Nina

Čaroban

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

Serbian (Original)

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!

English

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 !
