Malta: Kevin Paul Calleja Rises to the Occasion

Kevin Paul Calleja, brother of Kurt Calleja, representative on behalf of Malta at the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the track This Is The Night co-written alongside Johan Jämtberg and Mikael Gunnerås. Living in the shadow of a brother is not particularly easy, something seen with Claudia Faniello who many had thought might not be able to shy away from Fabrizio Faniello, a two time representative of the nation at the international spectacle. Kevin is already aiming big though, taking his musical skills into recording a cover of the song Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia.

During the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, Kevin Paul Calleja was the only family member to accompany Kurt on stage and this was seen as a positive move due to the fact that the two gelled extremely well together. Both artists had been on stage also at the 2011 Malta Eurovision Song Contest when Kurt had submitted the entry Over and Over which finished in third place. An official music video accompanying the cover directed by Daniel Abdilla was shot within a garage and the dark colours used seem to show a dark side to the song noting that the arrangement is stripped down to extreme basics. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news about the local music scene.
