Malta: Rachel Fabri Joins British Group

It is always quite pleasant to hear that Maltese talent is doing well abroad and it is even better to see the local media giving exposure to such achievements. In recent days, both the Public Broadcasting Services and the Times of Malta announced that former Malta Song for Europe and Sfida participant, Rachel Fabri has become part of the British Classical Crossover group "All Angels" which in turn, have already been successful within the last couple of years.

Rachel Fabri's big break in the Maltese music scene came when along with Romina Mamo and Neville Refalo; they reached the final of the 2005 edition of the Malta Song for Europe with the song "We Can Do Better" written and composed by Carm Fenech. Since then though, she moved to the United Kingdom, where following a year of studying, she auditioned for musicals within the West End and despite being close on a number of occasions, she never made it. Alas, she had already decided to come back to Malta for a break from this lifestyle, when she decided to give her career there one last shot, auditioning for a group of which she was already a fan of namely "All Angels".

Rachel had just arrived in Malta when she received a call that ultimately changed her life, as she was told that she had been chosen to be part of the group and thus replacing the singer that had left to pursue a career in Opera. The British group All Angels were signed to a five album contract to Universal Classics and Jazz in 2006 and despite the high placing of their debut album hitting at position nine (9), their last two albums were moderately placed at forty-four (44) and fifty-four (54). One should note that with television and radio exposure behind them, along with a new recording label being AWOL Records, they are surely to bounce back also sporting this new line-up.

We would like to wish Rachel Fabri along with the rest of the group All Angels the very best of luck and we hope that we can get to speak to them in the coming weeks and months as we continue reporting on their progress. Keep following ESCflashmalta for the latest news about Maltese artists and their endeavors within the music industry.
