Monica Choir’, directed by Sr. Beniamina Portelli in which she spent another 4 years. With this choir she also took part in a concert held in Scotland. Julia’s interests were not just of singing, she undertook piano and music theory lessons up to Grade 5 and Grade 6 respectively, assessed by the Royal Schools of Music. As a soloist she started taking part in many singing competitions and achieved very positive results, one of which led her to songwriter Mark Spiteri Lucas.
Her first collaboration with him and also lyricist Paul Ellul was in 2006 with the song ‘Gahan Tibkix’ which placed third in one of the national Maltese song competitions ‘L-Ghanja tal-Poplu’, being only 16 years old. This song was later translated to Italian by Francesco Bonagura for Julia to take part in the ‘Festival di Maiori’, situated in Naples, Italy and won the Prize for Originality. Her next success was achieved with the song ‘Ice Queen’, also penned by Mark Spiteri Lucas together with Rita Pace. Singing this song, Julia was one of the semi-finalists in the Maltasong for Europe 2007, after being chosen as one of the two finalists in the Opportunity 2 Challenge.
Apart from competitions, Julia enjoys taking part in various shows held by Spiteri Lucas Entertainment including ‘Flashback’, ‘Legends of Music’, ‘Welcome to Hollywood’ and ‘Tribute to the Stars’ alongside many well-known Maltese singers. She is also currently one of the resident singers on the popular Saturday afternoon show ‘Sas-Sitta’, also organized by Spiteri Lucas Entertainment. Julia is a student at the University of Malta, reading for a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Spanish Studies. Read more on Last.fm.
