Malta: Success for Young Stars in Poland

In the past couple of years, there have been a number of influential individuals who with years of practice have taken up the role of vocal coaches. Experience is surely an important asset and in fact, one of the most popular teachers in the country is none other than Kaya otherwise known as Priscilla Psaila who boasts a strong repertoire of original songs in both Maltese and English. She has been quite successful with her students actually and she has just returned from another showcase in the city of Czestechowa within Poland in a competition called the May Festival. The students who took up the position in the competition were Anhelica Pace of nine years, Rutger Scicluna who is ten years old, Maria Christina Desira who is thirteen and Grezia Urry, the eighteen year old teenager.

The performances abroad were mostly of cover versions as Anhelica for example finishing in third place following her rendition of the song I Surrender having been chosen to represent our country due to the her previous experiences in a number od competitions including Lithuania and Romania. In the meantime, Rutger and Grezia were doing their country proud for the very first time with yet another third place finish with performances of the songs Hero and Con Il Tuo Nome. The last participant being Maria Christina also competed and received the best result of all of the children finishing in first place with the performance of the song Gli Uomini Non Cambiano. All of them are extremely happy with what they have managed to achieve and on behalf of the editorial team at escflashmalta.com, I would like to congratulate them on sublime results. Stay tuned for more of such news in the days, weeks and months to come.
