Kelis Opens Huvafen Fushi 2012 Dream Calendar

Maldives Promotion House – Per AQUUM has announced two time GRAMMY® nominee, BRIT Award winner, Q Award winner and NME winner, Kelis, to open the 2012 Dream Calendar at its flagship retreat Huvafen Fushi in Maldives. The event will be held on 20th January 2011.

Kelis, known for her signature colourful style, released her debut album Kaleidoscope, in December 1999 and followed it with hit releases over the years earning her a BRIT Award for International Breakthrough Act, a GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Urban/Alternative Performance and a GRAMMY®Award nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album. Kelis will be performing live in the Maldives for the first time.

Celebrating half a decade of truly iconic guest experiences, Huvafen Fushi by Per AQUUM has delivered non-stop, high-style events for the last five years through its first-in-the-Maldives original concept, the Dream Calendar.

“Kanye West’s protégé, Mr Hudson and electronic powerhouses, BT and Poet Name Life celebrated the Dream Calendar’s 5th year anniversary this year. With Kelis opening for 2012, we continue our commitment to pushing the boundaries and building on the series of A-list personalities bringing an edgy dimension to our guest experience,” CEO of Per AQUUM, Neil Palmer said.

Kelis’ 2010 release and fifth studio album, Flesh Tone, was a distinct departure from her previous albums. Working with some of the biggest names of our time, Flesh Tone, produced by will.i.am, David Guetta, Boys Noize, Jean Baptiste, Benny Benassi, DJ Ammo and Diplo amongst others, marked her transition into dance and pop music to critical acclaim.

The #1 David Guetta produced hit single Acapella, topped the US and UK Dance charts followed closely by 4th of July (Fireworks) which was co-written by Per AQUUM Music Ambassador, Poet Name Life. This June 2011, Scottish recording artist Calvin Harris collaborated with Kelis on the song ‘Bounce’ which debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart marking Kelis’ ninth top 10 single.
