Anna Nejasmic has been singing since age 6 since watching Celine Dion belt out the song, “Power of Love”. Thus, while discovering her passion for music at a very young age, she was classically trained in voice since the age of 10 and began her singing career at the Croatian Children’s Festival in New York City. This festival has become a yearly, exciting tradition where she would express her own creativity and passion through song and share it with the audience. Anna was 12 years old when she won the festival in NY and thus was able to perform later at the famous Lisinski concert hall in Zagreb. Her song that year was so special to her because the author of the text, Robert Pilepic, was also the same author who wrote the famous song,“Morski Vuk”, for Oliver Dragojevic. This achievement instilled a drive to audition for Anna and she was one of the youngest to be accepted to the prestigious Boston University’s Summer Tangelwood Institute Program and the Manhattan School of Music.
Anna went on to record an American CD demo at the age of 15, and audition for American Idol in Chicago and did win the Croatian Idol contest in New York City and then competed in Toronto, Canada. Anna also then sang at many Croatian events in the community, with the Croatian band “More”, followed by alongside the Croatian music star, Drazen Zecic and even has sung at an event for Madam President Krabar-Kitarovic too.Show More
