Bobbie Singer (born Tina Schosser, 22 February 1981, Linz) is an Austrian singer, best known for her participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999.

Singer signed a record deal in 1996 at the age of 15, and released a single, "Egoistic", but this failed to chart. In 1999 she was chosen internally by broadcaster ORF, with the song "Reflection", as the Austrian representative for the 44th Eurovision Song Contest, which took place in Jerusalem on 29 May. On the night Singer gave an engaging performance and managed a tenth-place finish of 23 entries, coincidentally Austria's fourth tenth-place showing in ten years and the country's highest placing in the 1990s.[1] "Reflection" went on to become Singer's only entry on the Austrian chart, placing at #30.[2] In 2000, she recorded "Before I Die", the theme to horror film Seven Days to Live, but this was not a commercial success.

Singer withdrew from the professional music industry in the early 2000s, but remains active on a local level, performing rock/electronic music with an indie band in Vienna.
