KKI 2012: Having a Look at 'Flimkien'

The editorial board of escflashmalta.com wanted to spice up things just a tad with regards to the feature that was taken on board and thus instead of working the way through the songs in their respective order as they will be performing later on during the day, they were presented starting from the last entry and indeed, the final one will actually be the first to perform. Whenever one does not succeed, then giving up is not the option even though it might sparkle at a certain outlook. There is a certain amount of luck which each individual can utilize without even knowing when the timing is right and this could be said for the next performer, Kristen Camilleri who will be performing the track Flimkien composed by Philip Vella and penned by Cher Vella. This was one of the three entries that eventually got through to the competition following the withdrawal of three of the qualified entries by Domenique and indeed, it has been an intriguing ride noting that this track features in the top five of the tele-voting portion of the competition, having done so from the early stages. This year, each track received the same amount of promotion through official videos as posted on YouTube and also reviews as published on escflashmalta.com daily for the past couple of weeks.

Teenagers have one of the most pivotal roles in the country and it is unequivocally important that their challenges in terms of goals for the future are met with great respect, dignity and praise at times with the shaping up of the future owed to them most of the time. The country will be dealing with stern challenges but then again, together, everything can be dealt with a relative pace and thus, one has to start acting as soon as possible to make sure that things get back to normal and ultimately succeed in continue creating a positive world which the people will continue living in. Kristen Camilleri is one of the newcomers to the local music scene noting that this years' Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza is well adjusted including acts which have already garnered a name for themselves and others which are looking for that shining moment which would make or break their careers. Nevertheless, Kristen has already accomplished quite a lot having studied under classical soprano, Gillian Zammit and starring in shows such as Dr.Seuss - The Musical put on by Masquerade Theatre Arts School. In recent months, she was also the backing vocalist for three entries at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and she is set to star in the upcoming edition of D.R.E.A.M.S which will be airing every Wednesday night on Television Malta.

Philip Vella is the man behind the music in this particular entry providing the competition with a total of eight compositions this time round, with three lyricists in general, those being former winner Joe Chircop, his daughter Cher Vella and singer/songwriter Rita Pace. Philip won the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza back in 2009 breaking the flow that was being set up by Mark Spiteri Lucas who had won it in the two years before and ultimately paving the way for two victories of Ray Agius, therefore being the only one in the last five years to have managed to break the domination of the most successful composers of the competition. Philip is an accomplished performer as well having taken part in the competition in 1999 with the track San Seksek Pro Nobis and in 2001 with the tracks Ġens B'Identita and Kieku u Kien whilst writing the music and lyrics to many other songs. The lyricist in this track is his daughter Cher Vella with whom he penned another two tracks and with whom he also made it through to the finals of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with, earlier this year with Lawrence Gray as the lead vocal.
