Luis Fonsi will be joining a very prestigious list of singers who have interpreted the U.S. National Anthem at a sporting event. Fonsi has been invited to sing the National Anthem this coming Sunday as the Miami Dolphins face the Houston Texans. The Puerto Rican will be singing at the multi-sport Sun Life Stadium located north of Miami, Florida.
Luis Fonsi is hoping that his nerves don't get the best of him as he does not want to mess up the lyrics to such an important anthem. In the past some other artists have changed the lyrics and even the tone and rhythm of the song. Luis Fonsi continues to feast on his nominations for a Latin Grammy for Record of the Year thanks to his song "Gritar" (Shout), included in his latest album "Tierra Firme" (Firm Ground).
The Puerto Rican singer who awaits the arrival of his first child, received the news about his nomination while in a concert in Venezuela, and this is what he had to say about the nomination to the Latin Grammys, "I feel very honored, thanks!!!! "Gritar" (Shout) became a smash hit since its launch and was placed in the top positions in the charts in the U.S., Argentina, Spain, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico, as per a detailed press release.
While Fonsi waits for the Latin Grammy's which will air November 10th, he will continue his tour throughout Latin America and in November he will be visiting several cities in Venezuela. Best of luck Luis Fonsi!!!!
Here is Fonsi's video "Gritar" sang live at Premios Juventud this past year. This is a very powerful song and one of my favorites...enjoy!
Peace & Love ;-) Candela
