of albums including 1994's platinum-selling Umpatampa, earning her fame across Europe. She remained prominent in Israel's pop world during the 2000s, issuing well-regarded albums such as 2001's Yoter VeYoter and 2007's Hakol Ze Letova and appearing as a judge on the singing competition Kokhav Nolad. Her ties to Eurovision remained strong as she represented Israel once more in 2011 and wrote songs for other Israeli hopefuls, while her performances at Pride events around the world and singles like 2018's "Mi Ha'Ish" spread her message of inclusion.
