2010 was a year to remember for Glen as besides placing as first runner-up at the Malta Eurovision national final, he was also nominated for the Best Male Artist at the Malta Music Awards.  In addition, he has coached the team of Maltese singers at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Belarus.  Last but not least, Glen has performed a number of songs at the Top Sprint Awards, held in Sicily, Italy.

Glen is a resident singer on several leading TV shows in Malta.  He has recorded various jingles and theme songs for Maltese TV series and radio shows.  Other media related work includes live participation and singing on radio shows in Belarus, Belgium and the Netherlands. 

Glen is thrilled by musical theatre stage works and he has held main roles in numerous popular musicals.  Furthermore, he is actively involved in the prominent Maltese Gospel choir Animae, of which he is a member and founder. 

Through his participation in local and international festivals, he has managed to achieve outstanding results including a triple FIDOF Award obtained from three different festivals and the Jury Award which he received at the Golden Stag International Festival held in Romania in 2009.  Other international acts include a live concert in Toronto in honour of the Maltese settlers in Canada and live performances at song festivals in Alexandria, Egypt and in Varna, Bulgaria. 

Glen has started his singing career at the age of thirteen.  He studied both practical and theory in voice and piano. He is certified in voice coaching from the Victoria Music and Arts College, London.

Singing is very important for Glen but in his own words: There Is More To Life!
Glen in fact also works as a learning support assistant which involves working with persons with disability within the main stream schools. This is a profession that has reflected a lot on Glen’s positive outlook on life which is also reflected in the theme of his song Live And Let Live.

Lyrics of One Life

English (Original)

Life‘s a game, it’s a mystery Which we give into Days go by, no lesson learnt Just things that we do Things change Even in my mind Not in my heart I am who I am And I’m here for you
One Life Show what’s in your heart Love me like I love you One life Is all we get to live Time to set your heart free Chase the pain away Move on and don’t give up This time it’s all up to you You can love yourself too
Love is strange and heavenly Once you surrender Love begins within ourselves And makes up our lives Hold on To what life brings you Just be who you are You can lead the way too It’s all up to you One Life Show what’s in your heart Love me like I love you One life Is all we get to live Time to set your heart free Chase the pain away Move on and don’t give up This time it’s all up to you You can love yourself too
Don’t try to judge me You don’t know how I feel Love me love me for who I am My Life I will Give it all Give it all to you Give it all
One Life Show what’s in your heart Love me like I love you One life Is all we get to live Time to set your heart free Chase the pain away Move on and don’t give up This time it’s all up to you You can love yourself too It’s all up to you You can love yourself too And it’s al up to you You can love yourself too
