In 2006, Maestro Paul Abela and Joe Julian Farrugia wrote a song entitled This Heart of Mine for a trio which in turn comprised of Roger Tirazona, Eleanor Spiteri and Cliff Zammit Stevens. Together, they were called Trilogy and finished in third place, behind Fabrizio Faniello and Olivia Lewis. That composition received a lot of praise but did not last long, noting that a couple of months later, Cliff had to leave for the United Kingdom and continue studying music abroad. 

This left an opening, a void, one which was replaced by a promising pop vocalist, Daniel Debono who had been found through the popular reality talent show L-iSfida. They submitted the song Starlight into the 2007 edition of the Malta Song for Europe, and finished in second place, quite a way off from Olivia Lewis who won that years' edition. It was noted that their image had to be adapted for better use of the music industry, and indeed, they did come back slicker than ever, two years later, with The Song In Your Heart which is considered to be the best track that they presented, alas finishing in sixth place.

escflashmalta.com has recently learned that Trilogy is set to make a comeback to the local music scene, alas with a brand new line-up knowing that Daniel Debono has also left to further his studies abroad. Joining Roger Tirazona and Eleanor Spiteri is seemingly none other than former Eurovision Song Contest representative; Ludwig Galea although a representative for the group has declined to comment about this speculation, continuing to fuel rumours that this is close to being reality. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest.

On the 25th and 26th January 2014, the Catholic Institute in Floriana played host to The Celebration Pop and Musicals Concert produced by Spiteri Lucas Entertainment, in recognition of their ten years in the entertainment industry. Ample media coverage was given to both evenings due to an impressive line-up, one which included none other than former Eurovision Song Contest representatives; Debbie Scerri (1997) and Ludwig Galea (2004) whilst also featuring Pamela, Neville Refalo, Dorothy Bezzina, Eleanor Spiteri, Roger Tirazona and Ivan Spiteri Lucas who have all been part of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest in one year, or another.

The show was divided into two (2) acts; Pop and Musicals, in order to maintain the status of what the public were anticipating although in my opinion, it was the second act which shined through, especially with the vocal ranges of certain artists. Looking through the list of numbers once more, I was impressed towards the end of the concert, noting that the phrase save the best for last still exists in show business. Ludwig Galea and Dorothy Bezzina stole the limelight with their rendition of Les Miserables’ Master of the House whilst Pamela was effortless during her take on Wishing You Were Somehow Hear Again from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera.

Nevertheless, when together, the ensemble gave magnificent renditions, especially of One Day More, the classic that will never go unnoticed from Les Miserables. Singing, one of the most prestigious arts around was aided by another form of entertainment, dancing with the Dancel Dance Team directed by Celaine Buhagiar present in various numbers, adding a touch of visual spectacle to the whole show. Whilst the lead vocalists were almost spot on throughout the entire performance, bar a couple of notes from certain specific individuals, it is important to point out the masterful children’s choir under the direction of Neville Refalo, renditions got the audience clapping mid-way through performances.

The lead vocalists are essential and prominent in every show of Spiteri Lucas Entertainment, but one has to point out the opportunities given to the backing vocalists; Claudio Teuma Castelleti, Abigail Critien and Amelia Hope, the latter of which also had the pleasure of performing with the main cast during the first act. A rising star, who is working with renowned songwriter and producer Rene Mamo had a busy repertoire on her hands but dealt with it like a true seasoned professional. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news about the local music scene.
