Nina Kraljic at the #wiwijam
There’s a Croatian sensation guiding us to the Hard Rock and her name is Nina Kraljic. Our girl is one of the rising stars of the Croatian music scene, having already touched the hearts of millions en route to winning The Voice last year.
Her career hasn’t slowed since then. She followed up her win with her first single “Zaljuljali Smo Svijet”, won the prestigious Porin award for Best Newcomer, and has consistently been one of the bookies top picks for Eurovision 2016. You can’t dim her “Lighthouse”…
We are totally feeling her song, which pulls Croatia’s Eurovision team firmly into 2016.
The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — has a lot of time for Nina and “Lighthouse”.
One juror wrote that “Nina’s voice is gorgeous, so crystal clear and able to deliver delicate notes with strength and power,” while another said her sound conjures up Foxes, Ellie Goulding, and Marina and the Diamonds.
Nina is the first artist to join our guest list for the #wiwijam, but there are plenty of surprises in the pipeline.
