Noa Kirel

As a showstopping vocalist, clever lyricist, dynamic dancer, and scene-stealing actress, Noa Kirel presents a different kind of story for popular music and culture. Cited by The Hollywood Reporter as “Israel’s biggest pop star,” she has emerged as an influential and inspirational force, picking up four MTV EMAs, serving as a judge on Israel’s Got Talent, landing looks from Billboard, Washington Post, and Deadline, and generating hundreds of millions of views and streams, among other accolades. At just 20-years-old, she is going global, expanding her vision yet again with her English-language debut on Atlantic Records. Growing up in a suburb of Tel Aviv, Noa was born with one kidney, developing a will to endure at a young age. She gravitated towards dance at just three-years-old, taking classes and studying the artform. Organically, she sang and penned music of her own inspired by multi-hyphenates such as Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez. At 14-years-old, she unveiled her debut single “Medabrim” (“Talking”) and exploded as a phenomenon in Israel. Successive Hebrew-language smashes followed such as “Million Dollar,” “Pouch,” “BLING BLING,” and more. In 2018, in between picking up the MTV EMA in the category of “Best Israeli Act” four consecutive years in a row, she joined the panel on Israel’s Got Talent as the youngest judge in the show’s worldwide history. Noa also starred in her own highly acclaimed TV series, Double Take, which recently wrapped its fifth and final season. In 2020, she enlisted in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) despite a medical exemption for her kidney. Closing 2020, she not only landed a deal with Atlantic Records, but a feature film produced by Picturestart. At the same time, she grew her brand across the board as the face of Samsung, Fila, Mac, and Keff in Israel. Supporting the LGBTQ+ community, she joined forces with comedian Ilan Peled for the single “Trilili Tralala” in honor of Pride Month. Noa asserts herself like never before with her first statement-making English-language single “Please Don’t Suck.” To accompany the track, she joined forces with director Jake Wilson and iconic choreographer Sean Bankhead for a jaw-dropping music video complete with eye-popping fashion, explosive routines, and endless sass and style. Produced by The Monarch and co-written by Noa, the track flips the classic melody of “Mr. Sandman” into a hummable and hypnotic bop. This year Noa continues to make her presence known worldwide and tell her story to a new audience.
