The songs are from Alira’s favorite childhood anime series, and he’s excited to share these tunes in English, Japanese, and Arabic, adding that he spent a lot of time practicing the songs to get his diction and delivery as perfect as possible.

Alira’s upcoming performance at Comic Con in Abu Dhabi comes after a successful performance at Expo 2020 Dubai where he launched his debut original song, We Are One.
