MALTA – Just days after winning the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, Christabelle has been appointed Special Ambassador for Mental Health of the President’s Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society. In an event held at San Anton Palace today, the President bestowed the title onto the singer with the belief that Christabelle will be able to shed more light on this often unseen problem.
Christabelle won the MESC with her song Taboo, which deals with the ‘taboo’ of speaking about mental health. Her song, filled with metaphors related to mental illnesses, features lyrics like “And I know, and I know, and I know that you see my life in foreign eyes,” and “Sticks and stones will break my soul/Gotta be your own miracle.”
Christabelle said that she hopes that her music will be used by anyone suffering from a mental illness not to lose hope, and to push them towards seeking help because their voice will be heard.
She had said that her message was one of hope for anyone who is going through a difficult time, and that she was proud to be an ambassador of such a positive message.
In her new official role as Special Ambassador for Mental Health, Christabelle will be able to take a more hands-on approach, inspiring others not just with her music, but with her work.
Proud to have appointed @christabelleofficial as an Ambassador of the President’s Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society for Mental Health. Apart from being blessed with talent, I truly believe that Christabelle, through her song and its powerful message of hope and empowerment, is going to be doing a lot of good, in helping those who are suffering from mental health issues. My heartfelt congratulations to Christabelle and the team behind “Taboo” and best of luck in Portugal where I am sure you shall give the best visibility to Malta @eurovision
