Claudia Beni (born 30 May 1986) is a Croatian pop singer.

At the time when she first participated in Dora, the national finals for the Eurovision Song Contest,[1][2] Claudia was only 12, but she was already an experienced band singer having performed all over Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia and Montenegro with the Teens - formerly known as Mići rokeri (Little Rockers).

After having enjoyed sales of almost 30,000 (this number cannot be confirmed as there is no system in Croatia to measure exact album sales, most figures are provided by record companies, therefore, there cannot be considered to be accurate) for three Teen albums and after receiving the 2002 Porin prize, Claudia broke away from the Teens. Her first 12-song solo album “Claudia” was released just before the summer of 2002. The singles “Tako hrabar da me ostaviš” (Brave Enough To Leave Me) (one of the songs in the Best New Album awarded at the Split Festival 2001), “Ili ona ili ja” (It’s Her or Me) (Zagrebfest 2001), and “Led” (Ice) (HRF 2002) put Claudia at the top of the charts (once again, there are no accurate means to measure single sales in Croatia, and such figures on which charts are based are known to be manipulated).

In 2003, Claudia represented Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, singing "Više nisam tvoja".

Claudia has also worked together with another member of the Croatian pop scene, Ivana Banfić, singing the song “Hrvatice vas vole” (Croatian Women Love You), dedicated to the national football team during the World Championship in Japan which enjoyed no success.
