She lit up the Dubai World Cup

American singer Gwen Stefani was the latest star to take the stage in Dubai, as she was headlining the Dubai World Cup on March 30. The rock chick of the nineties did not hold back during her concert, as she performed hits like Hollaback Girl and No Doubt classic, Don’t Speak.

But her visit to the UAE didn’t just stop there, the 49-year-old made sure to stop by Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital, where she visited the team and children. The hospital shared pictures of the visit on their Twitter, where they wrote that the The Sweet Escape singer brought “a smile to the children and staff.”


Stefani replied to their tweet, thanking them, “Thank u for having me.” This visit comes as no surprise, as the former The Voice judge is known for her philanthropic work. She works with and supports several charities in the United States, including ones that focus specifically children’s issues. Moreover, back in 2011, she donated AED 3.67 million to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.

More recently, the mother of three, who currently has a residency show in Las Vegas, made sure that $1 of every ticket purchased for her concert goes to the Cure 4 the Kids Foundation. The charity is the city of Nevada’s only non-profit childhood cancer treatment centre. There, a new patient exam room, which opened earlier this year, has been named in Stefani’s honour.
