Biography

He finished elementary school in Skopje and expressed his interests in music at an early age. He started playing drums at the age of 3 and at the age of 7, he participated at numerous music festivals for children. He represented Macedonia at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev, finishing 17th with the song "Make My Day". He won second place at Ohrid Fest with the song "Rano mi e da se vrzam". The song was ranked as the 'Most Popular Song of the Year 2002' in the Republic of Macedonia. At the 2002 Budva festival in Serbia and Montenegro, he won the prize awarded by journalists and critics. He was voted as the 'Discovery of the Year 2002' in the country, winning an album contract with BKSound. He was also voted 'Discovery of the Year 2002' in the Republic of Macedonia. He won the Interpretation Award at Mak fest for the song "Harem". He was 'Singer of the Year 2004' in Macedonia and also won 'Duet of the Year'. He has been invited to appear on one of Turkey’s most popular TV shows. In Turkey he is known as ‘Macedonian Tarkan’. Vučić has been selected as an exclusive star for City Records.[1]

To date, Martin has released two albums, Rano Mi E Da Se Vrzam (It's Too Early To Get Tied Down) and Muza (Muse). The title song "Muza" was composed by Macedonian mega star Toše Proeski and the album also included a duet with Croatian star Danijela Martinović. Vučić recently promoted a Serbian version of "Muza", titled "Put Do Istine" ("Road To The Truth"). During the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest, Vučić was chosen to read out the Macedonian televotes to Greece and sang a song in Greek — "Maria Me Ta Kitrina" to Maria Menounos.
