In late 2008 she released live album Gospel u Komediji (Gospel in Komedija) that featured many popular gospel songs. In 2010 she won Porin (Croatian music award) for that same album in category for gospel music. Also the same year she released her fourth studio album Promjenjiva (Changeable) which confirmed her change in music direction to rock and pop.

Ivana was one of the most successful and most popular mentors in show Zvijezde Pjevaju (licensed after BBC's show ”Just the Two of Us”).

She took a break from show during fourth season and in fifth season she finished third with her partner Mario Petreković. Sixth season had change of concept, it was slightly shortened and instead of new celebrities producers decided to invite some of the most popular contestants from previous seasons and pair them with new mentors. Ivana was paired with Goran Navojec (who competed in season two with Marija Husar) and together they took first place, thus making her sole female and one of the only two mentors with two victories so far. All of her partners were professional actors, besides Mario Petreković who is a TV presenter and personality. http://www.ivanakindl.de/ http://www.ivana-kindl.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
