Firelight – Coming Home
Composers: Richard Edwards Micallef
The Maltese entry was chosen through a national selection, Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2014. The selection contained one semifinal with twenty entries, and then a final with top 14 from the semifinal. The winner was chosen by an expert jury and public televoting.
Firelight is a band made by vocalist Richard Edwards. He is joined by his family, sister Michelle Mifsud and brothers Wayne William and Daniel Micallef. The last bandmembers are outside of the family, named Tony Polidano and Leslie Decesare. It is Richard that is the big star, and he started off his career in the British X-Factor in 2005, where he made it to the final 80 contestants. He has later been a part of a rock band, produced music with his brother Wayne, and entered the national Eurovision selection in Malta several times earlier.
