I knew Ofrah Haza Z"L (I like translating
her name in this way, according to Hebrew
spelling) and was suddenly caught by her
heavenly voice and then, I've had a very
particular experience regarding her: In Cheshwan 5760, Adonay warned me that He was
to call her home, and told me to pray for
her soul, showing me by His Word in Yeshayahu 59:16 and 59:1...
I didn't know anything about her health
conditions then. I knew about this only
after three days since she was hospitalised
at Sheba in Tel-HaShomer, and Adonay told me:
«Go, stay with her in prayer, for these are
her last days on the earth; I am calling her
home»... and so did I, as it was my task.
Batsheva Ofrah Haza was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, 25th Cheshwan, 5718,
She is in Paradise since 17th Adar I, 5760
(She was murdered).
I just want to say why Ofrah cannot be compared
to any other singer:
She was one of the very, very few singers who
has done excellent performances without need of
musical accompaniment - her songs "a cappella"
are really unique. I think that most other
famous artists are hardly able to sing in this
She performed in many languages perfectly:
Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, English, Spanish/Ladino,
French... &c. &c. She has sung "Deliver Us" in
She was able to succeed in a very difficult
field: non-conventional music style. Only Ofrah
Haza was able to let the world know the ancient
Yemenite Jewish tunes and be successful!
She has done something no other artist achieved:
to have international success even not singing
in English. Artists whose mother language is not
English, had to sing in English in order to have
international acknowledgement. Some few reached
a certain fame in other western languages as
Spanish, Italian or French. But nobody would
have ever dreamt to achieve success by singing
in an ancient tongue like Hebrew or Aramaic! Yes,
Ofrah has sung also in English, but after having
become an international star. Her first hits
were "Im Nin'alu" and "Galbi"... only her latest
albums included songs in English, though most of
them had anyway part of the lyrics in Hebrew.
Unlike most of female singers, she has composed
almost all her songs, music and lyrics, either
alone or with Betzale'el Aloni.
To conclude, Ofrah belongs to another dimension,
that's why she may not be compared with common
human beings. She is actually in other dimension
now, but when she was on this earth, her voice
was heavenly, anyway.
I would give a list of her albums
classifying them by style, in three main groups:
folk, ethnic pop, and pop.
