Georgina Abela (born 23 April 1959) is a Maltese singer born in Qormi as Ġeorġina Sammut. She lived in Qormi, Senglea, Floriana and Mellieħa.
Her involment in music kicked off in 1984 when she replaced Overdose band singer Miriam Spiteri. She met composer and New Courey musician Paul Abela and after some years they got married.
She took part in several local festivals especially in Malta Song Contest and later on in the national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest either as a singer, backing vocalist or composer. Her local participations led to singing abroad in various international song festivals.
In 1991 she won the local selection for ESC in a duet with Paul Giordimaina with the song Could It Be. That was Malta's first participation in the Song Contest after an absence of 17 years. The final was held at CineCitta in Rome and the couple finished in 6th place. She returned to the contest the next year as composer of Little Child, in 1996 as backing vocalist in In a Woman's Heart and as lyric writer in Another Summer Night in 2001.
She sang in several musicals held by the Iljieli Mediterranji held in Argotti Gardens in the 80's. These included "Bastilja", Ali Baba and "Taħt Tliet Saltniet".
