Looks like Malta is preparing its JESC contestant Federica Falzon to make history and win Junior Eurovision for Malta for a second time in a row as Federica (together with Gaia Cauchi) gave a concert last week with some other familiar faces and guests from Italy.
Following a guest appearance with Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja at his concert last month, Federica has taken centre stage as the star of her own concert, as part of the Ghaxaq Music Festival.
Organised in close collaboration with La Voix Academy, the concert featured the newly-formed La Voix Orchestra, which accompanied the singers for an hour and a half of live music. Federica sang duets with Marco Vito (Coach on The Voice of Italy), Vincenzo Carni (with whom she won ‘Ti Lascio una Canzone’) and Ludwig Galea (Eurovision 2004). Gaia Cauchi, Davinia (Malta Eurovision Finalist) and Shauna Vassallo also performed.
Gillian Attard — vocal coach to both Federica and Gaia Cauchi — has told wiwibloggs that Federica is busy spending the hot summer days preparing for JESC, along with Matt ‘Muxu’ Mercieca (pictured below) and composer Elton Zarb. Gillian sends her thanks to all the readers of wiwibloggs.com and the Maltese public for their constant support.
What do y’all think of these videos? Do you think Malta is in it to win it (again) on home turf? We have our opinion about it, but we want to hear yours! (You can also view Gaia belt out her 2013 winning song live at the same concert by clicking here)
