Amber

Warrior

Amber is only 23 but she is already a Eurovision veteran. She has competed in Malta's Eurovision Song Contest national selection five times, finally winning the contest for 2015.

Amber was a keen student of judo as a youngster, obtaining a Green Belt before an injury forced her to quit at the age of 15. Since then she’s put her competitive energy into music, gaining success in local talent shows.
Amber’s number one passion is music and her dream is to secure a recording contract and perform in other countries. 
She is excited by her song Warrior, which was written especially for her and allows her to demonstrate her vocal range. The song is about overcoming difficulties by finding an inner strength; she hopes people will find it inspirational. Her own singing heroes are Etta James, Beyonce and Ray Charles.
Amber enjoys voluntary work. She spent three weeks working for a charity in Tanzania in 2013 and plans to return this summer. She also spent time helping young kids in need in Reggio Calabria in Italy. 
Amber is a Facebook addict and hopes to get to know the other contestants online before meeting them in person. She’s also a chocoholic and is looking forward to trying Austrian chocolates and drinking a hot chocolate in a Vienna coffee house.

Things you should know about Amber

What are the three most interesting aspects about your entry?
Warrior is very sentimental, and easy for anyone to relate to. Warrior is also motivational and positive as it provides courage and determination to overcome obstacles. Also interesting is the contrast between the classical and the modern, the dubstep. 

What are the three most impressive facts about you?
I am adventurous, full of energy and impressively ordinary!

Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?
I say a little prayer. 

Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?
The Eurovision Song Contest is a great platform for all performers. It’s an incredible opportunity to perform in front of millions of people across Europe and around the world; and there’s no audience like the audience of the contest. I would love to have my own album and go on tour. Who knows, the Eurovision Song Contest might make that happen.

Lyrics of Warrior

English (Original)

We Suffer, silently
always fighting to break free


We were living in a shadow
we were to scared to let go
Wouldn't accept defeat
when by losing we were winning
we have to be courageous
to be able to get through this
and then it hits.


Break through the silence
The noise is louder than it's ever been.
Create something timeless
Never look back, the past is the past
I had no choice but to become a warrior
I had to conquer
I did not break, I left my faith in hope.


We are not the enemy,
We’re just tired of suffering.


We broke through the shadow
We finally let go
and then it hit


Break through the silence
The noise is louder than it's ever been.
Create something timeless
Never look back, the past is the past
I had no choice but to become a warrior
I had to conquer
I did not break, I left my faith in hope.


I’m a warrior, I will conquer
I’m a warrior , I will conquer
I’m a warrior, I will conquer
I'm a warrior, I will conquer
I’m a Warrior.

Amber – Guerrière Malte 2015
Nous souffrons en silence Combattant sans cesse pour se libérer
Nous vivions dans un ombre Trop effrayés pour se laisser aller Nous n’aurions pas accepté la défaite Quand en perdant nous sortions vainqueurs Nous devons être courageux Etre capable d’affronter cela Et ça nous blesse.
Rompre le silence Le bruit est plus fort que jamais. Créer quelque chose d'intemporel Ne jamais regarder en arrière, le passé est le passé Je n'avais d'autre choix que de devenir une Guerrière Il me fallait conquérir Je n'ai pas faillie, j'ai mis ma foi dans l'espérance
Nous ne sommes pas l'ennemi, Nous sommes juste fatigués de souffrir.
Nous sortons de l'ombre Enfin nous nous laissons aller Et ça nous blesse.

Rompre le silence Le bruit est plus fort que jamais Créer quelque chose d'intemporel Ne jamais regarder en arrière, le passé est le passé Je n'avais d'autre choix que de devenir une Guerrière Il me fallait conquérir Je n'ai pas faillie, j'ai mis ma foi dans l'espérance
Je suis une Guerrière, je conquerrai Je suis une Guerrière, je conquerrai Je suis une Guerrière, je conquerrai Je suis une Guerrière, je conquerrai Je suis une Guerrière.
