12-year-old vocal powerhouse Ela Mangion is Malta’s entry for this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Minsk, Belarus, and her first rehearsal is already impressing people around the world.
Ela’s song Marchin’ On is a powerful ballad that touches on sensitive topics such as bullying and Malta’s migrant crisis, inspiring a sense of motivation and determination in listeners.
Ela took to the stage in Minsk last night for her first rehearsal accompanied by two dancers from Kinetic Dance Academy.
Her performance included a backdrop of visuals from her music video (along with others that didn’t make the final cut), as well as the same piano used in the video.
Many people who viewed the footage on YouTube were impressed by Ela’s powerful vocals, and have stated that they believe she deserves a place in the top five.
We wish Ela the best of luck and can’t wait to see her slay the competition on Sunday!
