MALTA – It is no secret that the Eurofans favourite for the Maltese national final is Ira Losco, although we still haven’t heard neither of her songs. Ira Losco with the 2nd place in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest sounds already in the island of knights, the suitable representative for Stockholm but still we have a long way until we see her on stage as the MESC 2016 competition will be hard and as we all know many times, unpredictable. Ira Losco though made a statement on Facebook regarding her qualification to the next phase of the national selection.
IRA LOSCO STATEMENT
My words “never say never” , have never been more befitting than today. Yes, my name is on the ‘Malta Eurovision 2015’ list and I’m rather excited about it. 2 songs which I also co-wrote have been shortlisted. Truthfully, following ‘The Fire’ , I’m also super excited about my new album which will be my 5th studio album. Guarding it as my treasure , I want to give it all the opportunities it deserves regardless of what happens from here on. The timing is right and it feels right .
I am thankful for all the support shown and although it’s a cliché to say, I have no shame in saying that you are the best fans any artist can ever dream of. I bow down and I promise to reciprocate back with endless dedication, more hard work and passion.
