Facts about ChanelEBU

What are the favourite lyrics in your song?
Chasing sunsets here and far

as they follow the southern star

and they travel the world breathin’ out

it’s what their life is all about

what their life is all about

Because it gives a message of hope, to chase your dreams no matter how far and impossible they seem, and this is what life is all about – chasing one’s dreams!

How and when did you start with music?
My mum says I was always singing at home but I started vocal lessons when I was just turning 7 years. At my first vocal lesson, I did not know exactly what I had to do, but I just loved the idea of singing! And without knowing how, I was on stage one month later!

Who are your idols?
Demi Lovato, Sia, Kelly Clarkson and Faouzia.

How would you celebrate a Junior Eurovision victory?
There would definitely be a lot of crying, and that would be fantastic! I would surely celebrate with my family, including my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins! And my whole team who is behind Chasing Sunsets, whom I love a lot 😊.

How do you 'Move The World'?
By doing little things every day, like being a good person, helping others, smile more, be positive. But also by reducing waste and help keep my Malta tidy.

Lyrics of Chasing Sunsets

As the sun was rising I looked out over the horizon, over the horizon there were birds roaming free flying over a deep blue sea, a deep blue sea I could hear echoes so gentle that their sweetness flows, flows down the steady stream Chasing sunsets here and far as they follow the southern star they travel the world breathing out it’s what their life is all about it’s what their life is all about As the seasons slowly change they glide down on the mountain range and far far from all the crowds you see them pass through the gathering clouds you see them flow down the steady stream Chasing sunsets here and far as they follow the southern star they travel the world breathing out it’s what their life is all about it’s what their life is all about Red and orange will blend as the day comes to an end it feels like an illusion Chasing sunsets here and far as they follow the southern star Chasing sunsets here and far it’s what their life is all about it’s what their life is all about.
