18 year-old Michela will sing for Malta at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. The resident of the tiny island of Gozo, won the final of X-Factor, and attended the Ultimate Artist development program in London, where she worked with Rihanna's producer.

Michela describes herself as an average teenager. She explains: "... but when I start singing, it’s as if my voice takes over my entire being. Aretha Franklin once said that you sing soul with your whole body. I know exactly what she means." 

 

Chameleon

English
I'm bluer than the ocean
I'm golden like the rising sun and
I'm red with hot emotion
And when they try to ho oh ld me down
Inside a box i find my way out
I'm keepin' it in motion

When life brings me trouble this I know
I never walk away no no never walk away no no no no
We are technicolour watch us go
And we never walk away no no
Stay with me now

Chame chameleon
Chame chamelon
Chame chameleon
Yalla yalla yalla la la la
Chame chameleon
Chame chamelon
Chame chameleon
Yalla yalla yalla la la la

The grass is always greener
When you love me deeper darlin'
I can be your jungle
So when they try to ho oh ld me down
Inside a box I find my way out
I'm keepin' it emotion

When life brings me trouble this I know
I never walk away no no never walk away no no no no
We are technicolor watch us go
And we never walk away no no
Stay with me now

Chame chameleon chame chameleon
Chame chameleon
Yalla yalla yalla la la la

Give me water I’m a swimmer
Give me fire I’m a fighter
Give me love I’m your lover
Make me cry I'll be a river
Take my heart I'll be a giver
I can change like the weather

When life brings me trouble this I know
I never walk away no no never walk away no no
We are technicolour watch us go
And we never walk away no no
Stay with me now

Give me water I’m a swimmer
Give me fire I’m a fighter
Give me love I’m your lover
When life brings me trouble this I know
I never never walk away never walk away
