PARIS – Israeli-French singer Yael Naim has won the Album of the Year Award in the World Music category at the Victoires de la Musique annual French award ceremony that recognizes the best singers of the year.

 

Thirty-year-old Naim was born in France and immigrated with her family to Israel at the age of four. She grew up in the country and served in the IDF as a soloist in the Air Force Orchestra, before launching her successful career abroad.

 

Naim won the award for her self-titled album "Yael Naim."

 

When she went on stage to accept the award, the excited young artist thanked her family in Israel and Paris, and performed her hit song "New Soul."

 

Naim's second album, which includes songs in both French and Hebrew, as well as a cover for Britney Spears' song "Toxic", was warmly received by radio stations and TV music channels in France.

 

Another singer of Israeli decent, Keren Ann, was nominated for two awards in the ceremony – singer of the year and pop-rock album of the year.
