Christina Magrin

Although Christina has only been taking professional singing lessons October 2013, she has been singing ever since she was born. At three years of age she was chosen to play the part of ‘Dora the Explorer’ and sing a solo as part of a University of Malta Theatre Production “Infanta”.

Christina obtained her vocal Grade 8 level with the Trinity College of London this year where she has achieved the highest distinction ever achieved. She was also the youngest student to ever take this exam. The Trinity College of London have awarded Christina with a special prize of recognition for this accolade.

In 2014, she was chosen to sing and compete at the 2014 edition of “Una Stella Sta Nascendo” on Sky Italia. Christina won her category and received coverage on both local and Italian news.

In 2015, Christina was handpicked to appear on the Romanian talent show Next Star and won the final. On the 1st programme, her rendition of “Suus” (Albania 2012) not only caught the attention of millions of TV viewers and over 400K Youtube viewers, but also got recognition and went viral on Albanian media.

In 2016, Christina represented Malta at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest on home ground in Valletta. She finished 5th with the song “Parachute”. Her lastest single “Dance Away Our Fears” was released last month.

Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest

Malta debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1971 and was represented by Joe Grech and the song “Marija L-Maltija”, which finished last. Malta competed again in 1972 and 1975 but then withdrew until their return in 1991. During the 1990s Malta only once finished outside of the top 10, and in 1998 they came within just 7 points of victory. It was Chiara who brought the country their 3rd place finish in 1998, and who went on to finish in 2nd at the 2005 contest in Kyiv. The only other artist to finish 2nd for Malta is Ira Losco, who was 12 points away from victory in 2002. They are the longest participating country never to have won the Eurovision Song Contest.
