ImageChiara (Malta 1998, 2005, 2009) releases new song: Radio International has received news from Malta that Chiara has released a brand new song called "Forget Forgetting Me" which was premiered on Maltese TV last weekend.  Chiara’s new single is her first after signing up with the record label Hands Up Music. The song was written in collaboration of five European songwriters, two Swedish, two Icelandic and one Maltese. The outcome is a powerful pop song perfected with Chiara’s amazing voice. This release is a new beginning for Chiara, as she recently reached an agreement with a new international manager, Valgeir Magnusson who also manages Hera Bjork from Iceland.
Forget Forgetting me’ is a change for Chiara, most famous for her gentle but strong ballads. “For a long time now, I’ve wanted to work more on pop and dance music,” says Chiara about her new song. “I’ve been performing dance music for some time now and wanted to take it further to pop. At this point, I think I’ve found the right genre to express myself. I want things to be fun and playful, but with a sharp message. Women should have their opinions and never let anyone tell them differently. I want to deliver messages like that, mixed with the things I’m interested in at any given moment.”
Chiara will perform with The Yada Dance Company in San Francisco in January 2013. The 8 shows in San Francisco commence Chiara’s collaboration with the dance company, with which she signed a five-year contract earlier this year. The show combines dance and live music performed by Chiara, including her 2005 Eurovision song ‘Angel’. The show, Dance Rush – Feel the Power of Music, was performed in the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The show got a good reception and a standing ovation every night. Therefore it’s very exciting to watch how the show will be received in America, where it will première in the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre Friday, January 11, 2013. The last performance in Malta will be Sunday, 4 November 2012. 
This week Radio International will premier  "Forget Forgetting Me" on the show this week.You can buy the song on ITunes here.
Also there will be new songs by Kaliopi (FYROM 2012) and Juliana Pasha (Albania 2010).
