Other than that, in November of 2014 she flew to England to take part in Britain’s Got Talent and passed to the second phase of the competition.

In July of 2015 as well as 2016 she took part in the Festival La Voce Del Sud in Sicily in which she passed to the finals.

In July of 2016 she was one of the finalists in the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016 with the song When We Were Young originally by Adele, while in August of 2016 and 2017 together with many other Maltese students she went to London for an intensive music course called Ultimate Artists led by Joshua Alamu De Cadenex in which she learnt a lot.

Other than just singing, Kaylie has presented a number of shows especially those organised by Ally El Entertainment with Eliana Gomez Blanco and has presented the Bognor Talent Show in Buġġibba twice, has sang on Xarabank as well and been a guest singer in Magic Melody. In 2017 she also acted in Isaac Mercieca’s music video for his original song I Never Knew, where she played the lead love interest.

In 2018, she auditioned for the first season of X Factor 2018 with the song You Don’t Own Me and she kept on going in the competition up until the Chair Challenge. Other than that, in that same year, she was also a backing vocalist for Eliana Gomez Blanco in L-Għanja tal-Poplu 2018 with the song Kliem (Words).

In 2019 she also started studying learning the ukulele so that she can start writing her own songs and study anither instrument, and she started to take part in musicals and plays that were put up at Junior College, like when she sang Never Enough in the Christmas Cabaret and presented at the international festival called Ħolqa, as well as being part of the Committee of Teatru Kulleġġ, which is a theatre group at Junior College. In the start of 2020 she took part in the Soiree with the name of Cinder at Junior College in which she was the vocal coach for the actors that took part, as well as being part of the production team behind the show.

It’s Kaylie’s wish that she achieves success in the future with her music as well as wanting to be of help even to certain people through the message in the songs that could have different social themes.

When she grows up, other than wanting to be in the music scene she wishes to become an English teacher as well as a theatre producer.
