Watch: Do you remember this? PN leadership hopeful Bernard Grech sings in Air Malta advert

There is a growing interest in the Nationalist Party leadership race.

So far, incumbent Adrian Delia will be facing Bernard Grech, although applications close on Monday and there is still a remote possibility that someone else will go for it.

Grech, a lawyer by profession, was prominent in the battle against the introduction of divorce in 2011, and has featured as a political commentator many times in the past years.


One of his talents is perhaps less known than others, and this is his singing.

Grech had taken part in an Air Malta advert a few years back, singing “O Sole Mio” with tenor Joseph Calleja, which can be viewed below.

The advert shows Grech sitting behind Calleja and, when a young man starts singing the popular Italian song, the PN leadership contender stands up to continue before Calleja takes over with the final phrases of the song.
