Nazario and Secada will celebrate Estefan in a musical tribute at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach in Miami Beach. The event will celebrate other artists, including Panamanian songwriter Omar Alfanno, Mexico’s Lolita De La Colina and Spain’s Rafael Pérez Botija.
Nazario’s career spans more than 30 years and includes many awards, including a Drama Desk Award nomination for The Capeman on Broadway, which was written by Paul Simon. Secada has also had many accolades and has written for Estefan, Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez, among others.
Estefan is known around the world for her iconic music. She’s had dozens of No. 1s on the Billboard charts, and in 2011, “Hotel Nacional” from her album Miss Little Havana placed her as the first female to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart since Rocio Durcal posted the first No. 1 in 1986.Read More
