BiographyIra Losco

Ira Losco is one of the biggest names in Maltese music,
and her career spanning over 15 years has seen her win more than 20 music awards.

Ira has twice opened concerts for Sir Elton John and has performed alongside Katie Melua,
Maroon 5, Akon, Enrique Iglesias, Ronan Keating, Tokio Hotel, Gigi D`Alessio and many more.
She has also had a string of chart topping singles, including “What I’d Give,” “The Person I Am,”
and “Me Luv U Long Time.” Her fifth album will be released this year.

Of course Ira is also no stranger to Eurovision, having come within 12 points of winning
the Eurovision Contest in Tallinn. She returns to the Eurovision stage 14 years later
in Stockholm with a powerful song, “Walk on Water”.

Beyond music, Ira is an advocate for LGBTI rights, supports anti-bullying initiatives and campaigns
to help teenagers protect themselves from revenge porn. In 2008 she was awarded a prestigious
medal by the President of Malta in recognition of her outstanding achievements.

LatestNews

Ira Losco was feeling concerned.

Must we wake up every day to some sort of news of death/terrorism? Every day there's news of tragedy, political unrest, people fleeing their countries. It has gone on for years and years. What I find rather unfortunate is that it is the innocent who are most often attacked. It is "the people" who are the victims in almost every single situation. Without sounding callous, it is hardly ever the "real problem" ( person/people in high places/ governments) who are targeted. What does this say about life in general? The higher you ride on your horse, the less you care about who you are meant to protect? The more immortal others make you? My heart goes out to victims everywhere and anywhere of any injustice they are suffering. These aren't good times to be living in!

Ira LoscoBesides the fact that fear is being instilled even in places, during events where people should feel happiness and enjoyment. What disgusting times.

Frederick BrincatIts not a problem Ira, the crowds are too busy and taken with stupid things to feel the impact of more important chaos surrounding them, give them a logo to wear, a slogan to repeat, and an image to imitate, and everything will be fine as long as they ignore reality.

Joseph A. BartoloThat's because it is the people in high places who are behind these atrocities in most cases, those whom we think are protecting us, but in reality, are protecting their positions of power, by keeping us in a state of fear, ignorance and servitude. They are known as the Cabal or Illuminati to the so-called conspiracists.

I dont think Ive ever worked on a greater number of tracks in preparation for my upcoming album!! Furthermore I will also be doing some interesting collaborations,infact my next single will feature another young artist. The other collab. which I had promised on Xarabank was with our prodigy Destiny Chukunyere, but thats for a later release! From humble beginnings at my MUSIC 4 LIFE concert at MFCC, winning JEV to her amazing time to shine tonight on ITVs Britains Got Talent! Go girl! Love you loads xxx

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there. Young and old, those expecting and those who sometimes feel tired of the role. To all you strong women out there who juggle and multi task. Its exhausting but its so well worth it. Thank you to my mother who has raised me to believe that I can achieve what I want by working hard and re inventing myself. She was a working mother for over 30 years and a great inspiration to me. Sean and I are enjoying every day with our son Harry and we feel blessed and thankful for him. Being a mother rocks!

At this time last year, emotions were running high. It was hard enough getting here with 43 competing countries & it still is for a tiny island ,so I didnt expect much after that hurdle. Seeing Malta 3rd place on the Final night on the score board ,filled me up with the same emotions I felt back in 2002. Unexpected, proud & equally humbled. Its an honour #MALTA #UNITED #MUSIC #LOVE
