For Russian musician Andrey Land, the Hallelujah competition is not just another singing contest, but a way for him to reconnect to his roots. Land currently sings and plays guitar for a band in Moscow, appearing regularly at small venues.

The Hallelujah competition marks Land’s second time in Israel. He says that last time he was here, he felt a connection to G-d.
