Maris was at Barrio Fiesta Dubai as part of The Filipino Channel’s 30th anniversary celebration. She hit the stage ahead of Francine Diaz, Seth Fedelin and Piolo Pascual as part of the star-studded entertainment lineup during the day-long fest.

Maris dazzled the crowd with a 30-minute performance, opening with her hit single “Ate Sandali” as she moved centerstage in her flowy, turquoise dress and gold sequined boots.

The petite singer stole hearts with her heartfelt interaction with the crowd, adding that she wanted to make her performance a long one because “our time together is too short” and she had a flight to catch just right after her show. Shooting is ongoing for her hit TV series “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

Maris said she arrived in Dubai two days ago and spent time touring a few Filipino schools and institutes in the emirate.

“I realize there are so many Filipinos in Dubai. I was at Dubai Mall, and in every corner, someone yelled ‘Maris!’” she said with a grin.

Maris later shared the stage with two couples in Dubai, giving each couple red roses. She also greeted a fan’s family via a live phone call.

Her message to fans? “I will be back here. We will see each other again,” Maris said in Filipino. ICA/Expat Media
