Israeli pop star Kobi Peretz is a late offspring of a family with 10 brothers and sisters. He was born in Kfar Shalem, Tel-Aviv, and today lives in Holon. His father, Amram (Peti Armo), was a famous Moroccan singer that regularly performed in the royal palace for King Hassan II. Peretz started performing at the age of 16 and released his first album, A Life Mistake, in 1992. He followed up this debut with a run of acclaimed releases, including You Are Like Fire (1995), The Creator (1997), The Arrow of Love (1999), Living Like I Want To (2000), Confuse Him (2003), Crazy About You (2004), All That I Have (2006), How Much Love (2008), and more. Among Peretz's most-loved songs are his hits "How Much Love" (the most-played love song on Israeli radio in 2007, according to ASCAP), "Confuse Him," "All My Strength," "The One In My Life," "You Are Like Fire," "I Love You," "Needing You," "Maybe," "At Nights," and "Together," his duet with Ishtar that won the title Duet of the Year at the Big Apple Music Awards. In February 2010, he made Israeli cultural history after performing in Nokia Hall - a performance whose success and musicianship were unprecedented. The performance resulted in a celebrated live album, Live in Nokia Hall, released in 2011. Peretz has a large, loyal audience of fans that have accompanied him throughout his career. His music receives constant radio play, and he makes frequent television appearances. He began his career as a "crying" artist and is now one of the most prominent stars of Israeli pop music.
