Danna International (Offer Nissim Presents)

Danna International (Offer Nissim Presents) is the first album by Israeli singer Dana International, released in 1993. In her early days it was common to see her first name spelt "Danna". The album's catalogue number is IMP Dance 1993 - IMP 2004, although quite a few copies of the album misprint the catalogue number as "IMP 4004" on the CD label. The album has covers of Baccara's popular 1970s disco hit "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie" and the Queen song "The Show Must Go On" sung in Hebrew, with the chorus in English. The song "Fata Morgana" appears on this album in two different versions. Singer Ofra Haza and the Austrian band Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung recorded totally different songs each with the same name. The Danna International album includes songs sung in three languages; Hebrew, Arabic and English.
