Nine years ago she started her singing career by attending classes in voice technique with qualified tutor Mro Brian Cefai. In July/August 2000 Romina was selected to attend a two-week music conference at the International House Sonnenberg in Germany, where she took part in workshops and concerts as a solo singer and as part of an international choir. Following that she took part as a solo singer and as a member of the Amadeus Chamber Choir locally and abroad in different concerts.
She used to play the guitar and for two years was the main vocalist of the rock band Beate Route. She was also one of the singers in the project Taking Gender Equality to Local Communities organized by the NCPE and co-financed by the community framework strategy on gender equality (2001-2005).
In the year 2003 Romina appeared for the first time in the finals of the Malta Song For Europe with the song Here today gone tomorrow written by Mro Dominic Galea and Professor Joe Friggieri. In the year 2005 she was once again present in the final of the Malta Song For Europe with the song We can do better written by Carm Fenech.
Romina participated and was finalist in well known local festivals namely L-Ghanja tal-Poplu, The International TV Song Festival and Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza with songs written by Philip Vella & Charles Flores, Ray Agius & Godwin Sant, Clinton Paul, Augusto Cardinali, Dominic Galea & Ray Mahoney and Carm Fenech. In 2004 she obtained third place with the song Sahhartni written by Augusto Cardinali and Clinton Paul.
After establishing herself in Malta, participation in festivals abroad, was Romina’s top priority. This gave her great satisfaction in these last years. In July 2003 Romina placed third in the festival L’Anziano nella societa… with the song Dentro gli occhi degl’anziani written by Mro Franco Matricano and Mro Francesco Bonagura. Following that in August 2003 Romina obtained first and best interpretation in the festival La vela d’oro with the song Senza Finzioni written by Mro Paul Abela and Mro Francesco Bonagura. In the same year she also obtained first place in the Premio Nazionale Artemare 2003 with the song E… Sapro written by Italian composers Mro Franco Matricano and Frabon.
After these great experiences Romina was asked to go back to Italy and was offered the opportunity to work with a music house in Milan, something that Romina regretfully had to ignore as she was half way with her studies for the degree in the Bachelors of Education (Hons) at the University of Malta.
In August 2008 Romina was invited again to represent Malta in the Premio Nazionale Artemare where she obtained the second place with the song Il gioco delle onde written by Mro Paul Abela, Massimo Roversi and Frabon. Between January and July of the year 2008 Romina had the opportunity to work on a new look and style during the Malta Hit Song festival on One tv with the song An Illusion written by Ivan Debattista and Natasha Turner.
