Biography

Jelena Karleusa was born on 17 august 1978 in Belgrade,Serbia. She is married to Dusko Tosic. They have two daughters. She rose to prominence in the mid-1990s as a turbo-folk singer, upon her debut album Ogledalce, but as her career progressed she tried escape that image. During the following decades she saw commercial success with her pop crossover attempts JK Revolution and Diva. These releases were followed by two Belgrade concerts: All About Diva and Viva la Diva Show; before 15,000 and 40,000 people, respectively. She has also served as a judge and mentor on the televised singing contest Zvezde Granda since 2015. German magazine Focus referred to her as the Madonna of the Balkans. Having sold over million records, while also being one of the highest payed regional performers, Jelena Karleuša is regarded as one of the most popular Serbian musicians.
