Malta seems to be very well represented in this year's Swiss selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Initially Rosman Pace who had actually entered the first song from the Maltese Islands, he was then followed by Jason Scerri, David Muscat and Romina Mamo. Now a fifth Maltese entry has been uploaded and it's no less than the popular veteran singer/songwriter Rita Pace!

Rita Pace is a well known singer but she has proven herself also as a composer for several Maltese artists. She participated in a duet or a solo artist within the Malta song for Europe on no more than five occasions 1998, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004 and came 3rd as a Songwriter in the Malta Song for Europe in 2008 with the song "She Gives Me Wings" performed by Klinsmann and composed by Mark Spiteri Lucas. Her song 'Indian summer' written by Clinton Paul is an uptempo entry which special sounds and influences and totally different than the other Maltese entries in the Swiss selection. We do wish also Rita the best of luck in the selection and cross our fingers for the best possible result. The song can be watched and heard through this link here.

ESCflashmalta has contacted the composer of the song Clinton Paul and this is what he had to say about this entry and it's submission "Well about two weeks ago Rita and myself were talking on the phone about submitting "Indian Summer" abroad. It is very particular in its style and it is an experiment to see how it goes down with the Eurovision fans. We are very excited about the Swiss selection. Fingers Crossed!"
