PostSubject: Nika Turkovic   Fri 20 Mar - 8:21

I finally have time to post more on this forum (Rakugaki please note Smile ). This post is about yet another child singer who deserved a thread long ago. Nika represented Croatia in the second Junior Eurovision Song Contest and came third after Spain's Maria Isabel in first place and the United Kngdom's Cory spedding in second place. When I saw JESC for the first time in late 2004 here in Australia, Nika Turkovic was the first European child singer to stand out to me. Her song Hej Mali (Hey little boy) was fairly good but not remarkable, and looking back I can't recognize what made me look up more of her work... All I can say is I'm glad I did because she has done some fantastic work since. She is not nearly as commercial as Maria Isabel, nor has she released anywhere near as much material (only one full album 'Alien' in 2006 and limited additional tracks released on the internet), but she is a very talented singer and performer with recognizable vocal identity and good stage presence. Also, she now supports many charities and advocacy groups with her music, which is fantastic for young artists to pursue. Check out her website www.nikaturkovic.info for details.

Her first TV performance of Laura Pausini's 'Seamisai' at age 6


Her performance of 'Hej Mali' in Norway, 2004


Performing 'Bakivara' with Emmanuel Jal and other guests at the Tallberg forum in 2007

I note ! Very Happy
And re-welcome here.

Thanks for this post about Nika. I have never seen the 1st video, when she was very young. Very interesting, thank you.
She's not the best singer I ever seen but she's cute and not bad. Her album is nice too.

I love Nika! Very Happy She is so cute and pretty, I love her voice and she is good on stage.
She was so good in JESC I can never agree with myself if I like Cory's or Nika's song most.
"Hej Mali" is soo beautiful, but I also like "Mogu" alot! Razz

Welcome to Alantrix and good posting. Yea! Thanks. Smile


Not necessarily her best vocal or stage performance, but I think she sings this song with great feeling, so I like this one alot. Wish I knew what she was singing about. Anyone know?

I do like the Black Horse and Cherry Tree cover. I just posted that same song by the Castillo kids at the Also Play an Instrument thread.

Hey Kosm1fent. I am not religious at all, but I think I must pray for you. It is not quite like saying Brittany Spears is a better singer than Christina Aguilera, but it is close to that. Razz

Christina kinda sucks, she hasn't been relevant since about 2001.

Hello Stardust. Even though this is really just about children singers and this thread specifically on Nika, I guess I will make one more comment on Christina Aguilera, since she is a former child singer. I had just used the Brittany and Christina reference to joke with Kosm1fent.

I really have to disagree with you about her not being relevant since 2001. Unless you are a person who just doesn't like this kind of music(Raku calls it crying ballads), I very much believe Beautiful and Hurt are two of the best of all time for this genre. Fantastic vocal and emotion. I also like her remake of Candyman. Ain't No Other Man is good too. I am just referring to some of the hits only. She has also won several Grammies since 2001, so a few people agree with me. She certainly doesn't warrant a "kind of sucks" tag.

Thanks Caroline for that video. Very interesting. Even though she hits a few notes flat, it is mostly quite enjoyable. I really like it when they get a live band to back them like this. How old is she now? About 13 or 14 I think? I hope she keeps it going and finds her own sound and individual style. Smile

She's born in June 4, 1995. Thus, she's almost 14, correct. Razz
