RISE UP: 7 artists that OPENLY support Israel with pride
7 Artists That Unapologetically Support Israel
Jewish public figures taking a stand for Israel is one thing (Hi, Scarlett!), but let’s get to know better these great people of different blood who are proudly standing with Israel. From Frank Sinatra to Lady Gaga, here are 7 non-Jewish performers that showed their love for Israel, for better and for worse, refusing to be intimidated by their peers or fans. Round of applause!
Lady Gaga has already had 2 concerts in Israel, and she was smitten with it! “The world view of Israel is just not reality,” the singer stated in an interview given in 2014.
Her presence in Israel in the summer of 2014 was all the more significant, as several other artists had cancelled due to security concerns over the war with Gaza.
Lady Gaga came, performed, got mad love from the audience and stated in reply: “You are strong, you are brave, you are confident, and I f*cking love you, Israel.” Right back at you, Gaga!
Jon Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi couldn’t care less about the efforts of BDS and other fellow artists to dissuade him from performing in Israel, (after all, it’s his life…). Claiming he has always wanted to tour here, the artist decided now is exactly the right time to finally get down to business, and 50,000 fans heartily agreed.
The artist was a class act and after another tense day in Israel dedicated his song “We don’t run” to the excited crowd with the words “This should be the fight song for Tel Aviv!” You got that right, Bon Jovi!
You never know when a short trip to Israel will turn into a burning desire to perform in the country. For Mariah one thing led to another and during her June visit, she realized she wanted to give a concert there ASAP. These things happen.
Less than 2 months later, 12,000 fans obliged and filled up the arena in Rishon Le Zion. Carey mentioned that despite other people’s political agendas, she was happy and honoured to be there – as were we.
