Israel will make its debut at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Amsterdam next month with a six-member group known as KIDS.IL. The 11-to-14-year-old crooners are coming armed with a song – Let the Music Win — penned by one of Israel’s best singer/songwriters, Ohad Hitman.

The Israeli song is in Hebrew with the chorus sung in French, Russian and English. It’s a catchy pop song that boasts sweet harmonies by the peewee presenters.

The Junior Eurovision Song Contest began in 2003 and is produced by the European Broadcasting Union, the same producers of the Eurovision Song Contest.

In addition to Israel, Albania and Azerbaijan will also be making their debuts at the junior contest this year. Altogether there will be 12 countries taking part in the December 1 event.
