Justine Bezzina: 'Always be humble and happy with what you have'

Justine Bezzina grew up in Valletta, Malta’s capital city. From the tender age of seven, she started to train her voice, because she showed an interest in singing. This was something that put a smile on her father’s face. Joe Paul Bezzina, an artist who for several years was active in the local music scene; as a singer in the 70s and a broadcaster in the 90s. She started taking part in several local festivals, with great results each time; but the first time she took part in a televised broadcast was during the programme, Pop In! she was selected together amongst others. Two years later, she submitted a song for the Malta Song for Europe, as it was then known, ‘Through Your Eyes’ which made it to the final. This was a dream come true for Justine, but she would re-live that dream once again in 2009 with ‘Rhythm of the Night’ featuring Siconix and ‘Ħa, Ħi, Ħu’ as part of the group The Elements. In the same year she made her debut in the Malta Song for Europe, the Valletta resident also sang Le Ma Nibżax, a duet with Christian Arding during the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza. Shortly after, she took a break from the world of festivals but was present in several private functions, including popular feasts. She returned with an original song in 2019, when she was one of the finalists in the L-Għanja tal-Poplu festival.
