Radio host Martina Żammit married her partner Emma in a beautiful celebration of love yesterday, and the event saw the return of one Malta’s greatest musical classics: Desire by Claudette Buttigieg. 

Claudette took a career into politics, which limited her time from continuing to perform for the Maltese public. So yesterday’s wedding was more than a sweet surprise for all the attendees as they relived the song’s live return.

Maltese media sensation Ben Camille, who was a guest at the wedding, took to his Instagram stories to immortalise the moment it happened as the audience cheered on the music. 

But ‘Desire’ was not the only classic that made a comeback during the night as Chiara, who represented Malta for the Eurovision Song Contest, also took to the stage to bring back some oldies and celebrate the wedding.
