She always described music as a “need” and not only as a “dream”. She feels the need to express her feelings while singing and playing different instruments by ear.
Each instrument gives her a different feeling according to which feeling she needs to express. KEL’s motto “Music Is Fluid” started when she realized that it’s difficult to express different feelings when playing always the same genre. "It’s wonderful to discover new genres, new worlds."
In 2018, KEL auditions for X Factor Malta and although she had nodules in her vocal chords, she made it to the Six Chair Challenge. During her journey in X Factor, she met new friends with whom she started collaborations and many fans all over europe!
