Josie

Croatia has a proud Junior Eurovision tradition, winning the first event in 2003. Can Josie repeat that 11 years later?

Fourteen year old Josie – full nameJosephine Ida Zec – was born in the US before moving back to Croatia with her parents as a two month old baby.

Her brother Darian was born three years later and by then Josie was already involved in music, dance and acting lessons while still in kindergarten. These interests continued, with six years of violin lessons, being selected for the ‘Novisgradsko Proljece’ drama program and song writing (in Croatian and English) occupying her free time.

Technology and creativity are also areas that fascinate Josie. In 2012 she won third prize at the StartUp weekend in Zagreb with her ‘Animingles’ iPhone app. A book was published soon after and promoted at the Interliber book fair in 2013 and is available in bookshops throughout Croatia. Josie also attended her first Coding Conference this summer where she pitched her idea for a teen girl coding series called the ‘Pyxie Dust Project.’

Since starting her new school in 7th grade last year, she joined the Zvjezdice Choir, performing at Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall and HNK/Croatian National Theatre, as well as in a duet with the opera legend Ivanka Boljkovac at the 25th Christmas Concert in Zagreb.

She has also launched her own YouTube channel as her summer vacation project which features her own writing, acting, directing and editing of video shorts on a variety of themes.

Lyrics of Game over

GAME OVER

Game game over no no restart
Više nema povratka
Tebi sve je samo igra al'
Znaj-aj-aj moj svijet je sad
Slow motion

verse:
Bilo je ljeto
Igrao si ''8 Pool''
Trikove si pokazao mi
I bio si baš cool

verse:
A kad sam došla na red
Smijao si se
Ne znaš kako to je bed
Sve si uništio

chorus:
Game game over no no restart
Više nema povratka
Tebi sve je samo igra al'
Znaj-aj-aj moj svijet je sad
Slow
Game game over no no restart
Više nema povratka
Tebi sve je samo igra al'
Znaj-aj-aj moj svijet je sad
Slow motion

verse:
Pobijedili nismo
Za sve je prekasno
Jer ti samo muljaš
sad je sasvim jasno

chorus:
Game game over no no restart
Više nema povratka
Tebi sve je samo igra al'
Znaj-aj-aj moj svijet je sad
Slow
Game game over no no restart
Više nema povratka
Tebi sve je samo igra al'
Znaj-aj-aj moj svijet je sad
Slow
Game game over no no restart
You can' t erase what You' ve done
You play the game just for fun
And I can see it all in Slow

Game game over
GAME OVER

Game game over no no restart
You can’t erase what you’ve done
You play the game just for fun
And I can see it all in
Slow motion

Verse:
It was summer
You played „8 Polo“
You showed me tricks
You were cool

Verse:
And when it was my turn
You laughed
It was so bad
You destroyed all

Chorus:
Game game over no no restart
You can’t erase what you’ve done
You play the game just for fun
And I can see it all in
Slow motion
Game game over no no restart
You can’t erase what you’ve done
You play the game just for fun
And I can see it all in
Slow motion

Verse:
We are the winners
It’s all too late
You’re just lying
It’s all clear now

Chorus:
Game game over no no restart
You can’t erase what you’ve done
You play the game just for fun
And I can see it all in
Slow motion
Game game over no no restart
You can’t erase what you’ve done
You play the game just for fun
And I can see it all in Slow

Game game over
