Nina Kraljić was born in Lipovljani (south east of Zagreb), Croatia in 1992. Since her childhood she was involved with music in different music projects and in the synchronisation of animated movies. Her first TV appearance was in 2009 when she entered the Croatian version of Got Talent. In The Voice 2015 she took home the victory of this prestigious event. Her debut single “Zaljuljali smo svijet” has been watched over 600.000 times in the internet. In 2016 she was nominated for three Croatian music awards (Best New Act, Best Song Arrangement, Best Female Vocals Performance). Obviously, Nina was the best choice to send to Stockholm.
The song “Lighthouse” was produced by Thorsten Brötzmann in Germany. It’s a beautiful song about light guiding the way through dark oceans. The video-clip is only showing the Croatian coastline with different weather formats and a lot of flashes, but not showing the singer at all. The striking chorus is overwhelming accompanied by some ethnic Croatian elements. “Lighthouse” is a very catchy and contemporary song which is a strong candidate for the Grand Final in Stockholm.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
