    The X Factor winner Alexandra Burke will perform at next month's Zionist Federation event, celebrating Israel’s 65th birthday.

    The star, who spent time singing at weddings and barmitzvahs with leading simchah performers the Gilev Showband before her rise to fame in 2008, will perform at the Yom Ha’atzmaut event on April 16.

    Her first single, a cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, sold a record 105,000 copies in one day.

    Other acts on the bill, set to attract an estimated 10,000-strong audience, include Israeli pop star Ivri Lider, Britain's Got Talent winning dance troup Spellbound, Chico from the Gipsy Kings and comedian Mark Maier.
