Nina

Nina (Danica Radojicic) was born in 1989 in Belgrade. She expressed her musical talent at a very early age. When she was six years old, she enrolled in primary music school Vatroslav Lisinski where she finished the piano and solo singing section. In the following years, she had attended at the same time secondary music school and regular high school. She graduated from high school as a valedictorian and is now an excellent student in the third year of the Faculty of Pharmacy.

Her first public appearances as a vocal interpreter and later as a singer/songwriter are related to the Children’s Cultural Centre and competitions called Zlatna Sirena (Golden mermaid) where she was a three-time first prize winner and once received a special reward. She also won several times the first prize for interpretation and composition at the Fedemus competition.


Since 2003, she participates both in national and regional music festivals where she wins first prizes. She also participated in festivals abroad, such as Coventry Peace Month in England or Srebrna Jantra festival in Bulgaria where she was awarded first prize for interpretation.


In February 2010, she started a band called Legal Sex Department and has taken part in the Belgrade club scene more and more often as a lead singer.


In this year’s competition for Serbian representative at European Song Contest 2011, on the national television (RTS) show, Nina sang a Kristina Kovac composition. It is interesting that Kristina chose her to perform the song Čaroban (Magical) at the last moment. She watched her videos on YouTube, decided to call her to make a test recording and had right away understood that Nina was the best solution for the song. With her specific interpretation, voice quality, young energy and charm, Nina has captivated not only Kristina, but also a wide TV audience. Even though this was her first appearance at this kind of festival, she won a convincing victory and rightfully represents Serbia in Europe.

Her musical influences are Muse and Duffy as well as other musicians of pop and alternative genres.

Lyrics of Čaroban

Čaroban

Ciča zima i svud je prokleti led
Baš sam imala težak dan
Ljudi čudni su, niko ne zna za red
Kući vučem se umorna

I dok kopam po tašni da pronađem ključ
Već na ivici nerava
Moje sunce, moj mesec i zvezdice sve
Moj muškarac mi otvara
Moj je čovek na vratima

I istog trena
Vredim kao hiljadu žena
Jer njemu sam lepa i jaka k'o stena
I kad me grli znam da sve je u redu
Čovek je čaroban!
Sve moje mrakove u proleće boji
Otkad me voli, ja uspravno stojim
I njemu ja sam dobra baš kakva jesam
Čovek je čaroban!

Zbogom tugo i zdravo osmehu moj
Sreća s njim se doselila
Tako topao, nežan i predivno svoj
Samo meni on pripada

Dugo pričamo, moj je najbolji drug
S njim se smejem k’o blesava
Ljudi mi kažu nisu videli par
Koji tako isijava
Naša ljubav je zarazna

Sada znam da
Vredim kao hiljadu žena
Jer njemu sam lepa i jaka k'o stena
I kad me grli znam da sve je u redu
Čovek je čaroban!
Sve moje mrakove u proleće boji
Otkad me voli, ja uspravno stojim
I njemu ja sam dobra baš kakva jesam
Čovek je čaroban!
Magical

It’s freezing cold and damned ice is everywhere
I had such a rough day
People are strange, no one has any manners anymore
I’m dragging myself home, tired

And as I dig through my bag to find the key
Already at the end of my nerves
My sunshine, my moon and all of my little stars
My guy opens
My man is at the door

And in a second I am worth a thousand women
Because to him I’m beautiful and strong as a rock
And when he holds me I know everything is alright
The man is magical
He colors all my darkness into springtime
Since he’s been loving me, I’ve been standing tall
And for him I am good just the way I am
The man is magical

Goodbye sorrow, and hello my smile
Happiness moved in with him
So warm, tender and wonderfully himself
He belongs to me only

We talk for hours, he’s my best friend
I laugh with him like crazy
People tell me, they have never seen a couple
That shines so bright
Our love is contagious

Now I know
I am worth a thousand women
Because to him I’m beautiful and strong as a rock
And when he holds me I know everything is alright
The man is magical
He colors all my darkness into springtime
Since he’s been loving me, I’ve been standing tall
And for him I am good just the way I am
The man is magical
Magique

Hiver glacial et maudit verglas partout
J'ai eu une journée vraiment dure
Les gens sont étranges, personne ne suit les règles
Je me traîne jusqu’à la maison, fatiguée

Et pendant que je fouille dans mon sac à la recherche de mes clés
Déjà à bout de nerfs
Mon soleil, ma lune et toutes les petites étoiles
Mon mec ouvre
Mon homme attend à la porte

Et le temps d’un instant
Je vaux mille femmes
Car il me trouve belle et forte comme un roc
Et quand il me tient dans ses bras, je sais que tout va bien
L’homme est magique !
Il colore tous mes ténèbres en printemps
Depuis qu’il m’aime, je me tiens debout
Il m’aime exactement telle que je suis
L’homme est magique !

Adieu tristesse et bonjour mon sourire
Le bonheur est arrivé avec lui
Si doux, tendre et merveilleusement lui-même
Il n’appartient qu’à moi

Nous parlons longtemps, il est mon meilleur ami
Avec lui, je ris comme une folle
Les gens me disent qu’ils n’ont jamais vu un couple
Qui brille autant
Notre amour est contagieux

Maintenant je sais que
Je vaux mille femmes
Car il me trouve belle et forte comme un roc
Et quand il me tient dans ses bras, je sais que tout va bien
L’homme est magique !
Il colore tous mes ténèbres en printemps
Depuis qu’il m’aime, je me tiens debout
Il m’aime exactement telle que je suis
L’homme est magique !
