In 2010, the Eurovision Song Contest was hosted in Oslo, Norway and the broadcaster responsible for the event held an extravagant national selection process which saw to the victory of Didrik Solli-Tangen with My Heart is Yours, a co-write between Frederik Kempe and Hanne Sørvaag. A cover version of the song by a local artist appeared on the internet in the past couple of hours with the vocalist being none other than Roger Tirazona, a former finalist at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and recent participant at the International Festival of Maltese Song.

Roger Tirazona is one of the most respected soloists in the local music scene and has been twice been close to representing Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest, first time in 2006 with the track This Heart of Mine and the second time in 2007 with the song Startlight, both composed by Paul Abela to the lyrics of Joe Julian Farrugia and with the group, Trilogy. When it comes to the cover of My Heart is Yours, one could denote that the approach to the music is a quiet one and the song has been stripped down a little bit more than the original. The aim is surely to let Roger’s vocals do all the required work without any musical interference. The result is stunning and remarkably better than the original. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news.
