Yael Naim....wow!

Saw Yael Naim perform last night at a celebration of Israel's 60th anniversary.  She stole the show (which actually wasn't very hard though did require competing with MC, Natalie Portman).  People who don't recognize the name, surely know her most popular song, New Soul, licensed by Apple for the MacBook Air commercials.  Along with all the other accolades afforded to Steve Jobs, people are giving him credit for discovering this talent.  I'd be curious to know the real story here.  I suspect an ad exec with a finely tuned ear suggested a few songs and while Jobs made the final call, it's this anonymous (for now) guy or gal who deserves the credit.  Either way, I'm in love.  Here are videos of her performing the two songs I saw her do last night:
