Đorđe Marjanović (Serbian Cyrillic: Ђорђе Марјановић; 30 October 1931 – 15 May 2021) was a Serbian and Yugoslav singer.

Marjanović began his career in the mid-1950s. During the 1960s he recorded a large number of hit songs and became the first superstar of the Yugoslav popular music.[1]

In 1990, he suffered a stroke on stage, from which he partially recovered, but decided to retire.

He died on 15 May 2021, aged 89, in Belgrade from problems caused by COVID-19.[2][3]
