Biography

Noam Kaniel was born on August 18, 1962 in Tel Aviv, Israel. When he was 8 years old, he began singing. He got second place in a children's singing contest. The contest was organized by his future most frequent collaborator, producer Haim Saban, in partnership with Yuda Talit. While he was in Israel, he worked in the Hebrew pop music industry.

In 1972, at the height of the Yom Kippur war, Noam Kaniel was spotted singing in front of soldiers by Mike Brant who was France's biggest selling artist at the time. Brant believed that Noam could be successful in France. Brant convinced Haim Saban to work with Noam. Noam's first french music, "Difficile de Choisir", went straight to the top of the charts. From 1972 to 1978, this was followed in succession by such hits as "Viens Maman on Va Danser", "Une Maman", "Lollipop" and other singles. Two subsequent albums followed. In 1975, Kaniel released an album in Japan in which he sang all 12 tracks in Japanese. This resulted in him headlining a concert tour; first in Tokyo, then in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In 1978, Noam Kaniel recorded France's first-ever major theme song for an animated cartoon show. 1978's "Goldorak" was the first anime series to be telecast in France. Noam became a celebrity in France because of his performance. When Goldorak ended its original run on the French TV market, the theme song had sold over 1.3 million copies. He then moved to Los Angeles, California; and recorded the theme songs Entrechats, The Fantastic Four, Superman, The Incredible Hulk, and, most famously of all, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and She-Ra: Princess of Power.

In the 80s, Noam Kaniel worked in Israeli TV. In the 90s, he worked as a songwriter, returning to the theme song market in 2001.
