DSS Starz has given Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) visitors from around the world the opportunity to see their favourite regional and international artists perform live in the emirate – reinforcing Dubai’s position as a favourite summer destination for families from around the world.
The stylish singer and dancer took to the stage in the mall’s Central Galleria to receive a roaring applause from the audience - many of whom flocked to Dubai from across the region especially to catch the multitalented star in action.
Serenading the shoppers at Dubai’s leading destination for fashion and entertainment, with a mix of pop and R&B soundtracks including Replay and Smile in addition to a duet with Swag It Out songwriter Bobby Brackins, Zendaya kept her fans thoroughly entertained with her varied vocal talents and spectacular dance moves.
