MIAMI, FL – December 9, 2022 – (NOTICIAS NEWSWIRE) – Atlantino, organizers of the virtual event “A VIP Holiday Experience with José Feliciano,” slated for viewing on Sunday, December 11 at 7 p.m. ET, announced today that AARP will be the presenting sponsor for the event.
Continuing Atlantino’s series of VIP Experiences with key Latino leaders and influencers, award-winning journalist Mayra Acevedo will interview Grammy Award winning musician, singer-songwriter and recording artist, José Feliciano, from the Factory Underground studio in Connecticut. In a candid conversation with the Latino community, this legendary performer will give us a peek into his life backstage, his career and accomplishments; as well as his early life, health, thoughts on aging, and more.
Feliciano will perform musical interludes from some of his most popular songs, along with a few other surprises and a grand finale medley to coincide with this Christmas-time event. Known for his classic song, “Feliz Navidad,” Feliciano recently became the first Billboard Legend award recipient and was featured in a documentary on Telemundo and Peacock for his decades-long musical career. Today, he continues to entertain millions of fans across generations, even performing the National Anthem on Clemente Day at Citi Field in New York this year.
“We’re excited to kick off the holiday season with a performance by the award-winning singer-songwriter, José Feliciano.
