The official anthem for the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 will be revealed at the opening ceremony for the games on 14th March.
The song, ‘Right Where I’m Supposed To Be’, has been created by a host of music stars and producers, including Grammy Award-winning song writer Greg Wells, 28-time Grammy Award-winner Quincy Jones and Ryan Tedder, lead singer of One Republic.
At the opening ceremony, pop singer Avril Lavigne and Latin singer Luis Fonsi will perform the song for the first time alongside Emirati singer Hussain Al Jassmi, Syrian singer Assala Nasri and Egyptian singer Tamer Hosny.
“I love the fact that Special Olympics is taking place in Abu Dhabi, where East and West will be united,” said Greg Wells.
“We want to unite the whole universe on this path. The power that music has with a great song and message can not only cross fake lines on the map but ideological differences.”
The song, which is sung mostly in English with one Spanish verse, will be played throughout Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, which takes place from 14th to 21st March.
Tickets to the opening ceremony are available online from AED 100. For those not attending, you can watch as the ceremony is broadcast live from Zayed Sports City on ESPN and Abu Dhabi TV.
