Tatiana, an international music sensation and former Croatian popstar, will perform “Emmanuel – The Story of Christmas” in Christendom College’s St. Lawrence Commons on Thursday, December 4 at 8:00 p.m.
Tatiana started her performing career when she was four years old. As a child she was involved with every Children’s Festival and TV show that was produced in her native Croatia. Educated in music at the Croatian Music Conservatory and trained in acting at the Zagreb Youth Theater, Tatiana grew into a true professional who at the age of nineteen accomplished success and fame unprecedented in former Yugoslavia. Her albums reached platinum sales and in less than a year she became the most popular and influential performing artist in her country. Tatiana’s concerts were events of its own kind – with tens of thousands of screaming fans.
During the war in Croatia, Tatiana performed with Croatian Art Forces in efforts to raise funds for wounded people and refugees. She spent her days off in hospitals, orphanages or on the front lines – all in an effort to make the sufferings a little easier with her gift of music. In 1992, at the end of the first six months of the war, Tatiana decided to move to the United States. She had hoped to raise awareness of what was really going on in her country through music, faith and love for all people.
In New York, Tatiana graduated from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, performed at Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, Cabaret clubs “Eighty Eights,” “Divine Lounge Club,” theaters and other venues. She also appeared in several TV shows as a guest performer.
Today Tatiana lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Christendom College graduate Matthew Cameron ’93, and two children.
Beautifully arranged, “Emmanuel – The Story of Christmas” is the story of Jesus’ birth told through a prayerful compilation of Scripture, treasured carols, Hebrew and Gregorian chant, and original music. The concert is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.
