Deborah C: “I’m super happy to be in the final for the 7th consecutive year”
Deborah C is a true veteran of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, as she is taking part in this competition for the seventh time. Her best result came in 2014 when she took part with “Until We Meet Again”. This year she is back in the Contest with the song “Turn It Up”.
We had a pleasure to chat with Deborah C, get to know her better and find out more about her entry “Turn It Up”. Check out everything she told us right here in this interview:
Hi Deborah! First of all thank you for your time for doing this interview, and congratulations for making it to the Finals of MESC once again! How did you feel when you found out that you are one of the finalists?
Thank You indeed! I’m very excited and super happy to be in the final for the 7th consecutive year… Let the journey begin :p
How did you decide to enter a song again this year? Can you tell us more about the story of the song, what it’s about, and the team who worked on it?
I remember saying to myself “I will have a break this year”, until I received the song “Turn It Up”. It made me change my opinion completely. Christian Schneider, Aidan O’ Connor, Sarah Biglert and Erik Gronwall (composers/authors) shared all their ideas on music style, lyrics etc and decided to submit it. I believe the song has a big potential… It has a universal appeal and gives people an infectious energy. Its hook is memorable!
How are you getting ready for the night of the final?
I have been meeting my group for team-building and also discussing the stage act. We shared all our ideas and engaged everything together. My vocal coach Ms Pamela Bezzina is being very strict with me and taking good care of my vocals. I am also doing circuit training every week to keep fit. We started rehearsals too and till now I’m very satisfied.
How do you plan your stage performance to look like? Are you planning to have any props, backing vocalists, or anyone joining you on stage?
I can’t reveal things now regarding my performance but all I can say is that I will not be alone on stage and I’m planning to deliver a solid performance.
What do you usually do when you are not singing?
Probably, I’ll be at school teaching my primary kids. Besides that I love dancing and even drama.
Why should you be the one to represent Malta in Lisbon?
It would mean the woooooorld to me 🙂 It will be a dream come true… Representing your own country abroad is always a great honor and it will surely open new doors abroad.
The competition is on a very high level this year. But which is that one act that you think is your biggest competition to win?
Every year the competition is on a higher level. It all depends on the final night after we deliver a good performance on stage.
Are you currently involved in any other projects?
Currently, my main focus is Eurovision.
