Liel Kolet’s performances in Boca Raton mark the first leg of her Ray of Hope Concert Tour across the United States in support of her forthcoming album, “Ray of Hope,” produced by 16-time Grammy Award Winner Humberto Gatica, which is scheduled to be released in June 2013.
Twenty-three year-old vocal powerhouse Liel Kolet began her professional career at the age of 12, after winning the prestigious European talent contest, Bravo Bravissimo. Blessed with extraordinary talent, an angelic voice and a magical persona that captivates audiences around the world, Liel has performed all over the world and has collaborated with musical greats, Andrea Bocelli, The Scorpions, Patti Labelle, Herbie Hancock and Slash, and has also had the honor of sharing a stage with President Bill Clinton.
Liel’s career skyrocketed in 2003, after a landmark performance at Israeli President Shimon Peres’ 80th birthday celebration, during which Liel spontaneously invited President Bill Clinton to join her on stage to sing one of history’s greatest peace songs, John Lennon’s “Imagine,” along with a choir of 40 Jewish children and 40 Arabic children. The impromptu duet was broadcast via CNN/International, instigating a firestorm of publicity that elevated Liel’s status internationally, making her a “highly sought after personality” for royal events, peace concerts and charity events throughout the world.
Born to Jewish parents with Indian, Yemenite and Egyptian roots on a Kibbutz in northern Israel, Liel’s upbringing in one of the most war-torn parts of the world shaped her musical and personal goals, instilling a burning desire to spread the message of peace through her music and voice. Liel’s personal crusade to promote peace and for the well being of children all over the world has brought the singer-songwriter international attention as her generation’s symbol of peace.
In 2007 Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert nominated Liel as Official Ambassador for Northern Israel. She has also serves as official ambassador for The Peres Center for Peace, Sheba Medical Center Children’s Hospital and international peace organizations Seeds of Peace and Children of Peace. In addition, since beginning her musical career at age 13, Liel has performed to raise funds and awareness for a number of organizations, including the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNISEF), Women’s International Zionist Organization (WIZO), The Urban Zen Foundation, KidsRights, Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) and Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
Liel’s performances are more than just music. A true ambassador of peace, Liel’s songs move and leave audiences with a remarkable experience.
