This year's Croatian Eurovision Song Contest singer is Roko, he was born on 10 March 2000 in Split, Croatia and graduated from fourth gymnasium 'Marko Marulić' in Split. Roko started his music career at an early age and besides singing, he has been playing the piano since he was 7 years old. Over the years, he has participated in many national and international festivals and music reality shows.

Roko became nationally recognised in 2011 through Croatia's Got Talent. But one of his greatest achievements is reaching the final of another big tv talent show in 2018 and coming second. Roko was mentored during the series by Jacques Houdek, a member of the jury and Croatia's 2017 Eurovision Song Contest entrant with My Friend. Jacques is one of the writers of Roko's song The Dream.

This year, Roko won Dora 2019, winning both the jury and audience vote. Dora is Croatia's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest and was broadcast by HRT (Croatian National Television). Becoming the Croatian representative is a dream come true for Roko.

Lyrics of The Dream

I have a dream A dream as beautiful as it is extreme I know it's not as crazy as it may seem So I don’t ever wanna give up on this dream Open your heart And you'll arrive at where the dream has to start To pull a world together out of the parts And turn this war into a hopeful work of art We have lived the darkest night Waiting for the day Now the time for us is right To arise and say I dream of love You dream of love Angels of God We all dream of love We all dream of love Svijetu nisi dužan ti Ništa donijeti Jedino si čovjek kad Možeš voljeti Kao heroj Kao heroj I moj i tvoj Ljubav je heroj Ljubav je heroj
