On the 21st and 22nd November, the Public Broadcasting Services will be hosting the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest at the Marsa Shipbuilding. 20 acts will be taking centre stage, in hope of representing the country at next year's edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, being held in Vienna, Austria. Over the next couple of weeks, escflashmalta.com will be publishing a series of interviews with all the participants. Whilst thanking the Public Broadcasting Services for this opportunity, Let's continue and follow things up with Glen Vella.

Would you kindly introduce your entry to our readers and also identify the meaning behind the lyrics?

It’s a very catchy tune. The style is upbeat and makes you feel good. Certainly you can dance along to it.

In Malta, the Eurovision Song Contest is considered to be a major outlet for the music industry, and you stand here as one of the semi-finalists. What does the whole experience mean to you?

I am a huge fan of the Eurovision Song Contest and after the experience of 2011 it was my dream to one day take part in this great spectacle again. I hope that my dream will become a reality with this song!

Recently, Malta has been rather successful at the Eurovision Song Contest, making the final on four of the last five participation attempts. What do you think is the reason for this success, and do you believe that your entry has what it takes to continue this positive trend?

I believe that many talented singers have been sent to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest over the years. They have enjoyed their chance to represent the country and always to the best of their abilities and the audience has always appreciated their efforts. I really hope so!

If you were given the opportunity to sing another one of the competing entries in the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, which one would it be and why?

There are so many other good songs in this year’s competition that it would be unfair to choose one!! 

Do you have any plans to release more music in the future, and do you have any particular projects in the pipeline?

I have recently embarked on an exciting new project at Vocal Booth Studios. I am director and tutor of Vocal Troupes. The aim behind Vocal Troupes is to teach different techniques that are necessary for singing in a group which are different to individual singing.

Would you like to say anything to our readers at escflashmalta.com?

Your support and love means a lot to me! I hope you like my song and that I am able to repay your loyal support with a great performance. Wish me luck!
