Highly acclaimed soul singer Nomi Teplow began her musical career singing opera and show tunes. A coloratura soprano, she gave recitals and concerts throughout Israel and performed as a soloist with many of Israel's symphony and chamber orchestras. Nomi participated in several Israel Festival productions, has worked with leading Israeli artists such as Yoni Rechter and Shlomo Gronich, and her performances have been aired on Israeli radio and television.

Today, Nomi writes and sings soul, pop and rock music with a contemporary Israeli/Jewish flavor. Several of Nomi's songs have been included in American Jewish compilation CDs and her music has been published in “Mizmor Shir,” a publication of Israel’s Ministry of Education. Nomi’s music is heard on Israeli and international radio stations and she performs her music throughout Israel, bringing uplifting messages of faith and hope during these difficult times

Nomi is about to release her third CD, Kamaayan Hamitgaber/Like a Rushing Spring. The recording, produced by Moshe Wohl and Nomi Teplow, presents a variety of musical styles and utilizes the musical talent of some of Israel’s leading instrumentalists as well as the vocals of “The Black Hebrew Gospel Singers”.

Nomi, accompanied by pianist Liat Perlov Meiri, will present a beautiful and uplifting program of prayer and hope including meaningful showtunes such as "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables, in Hebrew (for our soldiers), Barbara Streisand's "Avinu Malkenu", beloved Israeli songs such as "Latet", "Shir Lamaalot" and "Lu Yehi," as well as her own original music.
