In 2006, she was offered to sing in a duet with Paul Giordimiana for
Malta's section for the Eurovision entry. The song was called Time,
and this was Morena’s first taste of the Malta Song for Europe
festival. They placed 9th, but caught the bug and set her sights on
getting to the Eurovision Song Contest.
Meanwhile she took part in several local TV shows, and started a collaboration
with composer/producer Philip Vella. In 2007 Philip introduced her to
lyricist Gerard James Borg who immediately was very impressed by Morena,
and the successful song-writing duo decided to invest their time and
energy in the Mediterranean Volcano.
VODKA, was the result of one of this three-way collaboration and soon
enough Morena was recording in the studios. A few months later she was
performing on the Malta Song for Europe stage, belting out the catchy
song which she prefers to describe as progressive pop. She won the festival,
winning the people’s hearts on the way, and now she is ready to
VODKA her way to the Eurovision Song Contest.
