Biography

Gianluca Cilia is 9 years old. He was born in Malta in 2007 and is the 2nd of 3 children. He currently attends ‘St.Francis School’ in Birkirkara.

It became apparent from a very tender age that Gianluca had a passion for singing. He would sing along to any tune on the radio and would entertain anyone with his joyful soul and passionate singing. He showed a real interest at the age of 6, when he started singing and music theory lessons. Gianluca used to join her sister when she had singing sessions with her vocal coach and loved the idea of interpreting different songs he likes. Her mother booked a session for him too when she saw he was interested and before he knew it, he was taking it seriously and started taking part in competitions.

Gianluca started participating in various local festivals where he has always been praised and encouraged to keep on nourishing his talent. In 2016 he won the overall Grand Prix of the First International Arpeggio Festival organised by Erseb Productions.

This year Gianluca has won the Maltese national selection and will be representing Malta at the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Tbilisi in November – a dream come true!

Apart from his passion for singing, Gianluca loves writing and aspires to become a professional singer and author. In his free time, Gianluca enjoys, reading, meeting his friends and is a big Lego fan.

Lyrics:

Come on and play this game

Gianluca is my name

Together let us unite

Because we’re all the same

 

Don’t worry laugh again

there’s no rules to explain

I am your guide on this ride

This feels so insane

 

Always on the run,

ready to have fun

 

Dawra tond spinning to the sound

life’s a whirlpool a merry-go-round!

Dawra tond spinning going fast

life’s a topspin crazy swaying past!

 

Go on and feel the buzz

no matter what one does

We are the best there’s no rest

You don’t need to fuss

 

Fly high and sense the thrill

in you you’ve got the will

reachin’ new heights flashing lights

your joy you’ll fulfill

 

Always on the run,

ready to have fun

 

Dawra tond spinning to the sound

life’s a whirlpool a merry-go-round!

Dawra tond spinning going fast

life’s a topspin crazy swaying past!

 

Dawra durella qabża żigarella

ċoff tal-bellus, ċaqċaqilu lil għarus

Iż-żunżana idur idur fuq il-bejt tal-kaċċatur

meta tasal taħt il-mina tagħmel żin żan żun

 

Dawra tond spinning to the sound

life’s a whirlpool a merry-go-round!

Dawra tond spinning going fast

life’s a topspin crazy swaying past!

 

Dawra tond induru flimkien

nallegraw niżfnu ma’ kullimkien!

Dawra durella qabża żigarella

ċoff tal-bellus, ċaqċaqilu lil għarus

Dawra tond spinning going fast

life’s a topspin crazy swaying past!
