Biography

Rita Yahan-Farouz (Persian : ریتا جهان‌فروز ) ; (English: Jahanforuz; Hebrew: ריטה יהאן-פרוז‎;, Known Simply as Rita, b. March 24, 1962) is an Iranian-born Israeli pop singer and actress, notable for being one of Israel's most famous female singers. After becoming a professional singer and performer in the 1980s, she has appeared in numerous concerts, many being packed with fans, including members of government.

In 2011, she also became popular in Iran as an underground singing sensation after the release of various pop records which she sings in her native Persian language. Iran has tried to block Western-style pop music and filters the Internet. In 2012, her album "All My Joys," also sung in Persian, was popular in both Israel and Iran, going gold in Israel after three weeks. She has since been referred to as a cultural ambassador between Israeli and Iranian citizens, and states she hopes to "puncture the wall of tension" between their countries.
