Music career

Jelena started her way to stardom at the young age of 8 when she won the children's song contest "Šarenijada" in Kragujevac. She joined a folklore group in Kragujevac called Kud Abrasevic that toured all over Europe winning many awards for their dance as well as Jelena winning many awards with her vocals. She was one of the main vocalist for the folklore group. This was her first public performance and with her vocal abilities captivated a very large amount of people. She performed to a much larger audience in 1994 at the Yugoslav Children's festival, held that year in Kragujevac when she won.[2]

From then she performed at various international festivals such as the Czech Republic, Belarus and Bulgaria where she won various awards. She competed and won in an Idol style show in 2002 called "3K dur" aired on RTS3.

Jelena Tomašević at Beovizija 2005

In 2005 she started a professional involvement with popular Serbian singer Željko Joksimović. He composed the song Jutro for her with which she competed at Beovizija, the Serbian selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Ultimately she missed out in controversial fashion at the overall Serbia and Montenegro final (Evropesma), when all four Montenegrin jurors overlooked it in distributing their points. No Name, qualifier from Montenegro's pre-selection, instead represented Serbia & Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, placing 7th. This was to be the country's last ever appearance in the contest as in 2006, both peacefully decided to go their separate ways and became independent countries.

In 2007 record label company Minocard signed her up and in 2008 her debut album has been released. Song Košava, from that album, was presented in the RTS show Beogradska Hronika in late March 2008. The video to the song was filmed in a Belgrade villa built in 1907 and will be the main song off the album.[3]

In 2008, Željko Joksimović composed Jelena a song called Oro for Beovizija 2008. She won the contest and represented Serbia in Eurovision Song Contest held in Belgrad in May.

In her career she also guest starred in the movie Ivkova slava (2006) for which she also sang, made a guest appearance on Joksimović's album (2005) and opened the EuroBasket 2005 in Belgrade.

Personal life

Jelena graduated high school in Kragujevac in 2002. That same year she started studying at the University of Kragujevac at the faculty for English language. She has put her studies on hold but will graduate in 2009. She is from the same town as 2007 Eurovision Winner, Marija Šerifović.
