The VinFuture Prize, a prestigious global science and technology award in Vietnam, is set to take place at the Ho Guom (Sword Lake) Opera House on the evening of next week’s Wednesday. The event will feature a performance by world-renowned singer Perry, courtesy of the VinFuture Foundation.

This year’s VinFuture Prize will be attended by exceptional scientists, including laureates of esteemed awards such as the Nobel and Millennium Technology, as well as international academics.

Perry previously visited Vietnam in 2015 to participate in a summit held in Ho Chi Minh City. In the subsequent year, she actively engaged in charity initiatives organized by UNICEF in Ninh Thuan Province, located in south-central Vietnam, where she served as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador.

During her previous visits to Vietnam, Perry did not perform any concerts. Therefore, this upcoming event will mark her first live performance in front of Vietnamese audiences.

Although the organizer has not yet revealed the specific songs Perry will perform at the ceremony, her performances aim to embody the qualities of determination, decisiveness, and steadfastness.

Katy Perry, born in 1984 as Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, has gained fame for numerous chart-topping hits such as “Dark Horse,” “Roar,” “Firework,” “Last Friday Night,” and “Hot N Cold.”

She is renowned for her significant influence on modern pop music as well as her camp style.

The camp style represents an aesthetic sensibility characterized by an appreciation for elements that are considered appealing due to their bad taste and ironic value.

Perry embarked on her music career in 2001 and gained global recognition with the release of her second studio album, “One of the Boys,” in 2008.

The album included her debut single “I Kissed a Girl” and the follow-up single “Hot N Cold,” which reached the top positions on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Throughout her career, Perry has released several successful albums, including “Teenage Dream,” “Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection,” “Prism,” “Witness,” and “Smile.”

Among the tracks featured on her 2013 album “Prism,” both “Roar” and “Dark Horse” garnered significant attention for championing women’s rights, topping various charts in the United States and other countries.

Notably, the music videos for both songs achieved over one billion views on Vevo, making Perry the first artist to achieve this feat with multiple videos.

Recognized with numerous awards from institutions such as the AMAs, Billboard, and People’s Choice Awards, Perry is currently recognized as one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

In September, she signed a deal reportedly worth $225 million with Carlyle-backed Litmus Music, granting them the rights to five of her studio albums released between 2008 and 2020, including “Teenage Dream,” according to Reuters.

The other four studio albums included in the deal are “One of the Boys,” “Prism,” “Witness,” and “Smile.”
