Katy Perry in Vietnam for UNICEF charity trip: UN source

Friday, May 27, 2016, 18:07 GMT+7

American pop star Katy Perry is now in Vietnam for a charity trip of UNICEF, a source from the UN’s communications office told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Friday.

The ‘Roar’ singer is reportedly participating in UNICEF’s charity projects in Ninh Thuan Province but there has been no official announcement of the trip.

News about Perry in Vietnam has been circulated on social networks after a photo – believed to be shot in the Southeast Asian country – surfaced on Instagram showing her in a room with many objects, including two Vietnamese coffee bags and tea cups alongside the logo of a Ho Chi Minh City tourism company.

A picture of the ‘Firework’ singer in Vietnam as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador was uploaded to the Facebook page run by her fan club on Friday morning. 

According the fan club, the American singer is staying at Saigon Ninh Chu Hotel in Ninh Thuan and has visited a local school.

Born in 1984 in California, Katy Perry, whose real name is Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, has become a name known worldwide after her hit ‘I Kiss A Girl’ was released in 2008.

In 2013, she became a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF.

In Vietnam, the singer is a name favored by local youths thanks to her songs like ‘Dark Horse,’ ‘Last Friday Night,’ ‘California Gurls,’ ‘Wide Awake,’ ‘The One That Got Away,’ to name but a few.

In May last year, the singer also had a trip to the Southeast Asian country as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador and spoke about raising the voices of young people and children at the Under 30 Summit in Ho Chi Minh City.
