Former X Factor contestants 4th Impact will perform a one-night-only concert on April 29 at Al Nasr Leisureland Ice Rink in Dubai.
The Filipino sisters – Almira, Irene, Mylene and Celina Cercado – shot to fame after their appearance in the most recent series of The X Factor UK 2015, in which they finished fifth.
“Excited for our Dubai tour!” 4th Impact told their fans on Twitter on Monday. “Just wondering if there are rules? What to wear … or something? Can you help us?”
Their tweet received hundreds of likes and replies, including several tips and photos of Dubai from fans in the UAE.
A video from 4th Impact’s X Factor audition – showing them singing Bang Bang, the Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj hit – topped YouTube’s list of top-trending videos in the Philippines last year, with 48 million views.
The group are currently splitting there time between the Philippines and the United Kingdom, where they continue to perform across the nation.
In Manila, they are regulars on the popular weekend musical variety programme, ASAP, performing alongside the country’s biggest stars. They also recently headlined Manila’s Paradise International Music Festival, which also featured Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa and Rudimental.
In a previous interview with The National, eldest sister Almira said a record deal was in the works, with negotiations underway with two labels.
“We’re doing an album, of course – for this year,” she said. “We’re looking forward to our own music, our own original songs.”
The Cercados grew up in poverty in Santiago, a city in the northern Philippine province of Isabela. They flew to London last summer to audition for the reality-TV singing competition, in search of a better life.
Their 59-year-old father, Dominador, a junk dealer who pushes a cart and collects rubbish from the street, has been suffering from a brain tumour.
Through their parents’ hard work, all four sisters managed to attend university, supplementing their family’s income by entering singing competitions.
