Emirati superstar Hussain Al Jassmi will perform live at Burj Park in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on Thursday, December 2.
The concert will also feature the performances of Saudi Arabian singer Dalia Mubarak and Lebanese singer Diana Haddad.
It comes on the sidelines of the 50th UAE National Day celebrations. The National Day, “Al Yawm Al Watani”, is celebrated annually on December 2.
The day commemorates UAE’s formal nationalization and the start of the federal unification of the emirates in 1971, when the six small Gulf kingdoms of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Sharjah, and Umm Al-Quwain joined together to form one federation.
A seventh emirate, Ras Al Khaimah, was integrated into the union early the following year, completing the formation of the nation known today.
This occasion marks a sincere reflection of the federation’s journey rich in monumental events and achievements, building on the foundation that was first laid down by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his brothers, the fellow founding fathers.
The UAE is hosting more than 50 activities and events for more than 20 days, in celebration of the golden jubilee of the country.
Al Jassmi will also mark the national day with a performance at Al Majaz Amphitheatre, in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, on Friday, December 3.
Moreover, the Emirati singer is set to perform live on New Year’s Eve at Al Maryah Island, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on December 31st.
Al Jassmi, born in Khorfakkan on August 25, 1979, is one of the most active and successful singers in the Arab World.
In 2008, the Emirati singer received the Murex d’Or award, under the category of “Best Arabic Male Singer.”
He had performed at multiple events and concerts in Egypt, UAE, KSA, Kuwait, and elsewhere in the Middle East.
In 2018, Al Jassmi performed at the Vatican’s annual Christmas concert, becoming the first Arab to do so.
