Тамара Тодевска (English: Tamara Todevska) also known as Tamara, is a Macedonian pop singer. Tamara Todevska was born in Skopje. She was raised in a musical family. Her father, Velko Todevski, is a Macedonian professor in a music school and her mom, Branka Todevska, is a Bosnian Serb opera singer. Tamara's mom influenced her deep, operatic vocal style. Her older sister is Tijana Dapčević.
Her first official song is a duet with her sister Tijana called "Игра луда" (Crazy Game), released in 1997. Her first single as a solo artist was "Дали знам" (Do I Know) released in 2002 which became a hit in her home country, although it wasn't until the next year before her music career broke through outside of Macedonia when she sang "1003" at the Montenegrin festival 'Sunčane Skale', where she placed 2nd.
Tamara has released two full-length studio albums thus far, "Sino" (Blue) back in 2005 and "Еден ден" (One Day) in 2015. Meanwhile, she had released multiple stand-alone singles and collaborated with various artists in the region.
In February 2008, Tamara won the 'Skopje Fest 2008' with the composition "Во име на љубовта" (literally translated - In the Name of Love) featuring Rade Vrčakovski and Adrian Gaxha. The song became a moderate hit in the Balkans, and was predicted to do well in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 which was held in Belgrade, Serbia that year. The song was later renamed "Let Me Love You" and was sung in six languages (Macedonian, English, Serbian, Turkish, Russian and Albanian). In the Eurovision Song Contest they set in the second semifinal on the number 18. They reached 10th place in the semifinal, but with the decision of the jury they failed to qualify to the final.
Tamara was internally chosen to represent Macedonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv.
