Ništa LičnoThe band Ništa Lično (Nothing Personal) was formed only a few months ago, even though its members have known each other for quite some time having taken part in numerous children's festivals as solo performers.
Saša, the author of the music and co-author of the lyrics for the song Onaj Pravi (The Right One) practically had a finished song that he premiered to his father. Quite pleased with what he heard, his dad sent the recording to a friend of his - Una's father in Zrenjanin.
When Una heard the song she immediately sang it to her childhood friend Karolina. Very much enthused Karolina called up her friend Anica from Užice, who happened to be in the company of her brother Petar on the occasion. They were all so thrilled! Anica added some "female subtlety" to Saša's lyrics, and sent them back to him right away.
Saša reacted by inviting the entire team for a meeting in Belgrade. This brought the spontaneous idea of forming a band, because they had personally seen nothing similar before in Serbia. There came up the issue of choosing a name. They thought about it long and hard. After a while, Saša said: "What do you say we call ourselves - Nothing Personal?“
They all like to point out they became involved in the whole project for the sake of meeting more frequently and having loads of fun, making the time for it between their numerous obligations at school.
They debuted at the Serbian selection for the representative at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and they won outright. They can hardly wait to go to Ukraine and make many new friends. Singing and friendship do not have boundaries...
Aleksandar Graić – composer and co-author of the lyrics
Aleksandar Graić was born in Belgrade on the 8th of July 1995, in a family of professional musicians. He was a little rascal and before going to school he despised food and all that had anything to do with eating. In time he has grown to like eating. Currently, he is in a phase of adoring it, Italian cuisine in particular!
At school he is always attentive, considerate and responsible. He has taken part in a number of quiz competitions and has won many awards. He is also attending private guitar lessons and has torn a few guitar strings along the way...
For the past three years he has been attending acting classes. By now, he has appeared in two TV clips. He adores sports, and at his leisure time he plays tennis.
He is very much attached to his computer. If he's not on Facebook, then it's YouTube he's surfing. His favorite video games are the ones featuring sports, primarily tennis, soccer and American wrestling.
He adores listening to music - at high volume, naturally. Among the older performers his favorites are Led Zeppelin and Survival, and among the newer ones Robbie Williams and Katy Perry. He is a great fan of musical festivals and is a goldmine of diverse pieces of information about them.
He likes reading and all he can lay his hands on, for that matter.
He composed his first song at the age of six, and it was entitled The Sun Setting Beyond the Roof. From that moment on, he hasn't stopped writing about all sorts of thing including bunnies, teddy bears, chocolate covered corn flakes and even his school.
