The winner of the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, Marija Serifovic, will be performing for the Independent Democratic Serbian Party (SDSS) in Zagreb today, right before the elections in Croatia on Sunday.

Marija Serifovic will perform at the pre-election gathering on Wednesday at the Globus in Zagreb. The concert will begin at 19.00h and it will last at least one hour. Vice president of SDSS Milorad Pupovac stated that some of the friends of SDSS helped with the negotiations with the singer, and Marija herself wasn't too hard to persuade.

A few more options considered for performers during the campaign were Momcilo Bajagic Bajaga (Awarded Best Rocker of the year award during Beovizija 2007) and Vlado Georgiev who was supposed to perform with Marija on stage. SDSS expects that, considering Marija Serifovic's popularity in Croatia, this concert will be attended by a great number of her fans.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
