A veteran of the first season of "Kochav Nolad/A Star is Born," Boris Soltanov has appeared in many theater, film, and television productions, both in Israel and abroad. Boris immigrated to Israel with his family from the former Soviet Union at age 13. A teenage immigrant, his path was a difficult one, however he managed to master the language, serve in the IDF, and break into the Israel music scene. Boris became so successful that he began touring with the country's top performers, and even took part in representing Israel at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest. Boris enjoys speaking to audiences about his path as an Israeli, particularly the tough issues he overcame during his immigration.
