Pirates of the Sea members Roberto Meloni and Aleksandra Kurusova have joined forces with two other Latvian celebrities to record a Christmas song for charity purposes. “Positive thoughts and attitude are contagious” says Roberto Meloni, two times Eurovision Song Contest participant for Latvia.

The charity project "Stelle di Natale" (Christmas Stars) team consists of Roberto, Aleksandra who are known as the members of Pirates of the Sea, as well as Laura Kosite (Roberto's partner at "Strictly come dancing") and a Latvian singer Ralfs Rubenis. Roberto, while hosting a TV show "Dreams come true" where children got their fantasies fulfilled, realised how colourful the children's world, desires and dreams are. At the same time he was aware that the biggest concern is the lack of positive thoughts, smiles and encouragement for everyone. That is why he put the "Stelle di Natale" team together to record a song Viss ies uz labu (Everything's going to be alright) or the original version in Sardinian Pasca e Nadale).

The profits made by the song will be donated to create the premises for music therapy and by the technical equipmentfor P.Stradins Children's Hospital in Riga, Latvia. Roberto adds, "Even though we are struggling and experiencing issues nowadays, we need to hope, love and smile because it is the shortest way to find the solution to our concerns. Positive thoughts and attitude are contagious." The Italian embassy in Latvia will support the creating the video which is going to be presented in early December at the biggest Latvian TV stations.

Pirates of the Sea represented Latvia at Eurovision Song Contest 2008 and were placed 12th in the final result of the competition.
