Mario in Dubai

US crooner lined-up for Chi's first post-Ramadan gig

You might not know the man but you'll definitely recognise his tunes.

US R&B lovely Mario, the award-winning youngster behind 'Let Me Love You', hits Chi on Wednesday September 23.

The 20-year-old will take to the stage for a one-off Dubai session after a warm-up from Danny Neville.

Now a bit about the man himself: At age 15, his debut album Mario garnered 700,000 copies in sales, sparked by the lead single "Just A Friend". Worldwide, the album sold two million copies and "Let Me Love You" propelled him to the number one spot for nine consecutive weeks.

Strangely, the single is still one of the highest selling ringtones to date with 1.6 million downloads and Mario himself was bestowed with accolades including 2005's Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Award for Top R&B/Hip-Hop Single, a Billboard Music Award for Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Single of the Year and a slew of nominations from the Grammys, BET Awards, Vibe Awards, MOBO Awards and the Soul Train Music Awards.

If you fancy a bit of Mario, grab your tickets from Dhs150.
