Robert Galea is a recently ordained Deacon and is currently studying for the priesthood in Melbourne, Australia after beginning seminary formation in Malta in 2003, his home country. Robert has been dubbed the “The Singing Seminarian” by local and international press. He is a singer and songwriter with a comparable international fan base. Apart from a series of recordings and CD releases, Robert has also written a number of songs for various campaigns and international conferences.
After being selected to sing in the international version of the official World Youth Day song “Receive the Power” along with pop idol Guy Sebastian and acclaimed soprano Amelia Farrugia amongst others, Galea entered the realm of the cast of musicians having performed in some key events before an estimated 500,000 pilgrims in Sydney.
Now, after the release of his latest album “What a Day” (2008), following the success of his debut album “Closer” (2006), Rev. Rob\'s passion is to draw others to the heart of God. He believes that music is an important instrument in helping God\'s people understand the need for intimacy with their God. In all this, whilst greatly appreciating his gift of music, Robert recognises that before everything he is a follower of Christ, a deacon and only then, a musician. Robert is currently working on a new album due for release in late 2010.
