The Life Ball is one of the biggest AIDS charity events in the world. Held annually, the event serves not only to fund raise for important aid projects, but also to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and fight against its taboo status in society.

Tonight, Adam performs "Love Wins Over Glamour", the official song of Life Ball 2013, for its opening ceremony. The song is written by Werner Stranka and Martin Gellner and is produced by BEAT4FEET. Adam also contributes to the song with some lyrics of his own.

The inspiration of the ball is "1001 Nights", linking Life Ball with the idea of "saving lives with imagination". For "Love Wins Over Glamour", Adam takes on the role of Ali Baba who is under the spell of the treasure of 40 thieves. Accompanied by the thieves' dancing, he yells the magic words "Open Sesame" at the end of the song, revealing the Life Ball stage that is concealed by the doors of a large dome.
