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.

Dear Nirvana, 

There isnt a day which goes by when I dont think of you. I wish I could pick up the phone and give you a call, like I used to, just to see how youre doing, to talk about anything going on in our lives and to have a laugh at some funny incident. I miss your wise words and your way of saying things that needed to be said. I miss how your confidence as you entered a room mesmerized those around you. You are one friend the guy up there took away from us too soon! We all love you and we know that you are always amongst us. 

Happy Birthday Fellow Leo! 
Im sure youre loving the spotlight in Heaven today and having yourself a great party xxxx 
Love you x

Marvic FarrugiaDear Ira, I would like to tell you a story that a specially friend of mine told me and this friend heard it from a Navaho Indian lady. The story goes like this. There was a beautiful garden and on entering the gardener noticed that on one side of the garden there were three pots of flowers that need to be seen. On approaching the pots closer the gardener noticed that two pots of flower where not so good, however on examining the third pot he noticed that it has bloomed and became more beautiful then the rest. So the gardener said: This is the most beautiful flower pot that has bloomed well in the whole garden. I think I should take it away and put it with the rest of the other flowers that has made this garden more beautiful. Have a nice day Ira.

Good morning from the studio chill out room. A warm tea and ready for vocals! Hope everyone is well and enjoying the beach, or a relaxing morning. Those of you at work its soon lunch hour, so that at least should make your day brighter. Those whose day is sucking a bit, I hope it gets better 😁😁😁😁

Good morning to you all! This photo came up in my memories. One of the most memorable performances at Teatru Unplugged. Besides reminding me of my lovely friend Nirvana Azzopardi, it also reminded me how honored I was to share the stage with The Characters and Rifffs frontman Ray Mercieca, who is undoubtedly one of Maltas finest musician/song writers!

A video of a naked woman, seemingly disorientated and afraid in Paceville (foreign it seems, as she is heard yelling "Basta") is now doing the rounds on Facebook as policemen and health officers try to restrain her. I really do hope she is being taken care of and is recovering from whatever has happened to her. These videos are alarming as thy show humans in a really vulnerable state. I keep thinking of her and hoping that she's ok. ... See MoreSee Less

Christopher CamilleriThis is against media's ethics and human rights (privacy ought to be respected) The media mustn't share this sort of sensitive cases. The woman looks utterly distorted and disturbed which makes her even more vulnerable. Care is ultimately required for this woman's mental health. what's most important at this stage is her wellbeing and not making such public nothing through this will help essentially will make things even worse.

Schevon CamilleriI actually cried watching it, how sad poor woman I do hope she is ok and recovers but the most disgusting thing is the truck driver shouting at her for banging the door, the police officers shouting 'get out' and the paramedics stood there doing jack shit when the 2 bin men and hats off to them went in and handled her and got her out!! Unfortunately it may be dugs or mental illness but people like them must be trained to deal with such sensitive situations!!

Etta MizziTo be fair the police were not being unkind and the paramedics stepped in when it was safe for them to do so. If more had approached her, she would probably have hurt herself even more. Those are blades in there.

Sarah McGourtySome peoples comments on said video have been shocking and very saddening to say the least, however I found this, a little reminder (because I needed it and maybe someone else will) that there is still plenty of people out there who are full of compassion and empathy, this thread alone demonstrates that, as well as the two gentlemen who actually got into the truck and got her out and hopefully all the wonderful people who will help her recover.
