"Let us all pray for Arik Einstein," PR mogul Ran Rahav urged the audience at the beginning of a Channel 2 musical reality program following the nightly news broadcast, which reported on his hospitalization.

Einstein, a singer, songwriter and actor who was born in Tel Aviv, is considered one of the greatest musicians in Israel.

His partnership with Shalom Hanoch created the first local rock albums.

Einstein's most famous songs include Ani Ve'ata (Me and You), Sa Le'at (Drive Slowly), and Oof Gozal (Fly, Little Bird).

Einstein has four children, two with his first wife, Alona, who died of cancer in 2006, and two with his current partner, Sima Elihu.
