2Cellos and Leona Lewis main stars of this year’s football gala
Globally known Croatian cellists Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser or 2Cellos will play at this year’s Ballon d’Or gala at the Kongresshaus in Zurich, FIFA announced on January 7, 2016.
The entire world will be watching them and Leona Lewis on Monday, January 11, 2016, as they entertain the crème de la crème of football including Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. This is the first appearance at Ballon d’Or for both 2Cellos and Leona Lewis, but considering their worldwide popularity, we’re sure they will attract just as many viewers as football mega-stars.
The two musical acts will perform during Monday evening’s programme, hosted by Kate Abdo and James Nesbitt, when world football will celebrate the year behind us. During the event FIFA Púskas Award, the FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year, Men’s and Women’s World Coach of the Year, FIFA Fair Play Award and the FIFA Ballon d’Or prize itself will be handed out.
If you want to tune in, and your TV screens are not close, you can do so by going to FIFA.com or FIFA’s YouTube channel. Since they will cover everything from the the exclusive press conference, first red carpet arrivals to the Gala itself and the reactions afterwards, you won’t miss a beat.
Luka and Stjepan, good luck! And until Monday, let’s enjoy a bit of their mastery surrounded by stunning Plitvice lakes in Croatia
