    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.
