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.

Good morning everyone! I cannot believe that just a few days ago I thought of Daniel and today I see this memory pop up. What a sweet guy you were Daniel!! For years we would randomly meet either at your work place, parties or with a common group of friends. You were kind and funny and were always ready to lend a helping hand. When we called each other for work related matters we always ended up having a chat about this and that. You were a really special guy and you had a heart of gold. I know youre up there smiling xxxxx

Ah!! The pleasures of living on an island where some people, both genders mind you, have some very strange ideas of what women can or cant do! Apparently some commenter on an article posted about the lovely Roberta Metsola, claimed that she cannot possibly raise 4 children and have a full time career! Oh really?? Funny how Miriam Dalli who is also the fantastic mother of  2 children manages a full time career. Oh and by the way... theyve just been voted two of the most influential Maltese MEPS.....just sayin!!! Its amazing how its ok to be biologically engineered to have children, but then how one is expected to not aspire to anything else from the outside world because one becomes a mother. Wow.... just wow!

Clint Cassar QuadIra i agree that women are capable of doing both jobs and raising their kids. But if you have a job that takes most of the hours from your day, and also your partner has the same thing , i personally don't call that being a parent. I know most will not agree but that's my opinion.

Marvic FarrugiaIt seems to me that when we talk about children we always mention the mother. They say: It's takes two to tango. Of course not all fathers are like that. My father was the sweetest gentle being in this world, for me, and I can remember how he was with us when we where young and helping my mother even in the kitchen, he was a very good chef.

Roberta Valletta MalliaNo doubts that Mr. Zammit should mind his own business and that these wonderful ladies are both doing an awesome job. However, please let's not pretend that which is not. Children are not brought up by themselves. These ladies have demanding jobs which require long hours at work and travel. When they are at work they cannot be with their children and vice versa. School hours end way before their working schedule. It is possible that most of the times their children are asleep when they get home. No, no woman is super girl and we should not portray ourselves as such. As a matter of fact they are not solely (together with their spouses) raising their children. They have full-time nannies, even one for each child.

Ira LoscoI don't think that anyone is disputing the fact that parents should both take an active role in raising their own children. And I don't think that we are past the times when children also enjoyed time with their grandparents while their parents are finishing off a shift/their 9-5. Because yes school finishes at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30,3pm .... I don't know about you... but few are the jobs that end at those times, unless you have shifts. Everyone has to make a living and all of us love our children. I'm sure everyone is doing their utmost to find a balance.

These women are on thr spotlight but they are not the only ones. Thumbs up to all those womem who manage to have a family and a career... Lets not forget also those men raising the kids on their own and also having a career

Sue AbelaSpot on, some of us have to work in order to give our children what they need and hopefully manage a holiday with their child once in a while. Other than the fact that we need to work just for our own sanity to keep our brains working. It's not how much time you spend with your children, it's what you do when you're with them. Some women are very capable of working a full time job successfully and giving their children what they need including quality time which let's face it is the most important part

Davinia Mallia PuléFor me the worst thing is the double standards. if a woman doesn't work she is lazy. Or if a single mother whose partner left her high and dry, stays home and lives off benefits then she is a bad mother. So which is it? If a woman is married then she should step aside and leave the man provide, but if she is single then it is ok anzi encouraged for her to work.. xiiuu dwejjjawqqq...and what about financial independence?? What about domestic violence??? Why do people think these women dont leave? Mhux because they Left everything for their family and then have nothing so cant leave the situation. Stupid stupid man to say such a comment. I feel an article coming haha 😂
