In 2014 she also joined the Animae Gospel Choir. Amber is also training to be a primary school teacher as she loves working with children.

2015

Eurovision Song Contest

Due to a change in the rules and regulations for the competition announced by the Maltese broadcaster, PBS, for the first time the artist, author and composer of the winning entry were permitted to change parts of the winning song or select a new song entirely.[3] It was later confirmed on 7 March 2015 that Amber's winning song, "Warrior" would indeed be modified, and the new version along with its music video was premièred on 9 March 2015.[4]

Amber failed to qualify to the final and finished in 11th place out of 17 countries with a total of 43 points.
