As a result of this opportunity, Danica was one of the first female vocalists to be featured in an international compilation, one which would eventually be released both in physical and digital format.

Following this experience, the female vocalist returned to Malta with her head help up high, and made an attempt to get through to the final phases of all leading competitions, succeeding on almost each and every occasion.

In 2016, she returns to the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza 2016 with the song M’Hawnx Isbaħ by Emil Calleja Bayliss and Philip Vella, finishing in 8th place.
