Christian Latin artists Freddie Colloca, Alvaro Lopez and Susana Allen each
played at an intimate, yet lively Latin showcase for the NCPR track on
Sunday, April 22, at the Provident building to kick off GMA!
After moving into our media suite at the Renaissance on Sunday night, we headed to the next GMA event on our agenda – the Fourth Annual Rhythm House/True Tunes Fiesta Party at the San Antonio Grille! It was wonderful! Hundreds of people filled Commerce Street and danced to the music of
Grammy-winner Al DeLory and his Salsa band! Everyone was having such a wonderful time, and it was contagious! Unfortunately, we arrived a little late, and there were so many people at the fiesta that the food ran out! Next year we’ll get there right as it starts.
Monday night at Trafalgar Square – what a show! The One Voice Records Late Night Show started with Alvaro Lopez, drummer phenomenon, and his awesome band, the Res-Q band. Modern Drummer Magazine has called Alvaro one of the
Top Ten drummers in the world. I was especially excited about hearing Alvaro, because all day Monday I had accompanied him on his interviews. I really got to know his heart. He is so passionate about serving God, about
Jesus’ saving grace, about being real on and off the stage. In one interview I was literally in tears to hear him describe God’s love for us. Alvaro is
phenomenal in concert. The band’s sound is so full and very, very tight musically. There is nothing like him, either in the Christian or the mainstream music industries!
Then came Freddie Colloca. What a voice! My goodness! He kept everyone quiet and listening! If you ask me, he’s better than Ricky Martin. Did I mention that he is the new host for CBN’s flagship Latin show One Cubed?
Tuesday was the day of the New Artist Showcase. Freddie Colloca wowed the crowd at the showcase with his Latin-flavored pop.
Performing on the pre-televised portion of the Doves was Freddie Colloca, bringing his Latin-flavored pop to the Opry House. The home of country
music turned out to be a great place for some South of the Border musical
energy, and Freddie was a big hit!
