In 2009, Mei audition for the Israeli talent show “Kokhav Noland 7.” She went on to land the 3rd place in the show, which made her widely known to the public.

    In 2011, she gave birth to her daughter, Emily. A big advocate of human rights, Mei has spent much of her time volunteering for causes against violence.

     


  • Mei Finegold was internally selected by Israeli broadcaster IBA in early 2014.

    It was decided that she would choose three songs that would be performed and voted on by the public. The three songs were: “Same Heart,” “Be Proud,” and “Nish’eret iti.”

    Mei wrote and composed the song “Be Proud”  herself.

    After the public voted on their choice for Israel, “Same Heart,” by Rami Talmid, was selected as the winning song with 55% of the vote.

  • You fill me up

    With poisoned love

    You fill my soul

    With sins, but I have learnt to grow

     

    And now, too many lies

    Too many cries

    They are as long as the infinity

    I’m, starting to rise

    Don’t need to be criticised

    I’m, not an animal in captivity

     

    I’m, skinning you out

    No longer a part

    We don’t beat from the same heart

     

    אתה שותק

    אני שבויה

    מתוך מילים

    נוצרה דממה

     

    זמן לקום בלי חשש

    לבחור מחדש

    והשמש תתגלה אליי

     

    דם, בוער לא נרדם

    הכח בי קם

    החופש כבר קורא לי לשם

     

    מתוך הדממה אל

    אוויר לנשימה

    לא אחסיר עוד פעימה

     

    זמן לקום ולבחור

    שמיים ואור

    לא אחסיר עוד פעימה.

     

    And it’s time for me to clean up your mess

    I will take it without any regrets

    And it’s time for me to open my eyes

    And to recognise

    We don’t beat from the same heart

     

    I’m, skinning you out

    No longer a part

    We don’t beat from the same heart

     

    We don’t beat from the same heart

     

    We don’t beat from the same heart
