MESC 2014: KAYA SUBMITS SONG FOR DENMARK
Olivier Rocher (France)
VALLETTA, MALTA – The very first to confirm submission for Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2014 is already known, and it is no other than Priscilla (aka Kaya), a name familiar to all Eurovision fans in Malta. The singer started her “Eurovision journey” back in 2000 taking part to the Maltese selection show and finishing in 3rd position with “Our Love”.
She went back on local Eurovision stage during the 2010 Go Malta Eurosong contest, reaching the 12th position together with Kurt Calleja and their duet entry “Waterfall”. In 2012, under her new name Kaya, she finished 13th in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with “First Time”.
Those average results may hide the popularity of the singer in the archipelago. It should be reminded that she won prestigious local festivals on two occasions, the 2001 L-Għanja tal-Poplu (People’s Ode Song Contest) and the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza (Independence Day Festival) in 2007. She also represented her homeland in several festivals abroad.
So now her new goal is set, and it’s MESC 2014! Xorti tajba Kaya!
