JESC 2016: Listen to "Parachute" by Christina MagrinWritten by Antoine Farrugia
“Parachute”, with music by Florent Boshnjaku, lyrics by Matt ‘Muxu’ Mercieca and Christina Magrin was officially released last night on Television Malta (TVM) following the 8 o’clock news bulletin and very soon after also on the official website of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
Apart from hearing the song for the very first time, the general public also had the opportunity to view the preview video produced by V Squared, in conjunction with the Public Broadcasting Services. Shot in just one take, it follows a similar pattern to Kiesza’s “Hideaway”, but the output itself could not be any different, sporting a fantastic backdrop of the Grand Harbour, and also bits and pieces of Valletta.
The song itself is a delightful number, featuring a tropical beat which lends itself well to the fast pace pop number. Christina’s signature vocals are ever so present in the song’s highlights, reaching high notes at the beginning, in the bridge and then also at the end. We would like to wish Christina Magrin all the very best of luck as she represents Malta in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016, and urge all of you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news.
