Nina Badrić is was born in Zagreb in 1972. She is one of the most successful Croatian musicians. As a child she was a member of the awarded girl’s choir Zvijezdice (little stars) with whom she went on tour and recorded several albums. Nina tried to represent Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest four times. In 1993 she participated with the ballad Ostavljam te and finished eighth. In 1994 and 1995 she performed the uptempo songs Godine nestvarne and Odlaziš zauvijek, but again finished on lower rankings. Nevertheless Godine nestvarne became a huge hit in Croatia. In 2003 Nina was the runner up behind Claudia Beni singing Čarobno jutro.
Between 1997 and 2003 she received several awards, such as the Porin, Croatia’s most important music award. In Bosnia-Herzegovina she was awarded an Oscar for the best foreign female singer.
Most of her songs are written by her own, so it is no wonder that her entry for Baku – Nebo – is also a self composition.
