Jessika was born on February 27, 1989, and is a Maltese singer-songwriter and actress.
She was discovered on Malta national television in 2008 during the Malta Song for Europe Festival, "Tangled", her debut song, hit the airwaves some weeks later followed by "Sweet Temptation", which placed 2nd in the Malta Hit Song Festival.
In June 2009 Jessika went on tour in England. She started her first debut gig at Roger Courtney’s open mike music club in Portsmouth. Her repertoire was so impressive that she was asked to perform again in the same pub a week later and offers to do other gigs began rolling in.
In the summer of 2009, she signed a 10-day vocal program camp in Hollywood. Her journey started in Millbrae where Jessika gave her first performance only one day after landing in the United States. Shortly afterward she headed down to Los Angeles for an intensive vocal training programme with leading vocal coach Seth Riggs after having been accepted into Riggs’ Speech Level Singing programme. Riggs has worked with some of the world’s top artists, including Faith Hill, Ricky Martin, Michael Bolton, Kelly Clarkson and many more. During the camp, Jessika learned about other aspects of the music industry namely marketing and networking strategies. After completing her training, Jessika carried on to her next commitment, where she gave a live performance in popular Anaheim, which is located exactly next to the world-famous Disneyland.
