Filipino star set for the World Trade Centre
Filipino singer Morrissette makes her Dubai debut with a concert this month
She’s known as Asia’s Phoenix back home in the Philippines and this month, singer Morissette makes her debut in Dubai. The star, who hails from Manila, got the nickname after finishing second on TV talent show Star Factor back in 2012 at the age of 14. Now she’s a best-selling artist, thanks to her 2015 debut album Morissette, and she’s in the emirate for one night only this month with her show, Morissette Is MADE.
This will be only the second time she’s been to the UAE, after first performing in Abu Dhabi in 2017 alongside her group ASAP Birit Queens.
She’s expected to sing hits including Diamante and Throwback and will be joined on stage by fellow Filipino singer Sam Concepcion.
As well as her success on Star Factor, she also finished as a runner-up on reality TV signing competition The Voice Of The Philippines back in 2013 and has also starred in several reality TV shows in Asia. Check out our guide to the star on the right. August 17
