Mexican singer Adam Kleinberg, a relative of Israel’s founding father David Ben-Gurion, released his first single on Tuesday, after winning first prize at the Hallelujah 2011 singing competition.

The single, which features on the new Hallelujah album, is a remake of Meir Banai’s “Geshem”, and is performed by Kleinberg and Israeli star and producer Momi Levi.

Kleinberg, 21, was selected out of hundreds of applicants from Jewish communities around the world to participate in Hallelujah, an international Jewish singing contest created to find “the next Jewish star.” As one of the 30 finalists, Kleinberg spent three weeks touring Israel last August, training and competing. He was announced winner after he performaned “Lo Kal” (“Not Easy”) by Hayehudim in front of a 3,000-person audience in Ramat Hasharon.
