Lea Makhoul has been announced as the supporting act for Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming Dubai concert.

The French Lebanese RnB singer will perform the dream gig on Friday night at Autism Rocks Arena.

It is shaping up to be a great year from the 23-year-old, who in the last few months signed up to the Dubai based major record label Universal Music Mena in addition to releasing two singles, the ballad All I Know and the upbeat pop number Paradise. A third single is slated for release before the year’s end.

Ever since coming third in the 2014 season of the Pan Arab television talent quest Star Academy, Makhoul has been busy in the studio and performing across the region.

Her biggest gig to date has been in front of 10,000 people in Beirut as part of the NRJ Music Tour, alongside the likes of pop stars Red Foo and Sam Martin.

With over 20,000 people set to attend Jlo in Dubai, Friday night is set to be the biggest moment in Makhoul’s career.

A pre-concert party will also be held on Friday night at the open-air venue Base Club’s in Dubai’s D3.

In a statement released today, organisers 117 Live have urged concert goers to arrive the venue early with doors opening from 5pm.

“There are two access roads to the venue from Emirates Road and Al Ain Road, with accessible one-way entrance to the show until 9pm and one-way exit after the show. After the concert a free bus service will take guests to three locations; Dubai Mall, Mall of Emirates and Deira City Centre.
