PBS has presented its entry to the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest Walk On Water, sung by Ira Losco.

The song was revealed as part of TVM’s evening news broadcast Thursday night.

Walk On Water was selected after international and Maltese jury voting during February and March. Juries in 13 European countries, comprising of music industry professionals, listened to 10 songs (nine new compositions, plus Chameleon), together with a panel of music experts from Malta. Walk On Water was the overwhelming favourite to represent Malta in Stockholm.

The video for Ira’s new song was filmed last week at the Malta National Aquarium, and across several locations in Gozo. The song was officially submitted to the European Broadcast Union before last weekend’s deadline.

The song has been composed by Lisa Desmond, Tim Larsson, Tobias Lundgren, Molly Pettersson-Hammar and Ira Losco.

Ira Losco will perform the song Walk On Water for Malta in the First Semi-Final of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, which will take place in Stockholm on Tuesday 10th May.
