A few weeks ago, Israel chose Imri Ziv to represent the country at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. He earned the honour after winning HaKokhav HaBa L’Eirovizion. Since his victory, IBA have been hard at work to find Imri the perfect song. A special committee have chosen I Feel Alive, composed by Dolev Ram & Penn Hazut who have been responsible for some of Israel’s biggest hits in recent times.
A summer dance anthem?
The entry will be presented on March 9th. Ahead of the reveal, Imri and his team have been busy filmed the official music video this weekend. As a result, various videos from the set of the video have been posted on social media. Therefore, these are giving us our first taste of the video and the song itself. Give it a watch below.
The video reveals that I Feel Alive is a dancefloor banger with ethno-pop elements. In addition, even in this small clip we can hear that Imri is given the chance to shine with his strong vocals too. Furthermore, the video itself shows a crowd of people dancing to the Israeli entry with Imri singing at the front. It certainly makes us want to join the party!
