Macedonia Marks 9 Years Since Tragic Death of Singer Tose Proeski

Macedonia and the Balkans are remembering Sunday singer Tose Proeski, who tragically died in car crash near Nova Gradiska nine years ago, at the age of 26.


On October 5, Tose's fans organised the annual event "Be Part of Tose's Starry Sky" thus marking the anniversary since his last concert.

Tose was born on 25 January 1981 in Macedonia. His first stage appearance was in 1993, when he sang at a children's festival. His successful career started in 1996, when he took part in a teenage music festival. His first album was released in 1999 in Macedonian, with his first single "Tvoite baknezi na moite beli kosuli" reaching number one on the charts.

Tose took part and won numerous festivals in Macedonia and the other former Yugoslav countries, and was considered a Balkan Superstar. He won the first ever edition of Beovizija in 2003, which later became Serbia's national Eurovision contest, he won the very popular Radio Festival in Croatia, and he was also given the honor to represent his home country in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul.

During his career he released seven albums, all of which achieved great success throughout the Balkans. He also recorded an album in English before his death in 2007, but the album was released in 2009.
