Popular Emirati singer-songwriter Alira debuts Expo 2020 Dubai-inspired song
– Emirati singer-songwriter Alira debuted his new song We Are One, which was inspired by Expo 2020 Dubai, as part of a concert tonight (30 January) at Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre.
The hitmaker, who was joined onstage by a number of dancers and musicians from around the world, performed a show that celebrated diversity and promoted unity.
Speaking at the end of his show, Alira said: “I would like to take this chance to thank Expo 2020 Dubai and Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy [UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General, Expo 2020 Dubai] for giving me this unforgettable opportunity to share my love and unite the world in one place. I am so extremely honoured to be with everyone here. We are such a diverse number of people, but we are all connected and united at heart by love and acceptance.”
Alira is the first Emirati countertenor to break into the UAE’s music scene and quickly gained popularity for his unique ability to sing six vocal octaves. The rising star recently released his first single Take Flight, an upbeat pop song that tells the story of infinite love between two people.
