Yes, the Shomron Has a Voice

Meet Eyal Cohen, 28 year old resident of Kfar Tapuach in the Shomron (also my own hometown).

Last night, he auditioned and was selected to be featured on season 3 of Israeli TV's "The Voice" music competition.

All four of the judges were so impressed with his performance that each of them took turns vying for the opportunity to act as his mentor. 

Israeli rock star Aviv Gefen (a known leftist) said: "We come from different worlds, but for that reason, I offer you an olive branch." Eyal decided to take Gefen up on his offer, and will continue on to the next stages of the competition with the benefit of the star's direction.  

The residents of Kfar Tapuach send Eyal best wishes for success on the show and in his music career.
