Michela, will sing for Malta at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. She has only just turned 18 years of age and currently lives on the tiny island of Gozo, part of the Maltese archipelago and known as a hidden gem in the Mediterranean. Her voice is described by many as memorable and powerful, with a breathtaking breaking point. She loves a wide range of genres from pop and country to soul.

As a then-unknown talent in Malta, she exploded on to the X-Factor stage, leaving the judges speechless. Michela won the final as if it was the only thing she was born to do. Previously, she had won the Music Talent League in Lithuania, was a finalist in the Baltic Voices competition and attended the Ultimate Artist development programme in Hertfordshire London, where she worked with Rihanna's producer.

Michela describes herself as an average teenager. She explains: "... but when I start singing, it’s as if my voice takes over my entire being. Aretha Franklin once said that you sing soul with your whole body. I know exactly what she means." Michela is currently signed to Sony Music.

Lyrics of Chameleon

I'm bluer than the ocean I'm golden like the rising sun and I'm red with hot emotion And when they try to ho oh ld me down Inside a box i find my way out I'm keepin' it in motion When life brings me trouble this I know I never walk away no no never walk away no no no no We are technicolour watch us go And we never walk away no no Stay with me now Chame chameleon Chame chamelon Chame chameleon Yalla yalla yalla la la la Chame chameleon Chame chamelon Chame chameleon Yalla yalla yalla la la la The grass is always greener When you love me deeper darlin' I can be your jungle So when they try to ho oh ld me down Inside a box I find my way out I'm keepin' it emotion When life brings me trouble this I know I never walk away no no never walk away no no no no We are technicolor watch us go And we never walk away no no Stay with me now Chame chameleon chame chameleon Chame chameleon Yalla yalla yalla la la la Give me water I’m a swimmer Give me fire I’m a fighter Give me love I’m your lover Make me cry I'll be a river Take my heart I'll be a giver I can change like the weather When life brings me trouble this I know I never walk away no no never walk away no no We are technicolour watch us go And we never walk away no no Stay with me now Give me water I’m a swimmer Give me fire I’m a fighter Give me love I’m your lover When life brings me trouble this I know I never never walk away never walk away Chame chameleon
