X Factor Arabia winner to perform at Dubai International

UAE. Dubai Airports has revealed that X Factor Arabia winner Hamza Hawsawi will be the next artist to perform in its #musicDXB series.

Hawsawi, who was crowned winner of the fourth series of the talent show, will give an exclusive festive performance at Dubai International Airport’s Concourse B on 23 December.

Hawsawi, originally from Saudi Arabia, is now based in Dubai and sings and writes his own material in English. He recorded his upcoming album in Dubai and at the famous Metropolis Studios in London.

Hawsawi has also worked on regional and international campaigns for brands including L’Azurde, Mobily and Netflix. Hawsawi’s new single will be released in early 2017.

Dubai Airports’ VP Media and Brand Engagement Helen Mellor-Mitchell said: “Hamza has an incredible voice and the ability to truly captivate audiences with his performance. Having been voted the winner of the most recent season of X Factor Arabia, he has shown just how talented he is. We are thrilled that he will be entertaining our passengers at this special time for festive travel.”

Dubai Airports said Hawsawi’s cross-cultural appeal is the essence of #musicDXB

Launched in November 2015, Dubai Airports’ #musicDXB offers a platform to regional and international stars, as well as emerging artists, both physically – via live performances in the airport, and virtually – via Dubai International’s social media channels, with a reach of nearly two million.

Other festive activities at Dubai International include a visit from Santa Claus, a Swarovski crystal tree, seasonal restaurant menus and carol singers.

Children can build a snowman in the Kid’s Zone in Concourse B, while the whole family can win prizes in the interactive digital game ‘Find Pedro’ in Concourse D.
