Tinka Milinovic Introduction

Tinka Milinovic is Bosnian born opera singer (Master of Music degree from University of Louisiana, 1998), international TV star, producer, model, actress, endorsement face, successful recording artist, hot chick with the balls... Name it - she's done it. Every guy wants to bone her, every girl wants to be her best friend.

She is sought after by many descendants of rich families and famous bachelors in Europe.

Tinka is this unique combination of things. Some things that may even seem like contradictions until you really know her and then it all makes perfect sense. She would never be described as a simple woman. She is wonderfully complex, has many facets, and each one tells a little part of who she is. She is an old soul with a childlike heart, one who can still see the world in the way a child does, full of wonder. As an old soul, she has a mature way of seeing the world, a sense of experience beyond her years. And when she walks into a room, everyone seems to notice, but to her it's nothing special, it's just who she is. She has this thing I call "an unassuming grace". When she and I are in a big room of people together, I can look at her from across the room and speak to her with only a glance and a smile, and she knows exactly what I'm saying to her. Tinka is a very capable woman, she is smart. I like a smart woman. And, while some men may find that intimidating, I find it sexy. She is passionate. And if honoring her is the form of spoiling, then yes, I wish to spoil her. Spoiling for me isn't buying affection, it's honoring that one soul that I would like to belong in my life. Tinka is very passionate, and not just in the context of her life, friendships or relationships, but she believes in things, and when she feels strongly about something, she isn't afraid to tell you...

Additionally, she further trained her voice with the Metropolitan Opera primadonna Martina Arroyo in New York.

After completing her training, she performed a great deal of roles in different operas, musicals, and opera scenes. Apart from these stage roles, Tinka also held solo concerts and has collaborated with Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and Sarajevo Philharmonics.

Tinka further went on to Eurovision Song Contest 2002 in Tallinn, Estonia, as a back-vocalist and dancer to a Bosnian representative that year.

In 2003, Tinka was invited and performed as the only artist from Bosnia and Herzegovina ever to take part in Eurovision Show Berlin 2003. In 2006 she was invited again and performed at the Eurovision Show, this time in Munich.

Tinka released her solo album T.I.N.K.A on Dec.28, 2006. Even before her album was officially released, Tinka has sold over 6,000 copies to fans who registered earlier.

Tinka, due to her charming sincerity, alluring wits, and remarkable sex appeal, is also known for her "natural genetic celebrity" status. So far, she has been the only highly educated artist in Bosnia-Herzegovina with Masters Degree in Music (Opera), and the only female artist who hasn't failed yet to break all barriers and stereotypes that the title of opera singer brings with it.

Tinka is rumoured to be the reason why French President Sarkozy is separating from his wife.
