Dubai Jazz Festival 2020 to Feature Award-Winning Musicians

On February 26th, American singer, songwriter, and rapper Lauryn Hill will take to the stage and sing her greatest hits. Who can forget her fantastic rendition of “Killing Me Softly,” which she performed as part of the award-winning Fugees in the 90s? Likewise, her solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, has also broken records and garnered many awards.

Hill will be joined by Bruno Major, an up and coming R&B singer known for his romantic and soulful music, as evident in his touching single, “Just the Same.”

The following evening, February 27th, will feature five-time Grammy Award winner Lionel Richie, who has been making wonderful music for decades! Many people know him for his soulful classic, “Hello.” In 1985, together with the legendary Michael Jackson, he co-wrote “We are the World,” which went on to sell more than 20 million copies worldwide. Wow!

Richie will be joined by Spyro Gyra, an American fusion band whose music combines jazz, funk, pop music, and R&B. The band has sold more than 10 million copies of their albums!
