Predrag Gojković Cune (Serbian Cyrillic: Предраг Гојковић Цуне; 6 November 1932 – 21 July 2017) was a Serbian vocalist and recording artist with a career spanning six decades.[1]

Biography[edit]

In 1939, he enrolled in primary school and subsequently enrolled in the 8th Men's Gymnasium in Belgrade, alongside actors Velimir Bata Živojinović and Danilo Bata Stojković. After high school, he attended the Trade Academy — which he never finished due to his love for singing.[2]

Gojković performed in the late 1950s with Silvana Armenulić, accompanied by an orchestra.[3] The two recorded an LP, released on 6 July 1973. The album featured two songs: "Gdje si da si moj golube" and "Kad u jesen lišće žuti". Gojković was awarded the Order of Merits for the People by the President of Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito.[citation needed]

By the early 2010s, Gojković began scaling back his performing schedule. In July 2010 he said: "performance anxiety is something I still have in abundance. I rarely sing and since the voice needs constant training, I'm simply not able to maintain the level that the audience is used to from me. Anxiety affects the quality of your voice, but my experience helps me overcome it".[4] In November 2011, he added: "I want to calm down. I wish for my career to simply fade out without much spectacle".[4]

On his 83rd birthday, he received RTS's "Golden Microphone" for "extraordinary contributions in the field of Serbia's culture with a brilliant talent spanning over six decades."[5]

Death[edit]

Gojković died on 21 July 2017, at age 84, in Belgrade.[2] Many artists from all over the former Yugoslavia publicly gave condolences to the family and expressed grief over his death.[6] The Minister of Culture of Serbia Vladan Vukosavljević expressed his grief via telegram to Predrag's family.[7]

Gojković is interred in the Alley of Distinguished Citizens in the Belgrade New Cemetery.[8]
