Charles Mifsud born in Valletta on 21 April,1941, but residing in Birkirkara since childhood. He is a Song writer and a Poet.

Charles is a poet and lyric writer who entered the local scene in 1971, when he wrote the lyrics for Malta’s first ever Eurovision Song Festival: MARIJA L-MALTIJA., sang by Joe Grech becoming the pioneer in this particular field. In the following year, Charles placed second in the contest “A Song for Europe with the lyrics of FEJN TISTRIEĦ IL-QALB, (Composer Mro.Carmelo Zammit while in 1975 he was again the winning author of the very first Maltese song participating in the Eurovision Song Contest with English verse, namely, SINGING THIS SONG, sang by Renato which eventually placed 12th. in the the final classification in Stockholm.

Since then, Charles has written many other locally winning songs both for adults and children competitions with songs like: IŻ-ŻEKŻIEKA, SHALOM, LOVE IS A GAMBLE, A SONG TO SING, IL-BANDA amongst many others.

In 1993, Charles wrote the lyrics for the first pantomime written for childeren IL-ĦANUT TAL-ĠUGARELLI (Composer, Sammy Galea) which was presented on a local television station.

In 2001 and 2010 Charles was commisioned to write two Marian oratories for the occasions of: 1. SULTANA TA’ ĠENSNA written for the fiftieth anniversary of the glorious crowning of the Żabbar Parish titular. 2; OMM ĦELWA U ĦANINA written for the centinary celebrations of the crowning of the titular portrait of Madonna tal-Ħerba, in Birkirkara. Both oratories composed by Mro. Clifford Cauchi.

Besides, Charles has written quite a number of liturġical hymns which are sung in various churches. Other lyrical works include the Maltese Version of the Birkirkara Duke of Connought’s Own Band Club hymn Inno Di Glorja, music by Mro. Raffael Ricci. Eloġju lil Santa Liena u Mulej Ħniena (music by the late Mro.Ronnie Debattista) Hymn for St. Francis School, Msida, the popular march for the feast of Our Lady Of Carmel (Fleur De Lys), the Floriana Football Club anthem amongst many others.

Charles is also an established poet winning various local competitions. His greatest poetical contribution is the first Maltese epic poem, which recounts in detail all that ħappened during the great siege of Malta in 1565. This poem, with more then 900 lines is surely one of his best efforts and is pubblished in one of his books MID-DJARJU TA’ ĠENSNA.
