Millions of visitors are getting ready to flock to the UAE to discover Expo 2020, a six-month celebration of human creativity, innovation, progress and culture, with music providing a unifying, uplifting force, and our excitement levels are through the roof.
With less than 10 days to go until it opens its doors to the world, Expo 2020 Dubai has officially launched its official song titled This Is Our Time.
Highlighting the UAE’s culture, the song – featuring Hussain Al Jassmi (Expo 2020 ambassador), Mayssa Karaa (Lebanese-American Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter) and Almas (Emirati singer-songwriter) – the song is a celebration of Expo’s overarching theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ through the universal language of music.
Speaking of the honour, Hussain Al Jassmi said: “This Is Our Time is a tribute to the UAE for all it has been, is today and will achieve in the years to come. It’s a song about pride, faith and unity, and I hope that it brings a smile to the faces of everyone who hears it, wherever they may be in the world,” whilst Almas mentioned “I’m so proud to be Emirati and play a role in a moment that will be forever part of my country’s history. The song is an embodiment of hope and the belief that collaboration will yield a better future for all.”
Expo 2020 will run from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
