Nearly a year after bringing John Legend to Vietnam for the inaugural VinFuture Prize, Empire delivered Grammy Award-winning artist Christina Aguilera for her first-ever performance in Vietnam. The second annual VinFuture Prize award ceremony took place on December 20, 2022, at the historic Hanoi Opera House before a live audience of 250 VIPs including the Prime Minister of Vietnam, Phạm Minh Chính. It was broadcast live throughout Southeast Asia and the world on Vietnam Television (VTV). Christina Aguilera’s show-stopping performance included her hits “Beautiful" and “The Voice Within“ with her band, and for the finale, an intimate performance of “A Million Dreams”. The event also featured the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra with acclaimed Conductor Honna Tetsugi and traditional Vietnamese ballet performances.

The VinFuture Prize Foundation is an independent and non-profit organization in Vietnam. The Foundation was established with the vision of catalyzing meaningful changes in the everyday lives of millions of people by honoring transformational technological innovations at a global scale. The first global award of its kind from Vietnam, the VinFuture Prize presented US$4.5 million to international scientists to support breakthrough scientific research and technological innovation. In addition to the the Grand Prize, three special prizes recognized female innovators, outstanding achievements in emerging fields, and in developing countries. In addition to artist booking and contract negotiation, Empire advanced all technical and creative aspects of Christina Aguilera’s participation for the event, including staging, sound, lighting, LED screen graphics, teleprompter, run of show, schedule, and dressing room hospitality. Empire also provided consulting on all matters regarding artist interactions with press and media, television interview, press releases, broadcast / livestream, and music licensing concerns. Working with our long-time partners in Vietnam, Empire coordinated all air transportation, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, visa acquisition, and local sightseeing excursions.
