Kylie has a fresh, expressive, fun and free-spirited outlook on life which ultimately gives her an attitude and vocal style to match accordingly. Kylie started her singing career at just 8 years old with the encouragement of her school music teacher who noticed her natural talent. Throughout the years, she has made a number of television appearances. She also happens to be Klinsmann’s sister (well-known Maltese singer).

She used to compete in the Junior Eurosong Competition from 2003 till 2009 managing to reach the final on each respective occasion, ultimately finishing in third place with the self-written track ‘Everywhere I Go’ at one point. In 2009, Kylie could not return to the Junior Eurosong because of age restrictions and thus she began working on some new material with local songwriters to submit in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest making it through to the selection process with the track ‘Let It Shine’ composed by Andrew Zahra and penned by Joe Julian Farrugia. This was quite a huge achievement noting that Kylie was still sixteen years old.
