Since Monday 28 September, the ESC COVERS website (with our partners Eurovision coverage, EuroVisionMusic, Destination Eurovision and the radio station x5 stereo) started promoting the COVER2COVER concept. It is not a competition anymore but a promotion platform and hopefully South African artists will send covers to us. The 3 entries we received, Helena, Anton and Marle, will be carried over to the coverage. Victor Bush is once again our model. After finishing the photo’s with promotional bags, we return to modeling of t-shirts and he will be holding promo CD’s. Today it is time for one of MALTA. The front of the t-short says Malta but the back says  CHIARA. I am not sure when I got the t-shirt. Chiara represented Malta 3 times at the Eurovision song contest – 1998, 2005 and 2009.  Victor is, therefore, holding the promo singles of all 3 years –

To coincide with ESC Covers going to Malta for the 2016 Eurovision song contest, we will look at a few of the Eurovision songs from Malta that had been covered in South Africa. Unfortunately no Junior Eurovision song from Malta has been covered. The first in the series is the 1998 Maltese entry THE ONE THAT I LOVE from Chiara.

Nedine Blom covered it as HELDER SKYN DIE MAAN (Bright shines the moon).

Nedine is one of just 2 South African singers who have covered Junior Eurovision songs – her one was a Latvian entry
