Valentina Farrugia (born 7 October 1994) is a young Maltese singer.
Born into a musical family, daughter of writer/songwriter and broadcaster Joe Julian Farrugia, she was always surrounded by music and was often chosen among her school colleagues to sing in musicals and other school events.
She also used to co-present with her sister Clara Farrugia on television starting off at the age of seven with a game and talent show for children Dr Peel.
Wishing to pursue a singing career, she started taking vocal lessons under the tutorship of Doreen Galea, later moving to classical training at Beatrice Brockdorff’s and then under Marvic Lewis Indigo for a jazzy touch.

She was a finalist in the category for established singers in Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza 2011 with song Int Biss and in the 2014 edition with song Hemm Int.

Libran by sign, Valentina is a very caring youth who loves arts with an attention to detail. She is always in search of adventure and new experiences.
