Netta Barzilai performs live in China


(JTA) — Israeli singer Netta Barzilai introduced her brand of pop music to China.

Barzilai performed live on Chinese television to over 500 million viewers on Friday, as part of the Zhejiang Satellite TV Autumn Festival.

She performed her hit single “Nana Banana” alongside Naomi Wang Ju, the singer who has been dubbed China’s Beyoncé.  Wang won the Chinese singing reality show Produce 101 a year ago and has a large following in her homeland.

“I just can’t believe how fortunate I am. I got a CRAZY opportunity to sing my song in front of 500 million people that know nothing about me — live on Chinese television. It felt so surreal,” Barzilai posted on Instagram.
