Tista' taqra bil- Malti.
Sunday 3rd May will see Malta’s festival of gratitude, in support of the health care workers, other front liners and volunteers who are involved in the fight against the medical and social problems brought on by Covid-19.
Details on this concert were revealed by one Malta Together’s team, Xandru Grech during 103 Breakfast on the radio station 103 Malta’s Heart on Friday.
Inspired by Lady Gaga’s ‘One World: Together at Home’ concert, the ‘Festival of Gratitude and Inspiration’ aims to provide entertainment for everyone at home, while showing gratitude to all the front liners. Malta Together’s founder, Mark Weingard reached out to Ira Losco and Joseph Calleja to support this initiative and both of them embraced the idea wholeheartedly.
“This virtual festival in association with Malta Together is our way to say thank you to all those on the front line, the nurses the doctors and the supermarket staff, literally being there day after day for the benefit of the whole country. This is our way of saying thank you to all of you and I do hope you enjoy the performance” says Joseph Calleja.
Ira Losco said “I am very excited that we can help raise the spirits of the people of Malta and to express our gratitude to all the front liners. Through this concert, we will raise awareness of all the fantastic work that is being performed by voluntary organisations, from providing food to vulnerable families to assisting people faced with fear and depression. We will also be spreading the message that we must stay home to stay safe, while ensuring that we keep busy and happy.”
