!! Ivri Lider sings in English !!

Openly gay Israeli superstar singer/songwriter Ivri Lider [official website] has released his first U.S. single, and it’s about a boy (a boy named “Jesse” to be exact). Lider has several platinum records in Israel and has an English-language album in the works. Could he be the next Shakira?
“Jesse” is one song on Sony/BMG’s new compilation of gay artists called “Music with a Twist: Revolutions.”
Watch one of Lider’s earlier music videos after the jump. The whole video is shot in one take with the actors standing very still.

  1. I have been exposed to the next “great” icon in popular music and I am luvin’ it. Ivri, you are inspirational! “Jesse” is great, but I am nutz over “The Man I Love”!!! A, somehow, modern twist on a classic yet keeping it simple and showing true artistic talent without a bunch of techno studio tweeking! UR Great Man!!!

    I would like to hear jesse in Hebrew though.

  3. I love the accent. The man is nice to look at. No complaints at all. : )..

  4. As a dedicated semito-phile, Ivri makes me wanna’ up and move. ANI OHEV OTCHA!

  5. Mixed feelings on this one. The arrangement is nice, slick and infectious but the lyrics seem a little too simple, too directly translated. Of course I don’t make a living predicting hits.
    Also, Ivri Lider is fun to look at. Oh my, yes.

  6. ‘Jesse’ made me cry. A beautiful, sweet song by a beautiful, sweet man. I haven’t heard any of his stuff before now, but I’m going to try and find some of it. Even the accent is a turn on.
