France: Anggun Duets With Claudia Faniello on PureWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
This year has been one of those years when the runner-up at this years' Malta Eurovision Song Contest continued to garner more acclaim than the actual winner despite the high dose of support that Kurt Calleja and his team have been receiving in the past couple of weeks. In second place was none other than Claudia Faniello, an experience artist who first emerged on the scene in the Malta Song for Europe back in 2006 and she has never looked back securing popularity, a debut album and also two runner-up finishes at the esteemed music competition whilst also supporting some of the biggest acts in the industry. In recent days, French superstar Anggun recorded a duet of her entry, Echo (You & I) for the Eurovision Song Contest with Claudia within a bi-lingual concept but they have joined forces once more on another track.
The track that they have worked on together is none other than Pure composed by Philip Vella, penned by Gerard James Borg and produced by Sean Vella. The technique of the vocals is stunning and the way that they intertwine together is just brilliant. Pure was the runner-up entry in this years' Malta Eurovision Song Contest and it seems that should she have been chosen, we would have got very high marks from the French Jury noting the fact that even Bruno Berberes, the Head of Delegation awarded her the maximum marks in Malta saying that it is pure beauty in all its entirety. Following the competition, Pure went onto a foray on iTunes, by climbing up to number #1 in just a couple of hours and staying there for a month, something which Kurt Calleja is yet to accomplish as his status at the top did not last that long unfortunately. You can hear the duet below in a Youtube video prepared for the occasion.
