Madonna to sing at Eurovision despite calls for boycott of Israel



The holding of the festival in Israel generated a strong repudiation and a call for non-attendance promoted by the BDS (Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) organization that leads an international campaign against the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories

Pop queen Madonna will sing at the Eurovision Song Contest final on May 18 despite calls to boycott the festival, which this year is being held in Israel, because of the conflict with Palestine.

"I will never stop playing my music to please someone else's political agenda, just as I will never stop talking about human rights violations, no matter where in the world they occur," she said in a statement released by the North Press -American.

Its producers announced in April that Madonna would sing two songs, one of them unreleased, in the Eurovision Song Contest, which takes place this year in Tel Aviv after the victory of Israeli singer Netta Barzilai in 2018.

The festival in Israel sparked strong repudiation and a call for non-attendance by the Palestinian-led BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) organization that leads an international campaign against Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

About 50 British personalities, including singer Peter Gabriel and filmmaker Ken Loach, joined the protest against "systematic violation of the rights of Palestinians by Israel."

"My heart is broken every time I hear about innocent lives being lost in this region," Madonna said in her statement. "And the violence that so often perpetuates itself to adapt to the political objectives of the people who benefit from this ancient conflict."

"I hope and pray that we will soon be free from this terrible cycle of destruction and believe in a new path to peace," he added.

The North American star and his entourage of 135 people (rapper KoVu, 40 singers, 25 dancers, technicians, etc.) are expected to arrive on Wednesday, according to a statement from Sylvan Adams, a Canadian-Israeli billionaire known for funding much of Madonna's trip to Tel Aviv.

The Eurovision semifinals are celebrated on 14 and 16 May, and the grand finale on Saturday, 18 may.
