PBS, the Maltese state broadcaster, has selected Gaia Cauchi for Junior Eurovision 2013—and boy can she sing. Gaia has a serious set of lungs on her and an impressive track record in international competition. She won her category at the San Remo Junior Music Festival in 2012. Bam!
Gaia’s first international gig came in 2011 when she appeared on the popular Italian TV show Ti Lascio Una Canzone. She took on Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” and left the audience shouting bellissimo!
She won the prestigious San Remo contest a year later when she was just nine years old. She sang “One Night Only”, which Jennifer Hudson previously sang in the hit film Dream Girls.
Gaia’s selection suggests that PBS is in it to win it. What do you think of Gaia?
