Only a few fortunate fans will have the opportunity to dance and sing along to some of Carlos Vives' most heartfelt tunes in the heat of Miami this Wednesday.
The Colombian singer, composer, actor, and Grammy and Latin Grammy award winner will be the spotlight of a private exclusive performance which is part of Univision Radio's 2013 H2O Concert Series, created to celebrate the Hispanic 2.0 community - the bilingual and bi-cultural hispanic populace. Last year's concerts included Juanes, Weezer, Paulina Rubio, and Snoop Dog.
Vives' concert will be the opener to the series and it will be held at The Fillmore Miami.
Univision listeners and followers had the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Miami to attend the show. Fifteen Univision Radio stations across the country participated in the giveaway.
"Dicen que Miami sabe bailar, vamos a poner eso a la prueba en el 'H2O Concert Series.' ¡Aquí con muchas ansias de ver a mis queridos fans y compartir una noche de música con ustedes!" (I hear that Miami knows how to dance, so let's put that to test at the 'H2O Concert Series.' I can't wait to see my beloved fans and to share a night of music with you all) Vives posted on his Facebook account today.
"Volvi a Nacer" (Born Again) is the lead single from his latest album, "Corazón Profundo." According to his website, the song reached Billboard's No.1 in the Latin Airplay in the U.S. it has also reached over 9 million plays on his official YouTube channel.
During the concert, his eclectic opening acts, JotDog and Leslie Grace are sure to bring much heat to Miami. The Mexican pop band Jotdog has received various nominations since their debut in 2009, most recently at the Latin Grammy Awards for Best Pop/Rock Album for their 2012 "Turista del Amor." Dominican singer Leslie Grace is dominating radio waves herself, and according to Billboard.com at only 17, grace is the youngest female to achieve a Billboard No. 1 Latin airplay hit with her song, "Will U Still Love Me Tomorrow."
According to Univision, two additional exclusive concerts will happen this year and the big H2O music festival which is open to everyone will take place sometime in August.
