DSF closing celebrations: Young Syrian singer Faia Younan to perform



Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 26 January 2020: She has become known as the first Middle Eastern artist ever to crowdfund her debut single and now, popular Syrian singer Faia Younan is preparing to set the stage alight at the Coca-Cola Arena as she joins the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) Closing Celebrations line-up on Friday 31 January. Faia will be performing on the same night as international favourite John Legend, which will bring the hugely successful 25th edition of DSF to a resounding close.

Riding on the wave of success of ‘A Sea Between Us’, Faia’s debut album, the singer is becoming hugely popular with both Arabic and Western audiences, reflecting her childhood growing up in Aleppo before moving to Sweden with her family at the age of 11 and relocating to Scotland to study at Glasgow University. She shot to fame after a music video she created with her sister went viral, catapulting her international recognition and turning singing into a full-time career.

Faia’s crowdfunding efforts to support the launch of her song Ohebbou Yadayka (I Love Your Hands) saw her enter the Guinness World Records as the first Middle Eastern artist to crowdfund a debut song, making her the first female artist from the Arab World to enter the coveted Guinness World Record Book.

A blockbuster weekend of concerts has already been announced to celebrate the closing weekend of the 25th edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF). On Thursday 30 January, Rashed Al Majid and Majid Al Mohandis will wow audiences, while Friday 31 January will see international musical superstar John Legend perform live for adoring fans.

The performances on both nights will set the Coca-Cola Arena alight, with tickets for each concert available from just AED 195 on the Dubai Calendar App and Coca-Cola Arena website www.coca-cola-arena.com. John Legend Live in Dubai for the DSF Closing Celebrations is expected to be a sell-out gig and fans are advised to act fast in order to snap up tickets to what are sure to be two of the best concerts of 2020.
