1 July 1970 (age 49)
Tajči (pronounced "TY-chee") was the stage name of Tatjana Matejaš Cameron (born Tatjana Matejaš on 1 July 1970 in Zagreb), a Croatian singer who became a pop star in former Yugoslavia in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Her newer stage name Tatiana is more synonymous with her birthname.
She represented Yugoslavia at the Eurovision Song Contest 1990 in Zagreb with the song Hajde da ludujemo, after which her promising career was soon cut short by the breakup of Yugoslavia and subsequent war .
Tajči left Croatia in 1991 and pursued a career in stage musicals. She ended up in the United States, seeking television and recording work in the Los Angeles area. There she met Matthew Cameron, whom she married in 2000. She ended up performing music in Roman Catholic churches while auditioning for roles, some of which she turned down because they required nudity.
The family has relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio, to be more centrally located for the main focus of her career, which is now church music. The couple has three sons.
Her independantly released audio CD and DVD video "Let It Be…Mary's Story" is her current work coupled with her concert tour ministry.
Now, nearly 20 years later, she is ready for a reunion concert tour to her home country. To celebrate, she is rereleasing one of her favorite songs of all time: "Dvije Zvjezdice." Widely regarded as one of the best pop ballads in the history of ex-Yugo music, this is a song that resides deep in Tajči's heart and one that still reminds her why she loves to sing in her home country.
With coproduction efforts led by the powerhouse duo of Chris Gero of Yamaha Entertainment Group and GRAMMY Award winning Bryan Lenox, the true beauty of this nostalgic song has been preserved and heightened. This is the first of several singles that will be released in conjunction with her upcoming Ludujemo s Dusom Tour scheduled for October 2011.
Five cities, amazing music, great productions, a celebration of the past, and a look to the future - Tajči is going back to sing, dance, celebrate and rejoice with the country that will forever be her home.
