The Divine Miss Dana
The morning after Dana's Eurovision victory, Allison Kaplan Sommer profiled Dana in The Jerusalem Post.
Perhaps nothing describes Dana International better than the opening line of the song that she belted out to the world last night, to win the Eurovision Song Contest: "There are some women who are simply larger than life."
While she has long since achieved icon status in the Tel Aviv nightclub scene and national notoriety through her string of hit songs, Dana's fame has multiplied thanks to the magnifying glass of international publicity. But when she brought home the trophy last night in Birmingham, England, the colorful and flamboyant singer also won first place in the race for media attention.
