Noa Kirel is for the girls.
This 20-year-old pop queen tells PEOPLE she’s “all about embracing yourself, being an independent woman, owning what you got and working hard to achieve your dreams.”
Born to Israeli parents and growing up in Tel Aviv, Kirel’s first language was Hebrew and released her debut single at 14 years old. In 2018, she joined Israel’s Got Talent as the youngest judge in the show’s history.
Her female empowerment inspiration comes from icons like Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Rosalía, “They dance, they sing, they write, they do it all,” she says.
A few fun facts about her are that she loves to cook, she started when she was just 3 years old, and she’s “forever a Belieber.”
