She comes from a musical family. Since she was 8 years old she started giving performances at a local club as a child prodigy playing classical music on the piano. She didn’t tell her parents, and when they found out two years later the performances were over. In that period she taught herself to play the organ, guitar, accordion and darbuka among others.
When she was 15 she joined the Hadera Youth Band. This was the first step to her solo career, during which many of her songs topped the Israeli charts. Israeli Television selected her to represent her country in the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 with the song 'Light a candle'. There were some requests to disqualify this song because of the political situation in Israel, but Eurovision has no rules requiring such disqualification. Her final result was the 12th place.
Sarit Hadad has been a student at the Democratic School of Hadera.
