Kraljice Srca Moga
by Saban Saulic
Saban Saulic (1951 to 2019) was a Serbian 'folk-pop' singer. Saban Saulic was born on September 6th 1951 in Sabac, Serbia, then a part of Yugoslavia but now independent. (His parents were, however, of Bosniak descent themselves.) Neither of his parents had full-time jobs - just to make money, his father sold lottery tickets and his mother sold children's toys at fetes. They spent a lot of their time travelling and supposedly looking for work, leaving their son primarily in the care of his older sister. Although he showed an early fanatical interest in football, it was his uncle who first noticed his latent musical talent. One day in the mid-1960s, his uncle asked him to sing at their local 'kafana', and his interpretation of a well-known song so impressed the locals it became the springboard for a five decade long musical career. His first big break came in 1969 when he recorded his debut song "Dajte Mi Utjehu" - it became an instant hit and led to him moving to Belgrade to continue his progression in professional music. By the mid-1970s, he had firmly become a household name and his songs were much requested. Between 2013 and 2016, he was a judge on the reality singing talent show "Zvezde Granda". He and his wife Gordana had one son and two daughters together, with one of the girls, Ilda, going on to follow her father into professional music. While being driven to the airport on his way home from a concert in Bielefeld, Germany, a drunk and unlicensed driver collided with the people carrier Saban Saulic was travelling in. This happened on the autobahn between Bielefeld and Gutersloh on February 17th 2019, with occupants of both vehicles receiving extremely serious injuries. He was pronounced dead at hospital (along with one other), and was 67 years old. [ Translated from: ]

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
