Janice Mangion, one of Malta’s leading vocalists, a solo singer in her own right, and also a member of the Animae Gospel Choir has recently launched her debut single, an r’n’b soul ballad with a pulsing beat entitled “Burnin”, composed by Elton Zarb and penned by Emil Calleja Bayliss.

In the initial stages of the creative process, Janice sought a meaningful message, one which helps those who find themselves in moments of despair, thinking that their faith has abandoned them completely. This, accompanied by her soulful voice creates an exceptionally beautiful song. Aiding in the recorded was the talented Angela Spiteri who provided a strong backing vocal.

“Burnin”, which is available from streaming and purchase on all major digital platforms has been released through CAP Sounds, a record label based in Germany with full distribution handled by Universal Music Germany. Manfred Holz of the aforementioned company stated ‘Janice has an incredible vocal range which we are proud to represent, and we believe that “Burnin” showcases her talent in the best possible way’. 

In support of the single, which was officially released on Friday 23rd September, Janice Mangion and her team, led by Marc Calleja Bayliss of Ironic PR & Artist Management thought it best to work on a lyric video, commissioning visionaries Angie and Duane Laus, with the result officially made public on Thursday 29th September.

You can steam or purchase the song, or else view the lyric video through either Janice Mangion’s Official Facebook or Twitter pages or else on: http://janicemangion.believeband.com.

Janice Mangion would like to thank everyone who has supported the release of this song from day one, and would like to thank her team of sponsors, and also the media outlets who have been in touch to help in any way. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the local music scene.

Fabrizio Faniello, the male singer/songwriter who has twice been chosen to represent Malta in Europe’s most favourite music competition, was one of the special guests on the television programme ‘Xarabank’, in a follow-up interview to the one which aired on Friday 13th. Clearly emotional, Fabrizio spoke about the various difficulties that he had to encounter, noting that such experiences have been life-changing and eye-opening.

It is no secret that those who abuse of drugs or alcohol have had their lives disheveled, and therefore ‘Xarabank’ will be raising funds in support of the voluntary organisation ‘Caritas’ in a couple of weeks. In light of this development, Fabrizio Faniello has lent his distinct vocals to “Fit-Tarf tat-Triq”, an original song in Maltese which he co-composed with Noel Borg and Philip Vella, with lyrics by Peppi Azzopardi. The song has also been made available on all legal platforms like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify with all proceeds set to be added up to the final tally of all funds collected. As a matter of fact, all those involved in the making of the song did it at no cost, something which is noble and honourable.

Since his comeback in 2011, with the aforementioned "No Surrender" co-written by Johan Stentorp and Johan Bejerholm, Fabrizio has gone onto win the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza with the song "Aħfirli Jekk Trid" composed by Dominic and penned by Rita Pace.

Fans of the Eurovision Song Contest will definitely know that the eastern country has been a member of the elite top ten when it comes to the competition since their debut entry back in the 2008 edition, which in turn remains to this day, their worst result, achieving eighth place with a total of 132 points.
