Lawrence Gray, an accomplished male singer/songwriter, a three time runner-up in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, and also recent finalist with "The One That You Love", co-written with Elton Zarb recently gave an interview to Deo Grech on "The Celebrity Night" which airs on Saturday nights on F Living.

In light of his most recent participation, Lawrence felt 'disappointed' for the simple reason that the 'public reaction was extremely positive' and as a result did not expect to finish as lowly as 8th place. He went onto add, that without the support of Maronia, his wife, he would have long given up on the music scene, 'opting out of it', and vying for other strongholds in life. We do agree, as that position was definitely unwarranted, as were many others during the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2015.

Lawrence Gray, is a versatile male singer/songwriter who has twice been denied the right to represent Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest, in 1999 with "The Right Time" written by Philip Vella and Paul Abela and in 2003 with "Why Not?" written by Ray Agius. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news from the local music scene, and do not forget to view the New Year's Special of 'The Celebrity Night' which is airing tomorrow night.

Malta: Lawrence Gray Releases Brand New Song

Lawrence Gray, runner-up at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest on two occasions; first in 1999 with The Right Time composed by Paul Abela to the lyrics of Philip Vella and then in 2003 with Why Not? written by Ray Agius has just unveiled a brand new track. The new song, performed exclusively for the very first time during the MoC Sport Awards held at the Grand Hotel Excelsior and then during a fundraising activity on NET Television bears the name Holding Back the Years and was one of the submissions at the 2012 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.

The song, which Lawrence wrote himself had been shortlisted in the second phase, along with another sixty-one (61) songs but the professional panel of judges had selected his second song entitled In Your Eyes composed by Philip Vella to the lyrics of Cher Vella instead. We’re not baffled by the decision with the renowned vocalist seeking to garner appreciation for a vocal range that has not been given the chance to represent the country at the biggest international stage. In recent weeks, he was one of the special co-hosts during the International Festival of Maltese Song joining the likes of Mary Rose Mallia, Debbie Scerri, Renato and Alfred Zammit. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
