The 12-year-old girl will represent Spain in their return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with her song 'Marte'.
The Spanish song is about unity, hope and defence of our planet. Marte is composed by Pablo Mora and produced with Manu Chalud in collaboration with Melani herself. Pablo Mora is a singer and songwriter from Madrid who sang as a vocalist for the band Lagarto Amarillo between 2005 and 2019.
Spanish broadcaster RTVE revealed that Melani would represent Spain at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in July. This is the first time the country will have participated in the Contest in 13 years.
Melani Garcia was born in the town of La Eliana in Valencia in 2007. Melani's music career began at the age of 8 when she participated in a local choir and her teacher taught her Mozart’s opera Due pupille amabili. After not being able to get into the Music Conservatory School because of her young age, Melani taught herself classical music.
Her newest single O Sole Mío was released this year. The well-known Neapolitan song has previously been performed by artists such as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Alfredo Kraus.
