Glen Vella, one of the nations' most notable names in the local music industry both before and after representing Malta in the 2011 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song One Life composed by Paul Giordimaina and penned by Fleur Balzan which had only failed to make it through to the finals by a mere one point. It has just come to the attention of the editorial board that in recent days, Glen was actually on the road promoting his music once more, this time in Sweden which will be playing host to the continental event in a couple of months time. In fact, the showcase organised by the OGAE Branch in Sweden took place in Harrys Katrineholm which is known to be quite a popular nightclub. Various local and foreign media outlets were covering the event and therefore, there was quite good exposure attributed to the event.

Glen Vella was one of the six acts which received the invite to appear in the event amongst; Lys Assia (Switzerland 1956, 1957, 1958), Joan Franka (Netherlands 2012), Sinplus (Switzerland 2012), Esther Hart (Netherlands 2003) and Birgitta Haudkal (Iceland 2003). During the evening, Glen took to the evening to perform a number of tracks starting with his Eurovision entry One Life before performing an acoustic version of Knockin' on a Heaven's Door in a duet with Joan Franka, which was very well enjoyed by the people present, so much so that the two are in contact to work together on a track in the very near future. Nevertheless, he followed with a cover of the track This Is My Life which represented Iceland back in 2008 and then ended the show by singing a medley of Swedish hits from the Eurovision Song Contest. Glen would like to wish all of the readers of this portal, a huge thanks for all the support shown throughout the years.


Glen has been on a high following his appearance at the continental event though being awarded the Best Male Artist at the ONE Tribute Awards before garnering a nomination for the same accolade at the Malta Music Awards last year. This year in the meantime, he has been busy with brand new single releases of Lie and Louder whilst also getting the opportunity to perform with longtime friend; Eleanor Cassar during her show, a Tribute to the great Whitney Houston. He is currently very busy preparing to leave for a performance in Italy with his Gospel Group Animae which also includes performers such as Annabelle Debono, Janice Mangion, Pamela, Nadine Axisa and Anna Azzopardi amongst others. We would like you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about former representatives at the Eurovision Song Contest.
