The young singer received an award as part of the Malta Music Awards – the biggest music awards ceremony on the island. Gaia was awarded the ‘International Achievement Award’ in recognition of her victory in Kyiv, whilst her vocal coach Gillian Attard, who also co-wrote “The Start”, received a Recognition Award.
It was a busy weekend for Gaia, who also had the honour of opening Malta’s Eurovision Song Contest national final. Inside the MSCC in Ta’Qali, the audience sang along with every word to her song, and gave her a standing ovation after the performance.
