Marija Šerifović was born on 14 November 1984 in Kragujevac in central Serbia. Her father, Rajko Šerifović, was a drummer, and her mother, Verica Šerifović, is a popular folk singer. She comes from a mixed marriage of a Muslim/Orthodox father and an Orthodox mother. When Verica was nine months pregnant with Marija, her husband left her for another woman with whom he had a son, Danijel, who is also a singer and a vocal coach. Šerifović described her father as an abusive alcoholic who would regularly beat her mother.
Šerifović released her debut album Naj, Najbolja (The Very, Very Best) in 2003 under City Records. The following year she won at the Budva Music Festival with 'Bol do ludila' (Pain until Insanity). She also claimed victory at the Radio Festival in 2005 and released her sophomore record Bez Ljubavi (Without Love) in 2006. A year later she held her first concert in Sava Centar, Belgrade.
Šerifović identifies as lesbian. The Guardian identified her as an open lesbian in 2007. The newspaper's music critic, Germaine Greer, argued that it was her "outsider" status as both Romani and lesbian that helped her create her deeply moving Eurovision-winning performance in 2007.
In 2008, Šerifović released her third album titled Nisam anđeo (I'm not an angel), and a year later her fourth Anđeo (Angel). In May 2010, she held a concert in the Belgrade Arena. Her documentary series, Confession, was broadcast on Prva TV in 2013, in which she talked about her difficult childhood, rose to fame and coming out as a lesbian. In 2014 she released her fifth record, Hrabro (Bravely).
In July 2015, Šerifović released single "Pametna i luda" (Smart and Crazy). In September, she became a judge on the televised singing competition Zvezde Granda alongside Jelena Karleuša. While in October, Šerifović also saw success with "Sama i nervozna" (Alone and Nervous).
In the search for the newly formed independent Serbia's entry for 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, Šerifović with 'Molitva' (Prayer) was chosen winner according to the jury and the public vote. On 10 May, she performed fifteenth, placing first with 298 points. Two days after, she claimed victory with 268 points, becoming Serbia's first and to date only Eurovision winner. Returning home, she was greeted by more than 70,000 people in front of the Civic Assembly of Belgrade. She also held a concert in her home town in front of 60,000 co-citizens. The following year, Serbia hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in Belgrade, where Šerifović performed her winning song and handed over the title to Dima Bilan from Russia. She was also in the jury to choose the Irish entry for Eurovision Song Contest 2008 and Swedish for Eurovision Song Contest 2009. 'Molitva' was included in the list of the 10 best Eurovision winners according to the SBS in 2016 and to The Independent in 2019, while The Eurovision Times, a fan blog, ranked it as the third best Eurovision song of all time.
