Young Maltese singer Emma Cutajar has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Commonwealth Song Contest (CSC).
The 16-year-old artist has already won several accolades in her career, including a Golden Buzzer on Malta’s Got Talent, meaning she made it to the semi-finals.
“I am eagerly looking forward to the Commonwealth experience. ‘I Miss You’ has a special place in my heart besides earning me The Golden Buzzer. I am also honoured to represent Malta in the contest,” Emma told Lovin Malta.
Cutajar had composed the song ‘I Miss You’ at the tender age of 14 as a tribute to her sister who had unfortunately passed away before being born.
Besides winning the Golden Buzzer, the popular YouTube channel, Top 10 Talent, had named Malta’s Got Talent Semi-Finalist as part of its list of the Top 10 most emotional singing auditions of 2020.
“The CSC has received thousands of entries a year since the last event in 2018 and Emma’s song, ‘I Miss You’ has been chosen as a finalist from a very talented pool of potential candidates.”
The Commonwealth Song Contest is a major international music event for the 2.5 billion people of the 56 Commonwealth Nations.
The first CSC launched during The 2018 Commonwealth Games and received thousands of song entries from artists and songwriters. Finalists and winners were chosen with an international public voting system.
Public voting is still open for the Commonwealth Song Contest.
