Ever since he could babble his way through a sentence, Franklin Calleja felt that something great awaited him, and his voice would prove to be one of his greatest assets, going so far as to promise to himself that someday he would make himself known through the media’s various means.
Good things come to those who wait, but instead of waiting Franklin applied himself and underwent several years of training to perfect his singing technique and style; so far everything has worked out for its best and the work accomplished by Franklin has paid off greatly. In 2012 Franklin was proclaimed as the winner of that same year’s edition of NET Television’s hit program “Don’t Stop Me Now” – a competition which proved to be arduous at times.
Inspired by the likes of Whitney Houston, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry and Mariah Carey, Franklin has allowed for these artists to impart on him various styles and genres which have helped him to build a repertoire coloured with versatility.
The arts have become such an integral part of Franklin’s life that he has also incorporated various other forms as leisure activities, such include: drawing and sketching, photography and modelling, and also acting. Fashion and a keen eye for all things avant-garde have made it possible for Franklin to also develop a sense of style which outstands him.
Currently, Franklin is a regular singer on Angie Laus’s immensely popular Sunday afternoon show “Hadd Ghalik!” – entertaining both the studio-audience and televiewers alike with some of the best known pop hits.
The future is ample with opportunity which Franklin is more than willing to take advantage of. He hopes to be able to one day represent our tiny island on the international Eurosong stage, whilst also pursuing a career as a singer in his own right.
