Gaia Cauchi is eleven years old and comes from the small rural village of Mġarr, Malta. She started singing when she was just two and a half years old. 

The young artist is no stranger to singing contests and talent shows both in Malta and internationally and has received several impressive titles. Gaia has placed first in the international junior selection at the popular Italian song contest San Remo Junior and consequently she has been honoured with the International Achievement Award at the 2013 Malta Music Awards. 

Gaia has also taken part in the national Italian television talent show called Italian Talent Lab where once again she was crowned the overall winner. She has also achieved an outstanding success in the Italian television show called Ti Lascio Una Canzone. During her adventure on the TV show, Gaia sang with famous Italian singers including Alex Britti, Alessandra Amoroso, Little Tony and world renowned Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja. More recently, Gaia triumphed in the prestigious Italian television show called Una Stella Sta Nascendo. Her song Noti u Kliem was adapted to the Italian language and recorded in Rome.

Gaia will be representing Malta with the song ‘The Start’ at the next Junior Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Kyiv, Ukraine on the 30th November 2013. Vocal coach Gillian Attard will be supervising Gaia’s vocal performance throughout the event.

Lyrics of The Start

Came into my life, shining so bright and now, all is right. My dreams will be heard, my voice and my words and I, will rise. Cause I have this voice inside That I don't want to hide But people told me I can't do it I know that I’l get through it I know that I can make it I'll reach for the stars Right from the start, I felt it in my heart I knew that deep inside We'll never be torn apart And if I dream it If I believe it I'll achieve it I can make it far Today will be the day, I am here to stay and I, won't be afraid. Keep my feet right on the ground, and I won't lose my sound No I, won't look down. Cause I have this voice inside That I don't want to hide But people told me I can't do it I know that I’l get through it I know that Ii can make it I'll reach for the stars Right from the start, I felt it in my heart I knew that deep inside We'll never be torn apart And if I dream it If I believe it I'll achieve it I can make it far Right from the start Deep in my heart I knew that i'll go far Cause music is my love if I believe it, I will achieve it I can reach the stars.
