Dubai Airports has announced Jennifer Lopez at its special guest artist for the Dubai Airshow Gala Dinner in November.
According to Dubai Airports, 3,500 guests are expected at the exclusive event November 15, which comes just weeks after her ‘One Voice: Somos Live’ charity concert that raised $35 million for victims of recent natural disasters in Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Caribbean.
“As one of the globe’s most accomplished female entertainers, Jennifer Lopez shows exactly how the power of music can connect the world. It is not often that, as an airport, we can say we share similar attributes with an artist of Jennifer’s calibre, but there is a definite shared spirit,” said Dubai Airports’ CEO Paul Griffiths.
"By inviting such an internationally recognised star, we are affirming the significance of the Dubai Airshow on the world aviation stage and allows Dubai Airports, Emirates and Dubai Duty Free to thank its valued VIP guests and partners for their support,” he added.
Previous performers at the bi-annual Airshow have included Sir Tom Jones, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry.
