Lineup – Saturday September 23rd – Unity Feat. John Secada
Born in Peru and raised in Miami, talented multi-instrumentalist and composer Tony Succar had already developed a great ear for infusing Latin spirit into famous classical jazz arrangements at a young age. Shortly after Michael Jackson left the world with only his legacy, Tony felt he wanted to pay homage to his musical hero and founded the project Unity: A Latin tribute to Michael Jackson. For this and previous prestigious projects, he worked together with great names, such as Arturo Sandoval, Néstor Torres, Tito Nieves, La India, Obie Bermúdez and Tito Puente Jr. When he met multiple Grammy winner Jon Secada, magic was bound to happen. The Cuban singer-songwriter, famous for various hits like Just Another Day and his collaborations with Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin, immediately fell for the feelgood quality of the project. In a heartfelt collaboration with Unity, he recorded a soulful salsa rendition of the iconic MJ song Human Nature.
