Early life

Boaz was born and raised in a Yemenite family in moshav Elyakim, where he still lives. He is the youngest son of his mother, who became disabled from complications of his birth.

Kokhav Nolad

Without any history in the music industry, and unknown to Boaz, he was signed up by a friend for the auditions of the fifth season of Kokhav Nolad. During the show, Boaz sang many Mizrahi and acoustic songs. His voice was loved by the audience and judges.

At the finals on August 29, 2007, Boaz competed against Marina Maximillian Blumin and Shlomi Bar'el. On that evening he performed two songs: "Señorita" with the experienced Israeli singer David Broza, and then Avner Gadassi's "Menagen veshar" ("Playing & Singing"). He won Kokhav Nolad 2007 with 50% of the votes. In addition, he won a contract with the label Hed Artzi.
