JESC 2016: Christina Delivers in 1st RehearsalWritten by Emil Calleja Bayliss
With the first day of rehearsals coming to a close, Christina Magrin took to the stage at the Mediterranean Conference Centre to perform her colourful number ‘Parachute’, an original song which she co-wrote the lyrics with Matt ‘Muxu’ Mercieca set to the music of Florent Boshnjaku.
It comes as no surprise that mouths gasped at listening to Christina’s vocal range, despite very much knowing that these first rehearsals are done in order to get the technical details sorted as quickly as possible. That said, the five dancers accompanying Christina already have an idea of their stage positioning and most likely, everything will look slick and polished by Thursday.
There’s a lot of positive energy on stage, something that Malta is always known for having, and with that note, there’s no reason to believe why the tiny nation state, the smallest competing country, can’t repeat the success of recent years.
