Veronica Rotin is a young Maltese and Australian singer. She was born in Malta and then lived in Melbourne, Australia for a few years before returning to Malta. She is another of the incredibly talented singers to emerge from the legendary La Voix Academy in Malta under the tutelage of the amazing Gillian Attard. At the age of 9 years, Veronica made it to the finals of the Italian TV talent show Io Canto (I Sing) in 2013. The following year she entered the World Festival Association's (WAF) XI International contest for young talents Lake Pearls, held in FYR Macedonia, in which she not only won her category but was also awarded the Grand Prix for the whole event and has been invited to perform at next summer's WAF event in Russia. She performed as a part of the interval act at the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC) in Malta.
Mamma Knows Best was originally recorded by Jessie J on her debut 2011 album Who Are You (You can watch Jessie J‘s version here). It is about a relationship where the singer has been treated badly but has had enough and put an end to it; not taking life seriously and using humour as therapy. Here Veronica sings the song with a power and energy that makes the original seem like elevator music, and that is without taking her age into account. This recording was made at the 2014 Lake Pearls Festival and is 1 of the performances that won Veronica the Grand Prix.
