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.

Ira LoscoIt's so nice to read your comments and to see that YES a great majority do not have Neanderthal thoughts about career women or women on stage after having children. Thank you for your kind words and continuous support x

Carina Den FinaLast year the Swedish party, Christian democrats, got a new leader and she was pregnant at the time. Media asked her "how are you planning on combining your new job with motherhood?" She answered: "I know a lot of men who have managed just fine, so I don't think it will be a problem." And it hasn't been...

Gaby Galea GusmanYou can still be a working mum and have it all. Being a mum does not mean you have to give up your career or the things you love. It's a matter of having a balance in life. Time with my daughter is based on quality not quantity even though I work . God bless Ira and you go girl!!!

Cristabelle Cristina TaboneIra your life is yours..you decide how and what you do and you have every right to choose who are the people who play a significant role in your life...maternity is one's choice and others' experiences are subjective to them...This is 2016 not the dark ages..though history indicates that even back then there were many strong women who dealt with the usual glass ceiling/sticky floors and stereotypical perceptions, barriers and expectations which although are led by patriarchy were and still are reinforced by women as well. A woman's life is her choices!

Sharon Ellul BoniciI had three kids and could not afford maternity leave with my career. So after birth I went back to continue my work. I was a happy active mum with 3 toddlers juggling between meetings and rushing home to breastfeed. Pregnancies and Motherhood is a blessing and not a curse and we all deal with it differently and also according to our own circumstances. So Ira do it your own way as best you can and I'm sure you're gonna be one hell of a busy sexy mama! Ignore the experts and the critics, only u know what's best!

Teresa Wallace CamilleriYour life is yours to decide the path to take. Now a days women have a career after motherhood. There is no difference between a woman behind an office desk or an artist. I am sure your child and private life comes first and you have a family who support you 200% sure the baby will be spoiled rotten by all. So don't mind jealous hearted people who have nothing to do with their lives. God bless you and for now take it slow good time to write good music and you will be back stronger than ever

Good morning everyone!! Had to share this post by my good friend Moira. I must add to it. Please only commit to an animal IF you have time to dedicate. Don't adopt an animal and leave it alone all day and in the evening when you go out. Yes an animal needs attention and dedication. As Maltese would say Intrigu but one which you gladly take on if you DO love animals dearly. Just look at the look on these faces!!! Priceless :-) the happiness of being integrated within a family is so clear.

Sadly that, that not all people understand this thing - no matter what happens, no matter what will happen in future, our animals will love us. But I can't say same with people love.
