Polish pop vocalist Justyna Steczkowska was born on August 2, 1972, into a musically active and rich family.
Learning violin as her first instrument, Justyna got her first taste of performance playing with her family band, which earned her valuable experience and led to her steely determination to make a life out of music. She studied music throughout secondary school and pursued an education in music for the few semesters she spent at university. Justyna took her first steps toward fame by entering the important Polish Szansa na Sukces song contest in 1994. Singing the song "Buenos Aires," Justyna took first place. Her victory was followed by the release of her debut single, "Moja Intymnosc." Her Szansa na Sukces win earned her the chance to represent Poland in 1995 at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin, sharing the stage with some of Europe's finest up-and-coming talent. Her 1996 single "Sama" whet audience appetites for her debut record, Dziewczyna Szamana (Shaman's Girl). Her follow-up release, Naga (Naked), emerged only a year later in 1997. Steczkowska made her debut as an actress in 1999 in the film Na Koniec Swiata (At the End of the World), followed by the movie's original soundtrack. As her discography grew over the course of the next feat years, including the Christmas album Koledy I Pastoralki (2000), Moja Intynmosc (2003), and the hugely popular Femme Fatale (2004), so did her popularity. Justyna Steczkowska has earned a reputation as a Polish sex symbol, leading songwriter, and media personality. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez, Rovi
