Halid Bešlić, a Bosnian legend and one of the most popular singers across the Balkans. Live with Aleksandar Stanković, "Nedeljom u dva", HRT

He has been performing since 1979. In March 2009 Halid suffered serious injuries when his car skidded off an icy road just outside Sarajevo. Despite surgeries in hospitals in Bosnia and abroad, he lost his right eye. Halid has subsequently recovered and is singing again.

After the car accident in the spring, touched by the messages of support from all over the former Yugoslavia, Halid Bešlić said: "What's happening to me now, in these critical moments, gives me hope that our part of the world can be dominated not only by hatred, but also by love..."

Halid Bešlić: legenda, jedan od najpopularnijih pjevača ne samo na području bivše Jugoslaviji, ali i kroz cijeli Balkan. Dirnut pažnjom sa svih strana posle teške saobraćajne nesreće Halid kaže: "Ovo sto mi se sada događa u ovim teškim trenucima zapravo daje mi nadu da na ovim našim prostorima ne vlada samo mrznja, nego ljubav."

U emisiji "Nedjeljom u dva" na HRT, 14.06.2009, on je govorio o u svom lečenju, o ratu i o posleratnoj Bosni i Herzegovini: Sastanemo se svi nacije i niko ne priča o ratu unutar Bosne. Svi šute, svi dalje to nose u sebi..."
