Life and career

Federica Falzon was born on 17 February 2003 in a rural village named Safi, Malta (Maltese : Ħal Safi). She has been interested in music for most of her life, and has started singing at age 8. Her grandpa took her to karaoke clubs where most people encouraged her to take singing lessons. In 2011, Falzon sang in front of an audience for the first time at Festa Hiliet. There, she sang two songs - "Sailing" by The Sutherland Brothers, and "Rose Garden" by Lynn Anderson.

Federica started out as a country-pop singer, but discovered her passion for classical music through her vocal tutor and mentor Gillian Attard from Malta's La Voix Academy. Falzon has also taken part in Sanremo D.O.C. and won RAI UNO's Ti lascio una canzone 2014, [2] despite not knowing any Italian when she arrived in Italy. [3] In November 2013, Falzon won Ghanja Gmiel is-Seba Noti with an original song titled "Ilwien il-Holqien" (Nature's colours).

On 18 July, Falzon was one of the guest performers in the annual concert held on the Granaries Floriana by Maltese tenor and internationally acclaimed Joseph Calleja. [4]
