Earlier this afternoon, 12-year old Ela took to the stage at the Minsk Arena in Belarus and gave a brilliant account of herself, showing her distinctive vocal range and commanding stage presence. It is worth pointing out that she is accompanied by 4 dancers on stage; 3 girls and 1 boy who add that extra something to what is already a very solid presentation.

Ela is singing Marchin’ On, which she co-wrote with lyricist Emil Calleja Bayliss and composer Cyprian Cassar. She speaks about how people should face their problems head on, and never look back. It is a very positive and uplifting message which everyone needs to hear, and which they will in the penultimate slot, number 19 on Sunday 25th November at 16:00 CET.

12-year-old singer/songwriter Ela will represent Malta in the next edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest held in Minsk, Belarus with the uplifting original number Marchin’ On, composed by Cyprian Cassar and penned by Emil Calleja Bayliss.

Ela was chosen to represent Malta following her triumph at the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest on the 8th September whereby a panel of professional judges and the general public each had a 50% share in deciding the winner from a possible 16 competing entries.

It was the first time since 2010 that a national final featuring original songs took place. On that occasion, it was Nicole Azzopardi and Knock Knock!... Boom! Boom! which emerged victorious, finishing in 13th place at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Co-incidentally on that occasion, the event also took place in Minsk, Belarus.

In support of Malta’s participation at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Ela together with the Public Broadcasting Services produced a music video further highlighting the message of the song that even through times of dismay and despair, you should never give up hope, and march on.

Malta: New Powerful Single by Janice Mangion

With the success of Kewkba in the local and international music scene in hindsight, it was a given that the same creative minds would come together once more to work on something else which transcends magic, depth and strength. This time round, songwriters Mark Scicluna and Emil Calleja Bayliss were joined by Cyprian Cassar, who also worked on the production. Keeping in line with the diverse elements that showcase the full vocal potential of Janice Mangion, Warda was born.

“It has always been at the back of my mind to work on an original song which I could dedicate to my mother due to her continuous dedication throughout the years ... she never had an easy life, and she did everything in her capability to make sure that I am always happy ... the love of a mother is something incredible, and as a result, I refer to her as a rose” says Janice Mangion about the song with a smile on her face and sparkling eyes.

Throughout these past 12 months, Janice Mangion has been involved in several spectacles including the biggest music festival in Eastern Europe, the Slaviansky Bazaar where she finished amongst the top 10 after singing in Maltese, English and even Russian. Janice believes that the ‘Maltese language is of great value and it is rather sad that it is not always appreciated and taken care of in the best possible way.’

Supported by a strong visual created by producer Matthew Muscat-Drago, Warda made it’s debut on television on the 8th February 2018 although it was made public on several forms of social media as well as all digital stores the following day on the 9th February 2018. This was possible as a result of a collaboration between Ironic PR & Artist Management and CAP-Sounds whose absolute professionalism is to be commended.

In the coming days and weeks, Janice will be promoting Warda on television, radio and even social media, noting that interest will be rather high. For more information about Janice Mangion as well as the new single, visit her on her official social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. There you will find a lot of information, more than you could ever imagined.

Franklin Calleja, second runner-up at this year’s edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, and an artist who profile has risen in a relatively short amount of time owing to his incredible vocal skills has just released his first radio single, “Let You Go”, composed by Cyprian Cassar and penned by Matt ‘Muxu’ Mercieca.

This is the second time that the trio have worked together as a unit, having previously been responsible for his success at Malta’s leading competitive event, “Little Love”. “Let You Go” is written in a significantly different genre that what people have come to expect from the talented artist, merging a thumping bass, with an ethnic sounding brass instrument.

It is new, it is different and it works. In a supporting music video, produced by Fade in Media, Franklin is scaling the heights and having fun with the song, something that he does not normally do, noting that he tends to feel very emotional as he tackles a ballad.

“Let You Go” has amassed a stunning number of views through social networking website Facebook, but it has also made an impact on the local radio stations, making Malta’s Top 10 on 89.7 Bay. We urge you to listen to the song below, and also stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news as soon as it becomes available.

Malta: Andy Shaw and Gaia Cauchi Record Duet

Andy Shaw, a skilled 14-year old male singer/songwriter whose breakthrough appearance was at the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest as a special guest, and Gaia Cauchi, a female singer/songwriter best known for winning the 2013 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with "The Start" co-written with Elton Zarb, Gillian Attard and Matthew Mercieca (Muxu), have decided to share their mutual love towards music, by recording "Love Me Like You Do", a song from the highly acclaimed motion picture 'Fifty Shades of Grey' as a duet.

Recorded, mixed and produced by Cyprian Cassar at Tenishia Studios, the release of "Love Me Like You Do" is supported with a monochromatic music video, specifically created by Joseph Agius to reflect the lyrical context of the song. "Love Me Like You Do", written by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Ali Payami and Tove Nilsson is an emotional ballad which would be best described as synthpop, originally interpreted by British female singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding. 

As a duet, Andy and Gaia gave the song a completely different feel, altering the meaning of the lyrics ever so slightly, encompassing the true meaning of friendship, rather than staying loyal to the lustful meaning, as exhibited in the original version. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the local music scene.
