Biography

Sarah Bonnici is a Maltese singer. She was born on Gozo May 30 1988. She is the daughter of

Marcel Bonnici, who holds the positions of CEO at Mercury Towers and Ħamrun Spartans. She boasts a Master’s degree in Accountancy.

In the realm of her career, Bonnici received guidance from Miriam Christine from her early days. She made her mark in 2009 by securing the third position at the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which served as the national qualifier for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest that year. Her prowess continued to shine through in 2010 when she clinched the top spot in her age category at the 4th edition of the L-Għanja Tal-Maltin Song Festival with a Miriam Christine-composed piece, also earning the Best Voice title within the festival. Her participation in the same year’s Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest with “Kitty Kitty Cat” landed her in 7th place, which paved the way for her to support Malta’s entry, Nicole Azzopardi, as a dancer at the 2010 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

During her teenage years, Bonnici expanded her musical endeavors beyond Malta, engaging in various international song contests such as the Trixie Festival in Bulgaria, the Carpathians Star Festival in Romania, and the Star to Born Festival in Hungary. She achieved first place in her category at the Ti Amo Festival in Romania, where she also bagged the Original Song Category prize with “Vivrà ancora”.

Bonnici took part in the X Factor Malta in 2018, showcasing her versatile talent. Her journey continued at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2022, where she performed “Heaven” by Aidan and finished 12th in the final. Her musical journey took a promising turn on 18 October 2023, when she was revealed as a contender for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2024 with her song “Loop”, set to perform in the first semi-final show on 27 October. Progressing through the competition, she was announced as a finalist in late November, ultimately winning the jury vote and finishing first overall with 102 points during the final on 3 February 2024. This victory earned her the honor of representing Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024.
