As Editor-In-Chief of escflashmalta.com, I would like all of our readers an extremely Happy New Year and sincerely hope that it would prove more satisfactory than the one preceding it. In terms of music, it is going to be an extremely difficult year to follow up with Malta achieving success both at the senior and the junior level of the Eurovision Song Contest with Gianluca and his entry Tomorrow co-written by Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat finishing in eighth place, the best result since 2005 and Gaia Cauchi and her song The Start co-written with Elton Zarb, Matt Mercieca and Gillian Attard finishing on top of the leader board giving the nation their first ever success in an event organised by the European Broadcasting Union.
In recent days, we have been in touch with Gillian Attard, in hope of getting extremely special greetings for the brand new year, and indeed, being so courteous and kind, she gave us the go ahead and made sure that a couple of videos are recorded as the new year dawns on both Malta and the rest of the world. All the students who have been selected are coached by Gillian Attard, otherwise known as Miss G at the illustrious La Voix Academy whose track record with children in competitions is beyond amazing. It is no secret that the institution is run with a professional attitude and that several teachers should follow such an astonishing example as is being set forth by Gillian. Kicking off the special video messages is Gaia Cauchi.
Gaia Cauchi, winner of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2013, and also the illustrious Sanremo Junior a couple of months back decided to sing a special rendition of Happy New Year originally by Abba, and then covered by the likes of Niamh Kavanagh, Chiara, Paula and Ovi during the Romanian national selection. The second video is that of Shauna Vassallo, an upcoming artist who had the opportunity to perform on a regular basis on the programm; Io Canto which airs on Canale 5. This was the same show which had given us the likes of Danica Muscat, a two time qualifier of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.
The final video is that of the wonderful Veronica Rotin, another starlet of the La Voix Academy who had been given the opportunity to perform on Io Canto, and also managed to get through to the final stage of the competition, something which no other Maltese had ever done. It is not easy achieving success on an international level, but with sheer class and talent, anything is possible. Once more, on behalf of the editorial board, and also EXOR Group, proud sponsors of escflashmalta.com, we would like to wish you a very Happy New Year filled with everything your heart desires.
