An Israeli street musician was invited to play on stage with American pop icons Maroon 5 in Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park after the band's frontman spotted the young singer-songwriter playing from his hotel and shared her performance with his millions of followers, Ynet has learned on Monday.
Coral Bismuth has been busking in the streets of Tel Aviv for years, playing a mixture of cover songs and original tunes.
On Saturday, she was performing on the coastal city's famous promenade like she often does, entertaining a crowd of beachgoers passing by.
At that time, the band's lead singer Adam Levine was watching on from his beachfront hotel room and shared Bismuth's performance with his 14.2 million followers on Instagram.
Levine followed Bismuth on Instagram and the dynamic between the two resulted in her being invited to join the band on the big stage in Yarkon Park.
It is still unclear whether Bismuth would play alongside Levine in one of his songs or open for the band. Either way, the 27-year-old will fulfill the dream of many artists, and will play in front of an audience of tens of thousands of roaring fans.
Levine and his bandmates were also caught by paparazzi touring Jerusalem over the weekend ahead of the group's concert in Tel Aviv. The band visited several of the capital’s holiest and most important religious sites, including the Western Wall.
Maroon 5's two performances in Israel on Monday and Tuesday will seal its Middle Eastern tour.
