Last Weekend Kobi Marimi Released Song “Home” Which Will Represent Israel At Eurovision 2019

In mid-February, we reported that Kobi Marimi won the Israel national selection show, HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion, and last weekend saw him drop his official Eurovision song, which is titled “Home”.

The track has been written by Ohad Shargai and Inbar Weitzman. It really allows Kobi Marimi to shine, showing off his soulful, big voice. It’s full of power and emotion which is bound to stun us on the Eurovision stage. It’s quite the fitting title since he is performing the song in his home country of Israel, in the city of Tel Aviv.

The music video is a pure performance visual displayed in black and white, showing off what we can expect from him on stage. We’re excited to see how he performs this live.
