"No Surrender", an entry in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2011, and also title track of album number #6 for male singer/songwriter, Fabrizio Faniello might be taken more to heart, rather than rekindling his career in music, after going public with a drug addiction problem, from which he is still recovering. During a recent television interview with Peppi Azzopardi during "Xarabank" on Television Malta, the male vocalist revealed that the main aim behind the chat was for people to acknowledge their problem and seek support.

Fabrizio Faniello represented Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest on two occasions, first in 2001 with "Another Summer Night", composed by Paul Abela to the lyrics of Georgina Abela and then in 2006 with "I Do", a song which he co-wrote with Aldo Spiteri. 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. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the local music scene.

Malta: More Success for Fabrizio Faniello

The start of the twenty first century had been known to bring about a number of changes in the local music industry but it is worth pointing out that just prior to that, a brand new male vocalist in the form of Fabrizio Faniello was born and from then onwards, it has been a constant fight for success, which in most cases has also been attained. The renowned performer has already managed to represent Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest on two occasions received mixed results with his final participation putting his career in doubt but working through difficulties is part of the game and ultimately, he has returned with new material and with a solid set of fans who will always be around to support his work. His most recent single entitled The Hardest Thing written by Wayne Hector, Elliot Kennedy and Gary Barlow taken off his fifth studio album Surrender is already doing well abroad especially following the video release which was an escflashmalta.com exclusive.

Considering that Fabrizio Faniello has been to the European showcase at least twice, it seems that he does have an audience which prefers listening to his vocal and in fact, he could be found at number #1 on the chart which is compiled by eurovisionontop.com ahead of acts who did better than him at the event when they competed including none other than Ani Lorak, Lena, Patricia Kaas, Ott Lepland, Alexander Rybak and Hadise amongst others. Nevertheless, it is also worth noting that airplay is vital and hence forth, it seems that Germany have picked up on the track as well because The Hardest Thing by Fabrizio Faniello is currently at number #22 at Radio Contact. The chart which is currently being led by Adele, David Guetta and Rihanna is definitely a huge achievement for the Maltese star who for the most part of his career has been signed to Spectre Media and CAP-Sounds which are affiliated with Universal Music Germany. Should you wish to purchase your copy of the track, visit the iTunes store. The editorial team at escflashmalta.com would like to wish Fabrizio Faniello the very best of luck with his success and in the meantime, we hope that you stay tuned for more news.

Professionalism is the key to success in the music industry and one of the artists who has definitely showed strength and compassion in returning to what he does best is Fabrizio Faniello, the man who represented Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest on two separate and distinct occasions; in 2001 with the track Another Summer Night finishing in ninth place and in 2006 with the song I Do finishing in a languishing bottom position which many somewhat disagree with nevertheless. Following a couple of months and years away from the music scene in order to settle a number of issues, the male performer returned with a bang at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest in 2011 with the track No Surrender which later on throughout the year would also become the lead single off his latest album of the same. The compilation features tracks written by local and foreign writers but then again, one of the songs, a cover of the Toše Proeski hit; The Hardest Thing stands out from the rest for the sheer power that Fabrizio has given it. The song which was the last single from the Balkan performer and was written by Wayne Hector, Elliot Kennedy and Gary Barlow of Take That fame, was also set to launch the artist but unfortunately, he passed away far too quickly. escflashmalta.com has the pleasure to exclusively reveal the video for Fabrizio's version of The Hardest Thing thanks to CAP-Sounds, Universal Music Germany and Spectre Media.

Since returning back to music, Fabrizio has shown clear dedication in this respective field, launching a brand new solo career in Asia where he has become a star in the likes of Indonesia after releasing his debut album over there, a compilation of hits from his last couple of albums in the official language of the respective country. Nevertheless, his fan base in Europe has never forgotten him and he has been invited to attend two spectacular OGAE Meetings in the next couple of weeks; the first one being held in the town of Bologna, Italy on the 27th October and the second one being that organised in the city of Cologne, Germany on the 24th November. The editorial team of escflashmalta.com has also spoke to Fabrizio to learn the idea behind releasing this song as his latest single considering that it is a cover and this is what he had to tell us 'This is coming at a right time in my life as really I am going through something similar of what the song is talking about. I’m honoured that I’m singing a Gary Barlow song and thanks & respect to Toše who walked away too early…' Fabrizio Faniello maintains an outstanding reputation by virtue of putting the past behind him and looks towards the future. He is always described as a hard working performer by his manager; Manfred Holz of CAP-Sounds, based in Germany under the watchful eye of Universal Music Germany. It is yet unconfirmed on whether he will be submitting any tracks to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest in 2013 but stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more news.
