Malta: Remarkable Results in FYR Macedonia

Shauna Vassallo, Christina Magrin, Maxine Pace, Federica Falzon, and Gaia Cauchi are all success stories to emerge from La Voix Academy, a school for aspiring vocalists to hone their talent under the masterful gaze of singer/songwriter Gillian Attard. It seems that triumphant stories will continue to inspire for children to reach their dreams as a troupe of vocalists will be returning from the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia with their heads help up high, considering that they swooped the top places in every category.

Rachel Lowell & Jean Claude Azzopardi placed 2nd in their category, whilst Clarissa Cauchi placed 3rd in her category apart from being honoured with a diploma. All eyes were on Veronica Rotin, the artist who made it through to the finals of Io Canto during this past year, and has recently signed a management contract with Ironic PR & Artist Management, the same company which takes care of Malta Eurovision Song Contest participants; Danica Muscat and Davinia

Not only did she finish 1st in her category, but she was also crowned Grand Prix Winner hence giving Malta success all around with the four artists impressing the panel of professional judges. The “Lake Pearls” competition was brought to the attention of aspiring local vocalists thanks to Erseb Productions, who have organised several competitions in search of wonderful talent. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.

KKI 2013: Final Line-Up Revealed This Evening

Media.Link Communications in collaboration with escflashmalta.com is proud to present the ninth week of the programme Indifest hosted by Mark Azzopardi and Christine Haber through NET Television on Thursday evening as from 20:30 CET onwards. In support of this years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, the weekly programme seeks to promote the artists competing in one of three competitions which promote the local language. Whether newcomers or somewhat established, their place is still amongst the general elite. The public has the opportunity to select which three entries they would like to qualify from the 'teenage category' portion of the competition as well selecting their top favourite within the 'established category' which is offered as a separate award in order to make sure that talent is well appreciated.

All of the eight (8) entries competing in this years' teenage category will be competing for the votes of the judges this evening as a set of professional experts will be on hand within the studio to assess the performances by the respective participants. It is important to denote that all of the artists have already performed within Indifest this season in order to present their entries to the public who have also been voting. 40% of the final result which is set to be revealed this evening will have been decided by them with the other 60% decided by the expert panel. Therefore, people should continue to vote for their most favourite entries throughout the course of the programme in order to aid their preferred entry. Ultimately, three will garner the opportunity to perform 'live' during the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza which is taking place on the 19th September on The Granaries in Floriana.

Italy: Four Vocalists to represent Malta

At a relatively young age, individuals are prone to select what they would like to carry out within their respective lifetime and becoming a vocal artist is somewhat an acquired taste. Vocal tutors with certification to show are existent in the country and one of them is surely Gillian Attard who just happens to be the main vocalist behind some of the most iconic tracks in Maltese including; Xi Darba Min Jaf and Quddiem L-Inkwatru tal-Madonna. Her latest foray into the industry is through La Voix Academy which currently houses some of the most up and coming stars that the nation has including Gaia Cauchi, winner of Sanremo Junior 2012 as well as recipient of the International Achievement Award during the 2013 Malta Music Awards.

For the second consecutive year, Malta will be taking part in Sanremo Junior and will be hoping to build on the success of the victory achieved last year. As a matter of fact, an internal jury selected four students to take on the role as representatives, and they all come from the La Voix Academy headed by Gillian Attard who is also known as Miss G. Once more, female representation is seemingly key because the chosen artists, all of which have varying ages are; Naomi Cutajar, Ilenia Camilleri, Miriana Conte and Clarissa Cauchi. During the competition in which they will be competing against a number of young artists from all across the world, they will be directed by Maestro Paul Abela and Miss Gillian Attard. The notable composer does not require any introduction having written Malta's entries for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1991, 1996 and 2001 whilst also conducting the orchestra in 1992, respectively. All of the performances in Italy will take place in the prestigious Teatro Ariston and accompanied by a live orchestra. The editorial board of escflashmalta.com would like to wish all of the participants the very best of luck in their respective journey.
