Malta: Domenique Returns on TVM every Saturday

Domenique, one of the most promising vocalists that the local music scene is proud to offer, has just been in touch with the editorial team of escflashmalta.com in order to confirm her weekly presence on the show "Sibtek". Hosted by Ryan Borg on Television Malta every Saturday afternoon, the programme features a host of well known individuals from the entertainment industry.

At just 15 years of age, in 2011, Domenique made it through to the semi-final of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the song "I'll Follow the Sunshine" composed by Ralph Siegel to the lyrics of Bernd Meinunger. She might not have made the final on that occasion but set the bar high for the future, eventually getting through to the competition once more in 2013, this time with the song "Too Little Too Late" composed by Marc Paelinck to the lyrics of Matthias Strasser. She made it through to the final on that occasion.

During her short career, Domenique has already managed to qualify to all the major events that encompass the local music calender having been a part of; Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, Festival Internazzjonali tal-Kanzunetta Maltija, L-Għanja tal-Poplu, and the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook & Twitter as we bring you the latest news from the local music scene.

I'll Follow the Sunshine composed by Ralph Siegel to the lyrics of John O'Flynn as well as Too Little Too Late written by Marc Paelinck and Matthias Strasser were the first two major show-stopping performances by female vocalist, Domenique. Both were under-rated when it came to the results but both led to denote this artist as an extreme professional. This was something that was also realised at the recent edition of the Disovery Festival in Varna, Bulgaria were Domenique was awarded with the Best Promising Artist Award.

Robert Cefai and WAFA are to thank for this experience. In Malta, her most recent festival appearances were in the International Festival of Maltese Song with the track Passi Fir-Ramel composed by Philip Vella to the lyrics of Mark Amaira and in L-Għanja tal-Poplu with the song Insellmulkom written by Philip Vella and Joe Chircop. Domenique, ever so present in the local music scene since an extremely young age, is currently a resident singer on the programme Sibtek hosted by Ryan Borg on Television Malta every Saturday afternoon. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.

Submissions for the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest will officially take place in around three weeks time actually and therefore, it is somewhat supposedly obvious that several artists are currently recording their entries in local and foreign studios with the hope of making it through to the final twenty-participants who will then take part in a televised showcase on Television Malta sometime at the end of January or the beginning of February respectively according to several factors. It will be quite interesting to see who will ultimately submit a song or two into the selection process with the hype definitely on 2007 Eurovision Song Contest representative; Olivia Lewis who has made her intentions clear that she does intend to return but does not know whether this will be the year. Other people who have already confirmed their participation include Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2011 and 2012 participants; Marilena Gauci and Danica Muscat respectively alongside the likes of Don't Stop Me Now winner; Franklin Calleja and Junior Eurosong 2009 Finalist; Stefan Galea. Joining this list now is none other than Domenique Azzopardi, another eighteen year old with high hopes in making it big in the music industry, both on a local and a foreign scale.

Introduction for Domenique is somewhat unneeded having worked her way up through a number of local competitions throughout the years including the Junior Eurosong competition where she has been close and yet so far in representing the country at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Making it through to the semi-final of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest in 2011 was surely a highlight performing the track I'll Follow The Sunshine written by a former winning composer of the prestigious event back in 1982 with Nicole and her track Ein Bischen Frieden. In the meantime, more recently, Domenique has just come forth from a second runner-up finish at the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza with the song Tama u Kuraġġ penned by Cher Vella to the composition of her father, Philip. The number of tracks that she will be submitting into the competition seems to be unclear but then again, considering that Domenique has worked with foreign and local songwriters in the past, there could definitely be more than one with a variety of styles beckoning to be released out of the box so to speak. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com in the coming days as we continue revealing the latest news exclusively.
