Who is North Macedonia’s Eurovision 2019 entry Tamara Todevska?

Todevska was born in North Macedonia to some seriously musical parents – her dad is a professor in a music school and her mum an opera singer. After singing from a young age, she was then drawn into Eurovision.

Firstly, she appeared as a backing singer for the North Macedonian act Tose Proeski in 2004, finishing 14th. Todevska then just missed out on representing North Macedonia by herself at the 2007 contest, coming second in her national final.
