Tajči Cameron (/ˈti/; Croatian pronunciation: [tǎjtʃi]; born Tatjana Matejaš, pronounced [tǎtjana mǎtejaʃ], on 1 July 1970 in Zagreb) is a Croatian singer; she has since taken up citizenship and residence in the United States.

Career[edit]

As a pop star in the former Yugoslavia in the late 1980s and early 1990s, she won the national selection of RTV Zagreb, SR Croatia and represented Yugoslavia at the Eurovision Song Contest 1990. The contest was held at Zagreb and she sang the song Hajde da ludujemo (Let's go crazy!). Her Yugoslav music career was cut short by the breakup of Yugoslavia and subsequent war.

She left her homeland in 1992 and pursued a career in stage musicals. She ended up in the United States, seeking television and recording work in the Los Angeles area. There she met Matthew Cameron, whom she married in 2000. She ended up performing music in Roman Catholic churches while auditioning for roles, some of which she turned down because they required nudity.

They eventually relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio, which was a more central location for her new focus in church music.

Her independently released audio CD Need A Break is her latest work.

She has also written a musical[1] which is scheduled to debut at the Jarson-Kaplan Theatre in Cincinnati in February 2010. She is sister of Croatian-American actress and singer Sanya Mateyas. Tajči is mother of three sons.
