WHO AM I?
“My heart was bursting from happiness and at the same time I couldn’t believe the change in people. Just because I won [representing Yugoslavia at Eurovision Song Contest in 1990], my worth, my self worth, is all of the sudden bigger? My value as a person? That really, really messed me up. It was not right. I mean I understood something happened and it was great but in the back of my mind…I didn’t have a real awareness of who I was as a person.”
Tajči is a former rock star—no kidding. She filled stadiums for concerts in her native Croatia. She represented her country in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1990, and even had a Tajči doll made after her likeness. But as Tajči grew more and more popular, she knew something wasn’t right with her and her world. At the height of her popularity, Tajči left it all behind to move to New York to study acting, and then to Los Angeles to follow what she called “a bad choice” in a relationship. But, spiritually, as she kept sinking further and further into a dark place, she grew closer and closer to her destined path.
Tajči and her husband Matthew had three boys. Together as a family, they completed a tour of 1,000 free concerts sharing their amazing musical talents and a message of our common humanity. Tragically, her husband, Matthew, lost his fight with cancer in 2017. Today, Tajči continues to perform from her new home base in Nashville.
I am inspired by Tajči and her deep knowing that her rightful path to heal and help others heal was out there.
