“I started piano and music theory lessons when I was seven. I attended professional schools and achieved quite a number of certifications with regard to music, acting, singing and drama.

I have taken part in various festivals, both locally and overseas. Last August, I took part in the Oltreoceano Festival in Palermo where I placed second. Last September, I won the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza 2014, taking part for the first time in the established category.

My latest singing achievement was as one of the singers in the Beatles&Oldies in Concert event which was organised by Spiteri Lucas Entertainment. Recently, I was informed that I am one of the finalists of L-Ghanja tal-Poplu 2015, I’m so excited about how things are going and I look forward to more opportunities where I can compete with other amazing artists.

In 2012, I was given the opportunity to take part in a local TV series, D.R.E.A.M.S. where I was given the role of Diane. After D.R.E.A.M.S, Rewind Productions offered me a role in the series Katrina, where I interpreted the character of Claire. At the moment, I’m taking part in another local TV series,” explained Michela.

Tell us about your journey to become a singer and also an actress

I come from a family of talented musicians and singers, so basically I grew up always listening to music, mostly jazz, blues and soul. I have always believed that music was, is and will always be my first love and I thank God for giving me this beautiful gift with which I can entertain others.

Acting is another passion that I enjoy with all my heart. As with singing and dancing, I have attended theatre schools from when I was very young. It was in the year 2012 and my involvement D.R.E.A.M.S which led me to consider an acting career.

When it comes to fashion, how would you define your style?

I have always tried to follow fashion, but at the end I choose my own style.  As an artist, I need to wear appropriate clothing for my performances, depending on the music genre. I am in love with chunky accessories and handbags. I really like to wear American make-up.

What is your favourite thing in your bedroom, and why?

There is definitely more than one thing! My CD player, microphone and photos and trophies which remind me of each and every music-related experience I have had so far.  I have other gifts and photos which remind me of family and real friends who have always been there to support me in everything.

In your opinion, what is the problem with the world today?

I think that selfishness, jealousy and pride is directing the world to a life without values.

What would you do if you were a magician?

If I were a magician and had the power to terminate something, I would definitely be the first one to switch war into peace.
