One can earn a place within the local music industry through talent and credentials and that is exactly what Gloriana Arpa Belli brings to the table because apart from justifying her vocal performances, she is the daughter of Helen Micallef and also the niece of Renato; both of which represented the country at the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1972 and 1975 respectively. Therefore, it comes to no surprise that the female artist would like to follow in their footsteps having such family history within the respective event. In yet, another exclusive, we can officially reveal that Gloriana Arpa Belli will be submitting not one but two tracks in the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. Her best result at this point in time though has been a semi-final back in 2009 when she entered the track Our Love Was Made of Clay composed by Renato Briffa and penned by Doris Chetcuti. She will be hoping to make it through to the stage performance this time round amongst the twenty-four semi-finalists which will be announced on the 30th November 2012.

The very first time that Gloriana made an impact on the local music scene was when she took part part in The Best Singer Award competition organised by Peter Busuttil on his programme Red which used to air on NET Television. She bagged the top position and became a resident singer on the show leading to a variety of other performances including the television programme Siesta also on NET Television. She started to take part in competitions starting as fro 2006 by virtue of entering the Golden Cross International Singing Festival with local and foreign performers and once more, she as awarded first place and was offered to sing abroad. Her success was picking up quickly and in 2007, she performed all around the Maltese Islands before giving back to society as a teacher  Following her participation in the Malta Eurosong competition, she went to the Universong International Singing Competition with the same track and finishing in fist place before returning to finish in second place at the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza with the track Fil-Mużika composed by Renato Briffa and penned by Doris Chetcuti. Currently, Gloriana has just took up the vocalist position of Rock Band; The Posh Beggars whilst also being given artist residency on ONE Television through the programme; Affari Tagħna hosted by John Bundy.
