The Dubai Fountain, the tallest performing fountain in the world, will add the Korean pop song, “Power” from the globally successful Korean boy band EXO to its list of melodies and will be premiered on 16 January 2018. After dominating the K-Pop scene, EXO is considered one of the hottest boy bands in the world right now – and they’re headed for Dubai for this occasion. Members of the band will jet in from Korea to make a special appearance at The Dubai Fountain on January 16. In addition to key media representatives from UAE, GCC, China, and South Korea, influencers and fans as well as EXO members and organizers will be attending to watch the premiere of the song played at the fountain.
The Dubai Fountain is one of the world’s must-see sites and with its vibrant musical as well as visual experience set on the 23.81-acre (equivalent to that of 18 football fields) manmade Burj Lake within Downtown Dubai, the Dubai Fountain can reach a height of 140 metres (450 ft) and is equipped with powerful nozzles capable of shooting water higher than a 45-storey building. Different combinations of water-forms created by 6,000 WET Superlights and 25 colour projectors perform to selected musical pieces – chosen from a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. The Dubai Fountain is widely recognized as one of the most impressive musical fountains of the world attracting millions of visitors each year to witness the spectacular light and music show.
The song 'Power', released back in September 2017, will accompany the world renowned fountain show beginning in January 16, 2018. This is the first time ever that a Korean song has been chosen for the show. In previous years, songs such as Thriller by Michael Jackson, I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston, The Prayer by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli, Skyfall by Adele, and La Vie En Rose by Edith Piaf accompanied the show.
The K-Pop artist, EXO made its debut in 2012 and has enjoyed phenomenal success as a boy band in Korea as well as across Asia, selling millions of records. Originally formed with twelve members, there are now just nine singers in the band, but that hasn’t stopped them from selling millions of records. Just last year, the band received a Guinness World Record for the most awards won at the Mnet Asian Music Awards.
The song “Power” is EXO’s newest hit, released in September this year to great success, topping the charts in various K-Pop markets. Not only is 'Power' an uplifting song with a catchy beat, but also the lyrics talk about how one can become stronger through music that unites everyone into one. And all these go well with The Dubai Fountain itself where all Dubai visitors from all over the world gather in one spot to enjoy the show.
