Uzi Hitman (1952-2004)

 

Uzi Hitman [Chitman] came to fame as a solo singer in 1976 through his composition for Adon Olam (click on his personal website* to hear it) after beginning his career in an IDF troupe and working with other artistes like Boaz Sharabi, Lior Yanai, Nurit Galron, Avi Toledano and Ilanit. The new melody also brought him international fame through its popularity with Jewish communities worldwide.

He has composed and written over 650 songs, some of them classics in their own right, others popular Israeli hits. His collaborations on songs with other artists and lyricists were also very successful, and he has written for many of Israel's solo stars over two generations, including Shimi Tabori, Chaim Moshe and those mentioned above. His talent also led him into entertainment in the 1980s, particularly on children's TV, which became his preferred environment. He continued to compose and write songs, and a new album is due to be released shortly.

1978: Nolad'ti leshalom - I was born for Peace - was written for Ido, his newly born son, and - more publicly - to mark the Israel-Egypt Peace Process.
1991: Kan noladeti - I was born here - (Eurovision Song Contest, 3rd place)
