Malta: Ira Losco Keeps Options Open

Recognition is the key for success and if this is achieved in a gradual manner, therefore it becomes even more positive. This is surely the main element why Ira Losco has become the artist she has today because she has used every experience in her favour and ultimately created a music niche which not many tend to have. Development is equally important and together with Howard Keith of Jagged House, there was the creation of a brand, a true artist with a pop/rock vibe with the possibility of expansion above and beyond. It is quite hard to recall that this individual also represented Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2002 but with the submissions for the local showcase coming to an end earlier this week, she was a guest on Bla Agenda hosted by Norman Hamilton on ONE Television.

There were a number of issues dealt with in the programme last night which somewhat embarked on combining the arts with more economic issues but nevertheless having Ira as the spokesperson for music was indeed fit considering her astonishing success both locally and even in foreign waters. When asked about the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, she was relatively positive saying that it is an intriguing means of exposure and that it would secure a career in the country with whatever happens but apart from that, she went onto add that some of the international collaborations nowadays are leading to foreign contacts. The renowned performer was also asked point blank with regards to the possibility of her return to the competition especially after achieving runner-up success in 2002 and she was even more positive than in recent years saying that she would definitely take up her new style if the right song came along with a typical 'never say never' response. The platform is definitely an intriguing one considering the success that latest acts seem to be achieving following the competition.

It will be interesting to see whether Ira Losco does intend to come back in the years to come especially with a funky type of sound, one which has become extremely popular with the public. She is currently focusing on finishing the vocals on her upcoming album which up to this point in time remains unnamed but also focusing on the Bay Music Award where she is nominated for the Best Artist category as well as the Best Song for her comeback track What I'd Give. The editorial team of would like to wish Ira Losco the very best of luck with her upcoming endeavours and also hope that you stayed tuned for all of the latest news about the 2013 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest as soon as it becomes available. Let us know whether you'd want her to return to the biggest music competition in Europe.
