    Global superstar Mariah Carey and acclaimed Emirati artist and Expo 2020 Ambassador Hussain Al Jassmi will perform live as part of UAE-wide celebrations marking One Year to Go until Expo 2020 Dubai.

    Free, fun-filled and family-friendly events will be held across all seven emirates on Sunday 20 October from 1700 to 2200, with an eye-catching projection on Burj Khalifa at 2020 (8.20pm) kickstarting the 12-month countdown to the World’s Greatest Show.

    Carey and Al Jassmi will headline celebrations in Burj Park, Downtown Dubai with simultaneous festivities taking place at Louvre Abu Dhabi, Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah, Ajman Museum, Umm Al Quwain Corniche, Al Qawasim Corniche in Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah Fort.

    Every event will feature grassroots music and performing arts, amazing food, graphic art and more – plus live streams of Dubai’s headline acts and the Burj Khalifa countdown.

    Carey is a singer, songwriter, actress, record producer and entrepreneur who has sold more than 200 million records, making her one of the bestselling musicians of all time. She has written 17 US number one singles, more than any other female songwriter in history, including We Belong Together, Hero and Fantasy.

    The five-time Grammy-winner, who also penned the evergreen festive hit All I Want for Christmas is You, is well known for efforts to help underprivileged children, receiving the Congressional Horizon Award for her youth-related charity work.

    Sharjah-born star Al Jassmi is a bestselling Arabic-language artist, with songs including Boshret Kheir and Bawada’ak.

    He is also known for his humanitarian work, regularly visiting refugee camps in the region, and was the first Arab artist invited to perform at the Vatican’s annual Christmas charity concert in 2018, where he met with Pope Francis and conveyed the UAE’s values of tolerance between all people and religions.
