Amira receives Giuseppe Sciacca Award 2014

Amira is the winner of the International Giuseppe Sciacca Award 2014, thanks to her extraordinary skills in the area of music and singing. On November 8th 2014, this award will be handed out during a ceremony in de great hall of the Pontifical Urbaniana University in Vatican City.

The Giuseppe Sciacca Award was created in 2001 by the International Association of Culture and Voluntary Work Uomo e Società (men and society) and is named after the young student of architecture, Giuseppe Sciacca, who was -during his short life- noted for his sporting activities and social concern.

The Pontifical Urbaniana University was founded by Pope Urban VIII in 1627, but only received the title ‘Pontifical’ in 1962 from Pope john XXIII.

Again standing ovation for Amira’s O Mio Babbino Caro

And once again Amira’s interpretation of O Mio Babbino Caro caused a frenzied crowd and a standing ovation. This happened in Magdeburg (Germay), where she gave a sparkling performance in the saturday-evening TV-show Willkommen bei Carmen Nebel, which was broadcast live by both ZDF in Germany as well as ORF in Austria.

With this fabulous performance, interview and her recent album release in Germany, Amira now is definitely gaining foothold at our eastern neighbours.
