The performances will be broadcast virtually around the world via Instagram TV (@ibishotels), Facebook and YouTube. They will celebrate a theme of openness to the world and to others, reaffirming the ibis core values of togetherness and inclusiveness, while sharing a message of hope and unity to all.
"All ibis hotels share one common credo: to be open to all, wherever and whomever you are, which is why we named this tour 'ibis MUSIC We Are Open'," said Caroline Benard, Vice President, Eco Brands Experience, Accor. "We are proud to share our love for travel and hospitality that continues despite the challenges presented to us this year. We hope this initiative will help the world re-connect through the extraordinary power of music - a universal language that knows no borders. More than ever, we believe that an open world is a better world."
The multi-talented artist Charlie Winston, the Brazilian superstar Pabllo Vittar, and the British songstress Izzy Bizu, will take the ibis community along on their own personal journeys to discover talented up-and-coming artists that defy stereotypes and convention in their own countries. It will also allow the public to "virtually traverse" the globe through the lens of music and discover 12 vibrant destinations.
