Two years ago, Tamar "Tai" Amar, who participated in "The Next Star" and "The Voice," passed away. On Thursday morning, her family released a song of hers called "Don't Need Nobody" produced after her death by Yinon Yahel, Niv Ben Eli and Aviv Gerti. Amar wrote and composed the song before her tragic death together with Niv Ben Eli and she sang on the recording.
On her Instagram page, her family wrote her a message full of pain and longing: "Our Tamari, almost two years have passed and today your second song is coming out, unfortunately you are not here to give an opinion so we hope we manage to make you happy. The longing does not let go and the feeling of missing out is huge beyond words. Not only did we miss you, it's a miss for the whole world, especially the music world that missed out on a rare talent like yours. It's hard to digest your lack but you're right with us all the time and we feel you with us. You left a mark here that belongs only to you and we will continue to immortalize you through your special music. Love you forever."

In August 2021, Tamar Amar, nicknamed "Tai," passed away. Her brother, Aviram Amar, eulogized her on Instagram, alongside a video of the two of them singing: "My Tai, I don't have many words right now and I can't digest so much and don't know what's going on. I never imagined in my worst dreams that this day would come. Let me be in your place, but just not you! Why you, my love? What a disaster, what a terrible disaster, my life, forever I love you. You were the most talented there is, and we always thought and were sure that you would conquer every possible peak with this blessed voice! Now you're gone and my heart has gone with you. I will forever love you and you will be etched in my heart, my Ty, my whole world."
Amar reached the finals of the third season of "The Voice" in 2014, in Aviv Geffen's group, and the semifinalists in the sixth season of "The Next Star for Eurovision" in 2019. At the end of 2016 she released the single "Lanterns", in which she collaborated with Ohad Rain (Old Man River), who was also among the contestants on Geffen's team in The Voice. She also appeared in the musical "Lazarus" based on the songs of David Bowie.
"We spent many hours together, in television studios and recording studios," Aviv Geffen told Walla! Culture. "I suppose you can be precise about takes, but it's hard to be precise. I am terribly saddened and have had the honor of meeting and working with her, hugging the family at this difficult time."
