Arab woman wins on Israel?s ?The Voice?

JERUSALEM?(JTA) -- An Israeli-Arab woman beat out three other competitors to win Israel's second season of "The Voice."

Lina Makhoul, 19, of Acre, will receive a record contract and a scholarship to music school.

After winning the three-month long contest, Makhoul, who is Christian, said during the live finale that she had been victimized by racism throughout the filming of the popular reality show.

"Thank you for listening, believing, taking part, and putting the music first," Makhoul said after her victory.

In her final performance, Makhoul sang Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
