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.
