    Londoners will get the chance to see what so impressed the secretary-general of the United Nations when Israeli pop star Rita comes to town next month.

    The Iranian-born singer, whose full name is Rita Yahan-Farouz, performed at the UN General Assembly in March where she was praised by Ban Ki-moon.

    Now she is gearing up for a show at the London Hilton Metropole on December 12, when she will be singing songs from her My Joys album. “I hope Jews and non-Jews, Israelis and Iranians come to see me perform,” she said.

    Rita has a loyal following in Israel and is hugely popular in Iran, particularly among women, despite official disapproval of her music.

    You can get tickets through the box office Tzemach Productions, call 02082017441/2.
