Gordana Marinković (Serbian Cyrillic: Гордана Маринковић, née Tržan), known as Goca Tržan (Гоца Тржан, pronounced [ɡǒːtsa tr̩̂ʒan]) is a popular Serbian singer. She was born on July 8, 1974, in Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia). She was raised in the Novi Beograd municipality, and lived there until her 18th birthday.

Musical background[edit]

Her music is typically pop with some Balkan ethnological influences. In 2001, she collaborated with Macedonian singer Toše Proeski to record the track 1,200 milja which became an instant hit in the Serbian language. On the actual Želim da se promenim album, the track appears twice; it is also the final track in which the duo perform the song in the Macedonian language (1,200 mili).

Tržan famously held a concert to which one fanatic male admirer purchased every ticket making him the only spectator; this was something unknown to her until she arrived on stage somewhat curious as to why the arena was (virtually) empty. She is also a singer of the Serbian pop group Tap 011.

Family life[edit]

She was the first child of parents Rosa and Anton. Her father is Slovene, explaining the surname Tržan. She has a younger brother, Andrej, who was born in 1977. On 27 January 2007, Tržan married Ivan Marinković. Upon marriage, she took the name Marinković, but continued to perform under her former name in relation to her music. On May 23, 2007, she gave birth to a girl Lena. Goca and Ivan got divorced in 2011. She loves long walks, fishing, animals, and extreme sports. She is born as brunette, but has become blonde at more times (at first time in 1997).
