Željko Joksimović (Serbian: Жељко Јоксимовић, born April 20, 1972 in Belgrade) is one of the most popular singers and composers of Serbia, but is also well-known in Europe. He represented Serbia & Montenegro in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Lane Moje”, which finished 2nd behind Ukrainian singer Ruslana.

The years of growing up and education bond him with Valjevo, a place from where he went to test himself in the world of music, and where he always returned as a winner. He started being involved in music very early. He won his first prize as “First Accordion of Europe” at the age of 12 on the prestigious music festival in Paris, France. Željko is one of few musicians that can play more than 14 musical instruments.

Željko started his professional career in 1997 when he released an album produced by record label PGP-RTS (National Radio & TV Serbia). In the midd - nineties (1993, 1996, 1997) he had many accomplishments on the “Belgrade spring” festival as a composer.

His success on the “Song of Mediterranean” festival in Budva 1998, with the composition “The song of sirens” (interpretation award) gave him the possibility of participating on two prestigious international festivals in Belarus, in the cities Mahilyow and Vitsyebsk. In the year 1999 he won the Gran Prix on both festivals.

The last years in the nineties he spent composing music for the theater plays, like “Mandagora”, “Ljubinko and Desanka”, “The slave of love”, “On foot”, “I don’t have money, I won’t pay”…
