Born in Malta in 1992, Thea has been studying vocal technique and interpretation under the direction of soprano Gillian Zammit. She has accompanied the North West Choir from the UK as a soloist whilst performing an oratory at the Anglican Church in Valletta. She is currently a member of Enkor, a gospel classical choir, with whom she also performs as soloist. She has also studied musical theatre at Masquerade Theatre School for ten consecutive years, participating in various productions including ‘The King and I’ and’ Beyond the Barriquades’ at the Manoel Theatre Valletta. She has obtained qualifications in Musical Theatre, Voice Techniques and Drama from TrinityGuildhall College.

Thea was also a student at Sylvia Young Theatre School in London for two consecutive summers where she was vocally coached by Mr. Ray Lamb during which time she was also handpicked to record at the West End as backing vocalist for Paco Pena, a leading Spanish performer. Having auditioned for the British ‘Voice of Tomorrow’ contest with hundreds of British performers, Thea managed to make it with the final thirty contestants during which time she had the opportunity to attend ten sessions of training in Musical Theatre by leading tutors at the West End. Her favorite genre of music includes classical and semi classical as well as songs from musicals. Her dream is to perform at the West End in London.

Recently Thea sang with famous Italian singer, Gigi D’Alessio on the opening night of his World tour in Rome and was again invited to sing in Milan, where this time Gigi accompanied Thea on his piano and let her sing one of his favorite songs as a soloist.

On the 20th of February 2010, Thea won the Malta EuroSong contest, giving her a ticket to represent Malta in the Eurovision Song contest 2010 which will be held in Oslo, Norway. Thea will be representing Malta in the first Eurovision Song Contest Semi-final on the 25th of May with the song ‘My Dream” composed by Jason Cassar with lyrics written by Sunny Aquilina.

This hybrid system will be implemented in semi-finals for 2010.
  • As of 2010, the country which has entered the longest with no wins to their name is Portugal. They started entering in 1964, and are still awaiting their first win.
  • Finland never won the Eurovision Song Contest before 2006. In 2006 Finland took part for the 40th time.
  • In 2009 Malta is presenting its 23rd entry.
