MALTA – Singer Ira Losco paid a courtesy visit to the Prime Minister Joseph Muscat at the Auberge de Castille. Accompanied by PBS Chief Executive, Anton Attard and her manager Howard Kieth Debono, Ira said that she is honoured to represent Malta in a festival that attracts a huge audience not only in Europe but also in other continents, such as the United States, Asia and Australia. Ira added that the festival offers a unique opportunity so that Maltese singers can show their talents and represent Malta in the most possible professional way.
Prime Minister Muscat congratulated the singer for her performance at the Eurovision. While thanking the team that worked with Ira in Malta and Sweden, he described Ira as an example for the way she works in favour of equality and minority rights, both with words and her action. He said that it is not only the talent that stands out in the signer but her qualities that raise and strengthen Malta’s reputation in Europe and around the world.
Speaking to journalists, Ira Losco said that Malta’s result at the Eurovision was a very good one when one considers the high points given by the jury in the first semi-final and the third placing when the televoting votes are added to. She said that the contest has become very relevant and every Maltese artist should aspire to participate. Asked whether she will consider another participation in the festival, Ira said that it is too early to decide, but stated she does not exclude anything because the Eurovision is a fantastic experience. She thanked PBS for the work done and the Maltese people for their support during the experience.
