Award-winning singer Jennifer Lopez has been announced as the special guest at this year’s Dubai Airshow Gala Dinner. Lopez will perform to 3,500 guests who will be attending the exclusive event on 15 November.
“As one of the globe’s most accomplished female entertainers, Jennifer Lopez shows exactly how the power of music can connect the world,” says Dubai Airports’ CEO, Paul Griffiths in a statement. “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. 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.”

The intimate performance will take place less than a month after the songstress’s One Voice: Somos Live concert, which raised over $35 million to help victims of natural disasters in Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Caribbean, and just a few days before JLO takes to the stage at the Autism Rocks Arena on 17 Novemeber.
48-year old Lopez follows in the footsteps of Tom Jones, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and last year’s guest Katy Perry, who all performed a mixture of their chart-topping hits, meaning guests can most probably expect “I’m Real”, “Ain’t it Funny”, “If You Had My Love”, “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” and “Jenny From the Block.”
