Danna Paola, Carla Morrison, and More Latin Music Stars’ Valentine’s Weekend Live-stream Concerts

Today’s Latin music superstars have your Valentine’s weekend covered. To encourage people to stay home while we’re in this COVID-19 pandemic, artists like Danna Paola, Carla Morrison, and Kany García are hosting live-stream concerts.

Danna Paola’s Welcome to My Break Up Party concert

Fresh off breaking through the top 10 of Billboard‘s Latin Pop Albums chart, Danna Paola will be performing music from her new K.O. album in a live-stream concert. Inspired by the album’s message of knocking out the heartache, the Mexican pop princess titled her show: Welcome to My Break Up Party. Expect the Élite star to slip in some of her classics too. Fingers crossed for “Agüita,” one of Mexico’s gay anthems.

“We’re putting together a really special show,” Paola told W Magazine last month. “I don’t want a concert with just a stage and singing and that’s it. I want to make it an experience for my fans.”

Welcome to My Break Up Party will be streaming worldwide on Feb. 13 and Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14. Fans can buy their tickets now at Streamtime.

Kany García en concierto acústico

Multiple Latin Grammy-winner and current Grammy nominee Kany García is putting on a special acoustic live-stream concert for her fans. At this year’s Grammy Awards, the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter is up for Best Latin Pop or Urban Album for last year’s Mesa Para Dos, her duets album. There’s plenty of love songs on the LP, including the stunning standout “Lo Que En Ti Veo” with Argentine musician Nahuel Pennisi.

For our LGBTQ+ family, García is a part of the community too. She sings “Lo Que En Ti Veo” to her partner, Jocelyn Troche, in the beautiful music video. Move quickly for her acoustic concert as it will only be streaming on Feb. 13. Fans can buy their tickets now at LivePass.  

Carla Morrison live-stream concert

Like García, Morrison is a multiple Latin Grammy-winner and past Grammy nominee. The Mexican alternative music icon will be putting on a one night only event on Valentine’s Day. She will be singing her hits in a live-stream concert from The Paramount in L.A. We can never have enough of the Amor Supremo album, especially live.

Morrison recently teamed up with Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin on the song “Recuerdo” for his Pausa EP. Fans can buy their tickets for her special live-stream concert here.

Singer-Songwriter Kany García Speaks Out Against Conversion Therapy in Puerto Rico

JOCELYN TROCHE

As the Puerto Rican government is debating a bill on conversion therapy, Kany García is speaking out against the controversial practice. The Boricua singer-songwriter wrote an open letter to the senators in favor of Senate Bill 184, which would help end conversion therapy on the island.

Kany is one of Puerto Rico’s most-decorated artists.

García is one of the Puerto Rico’s top artists. She’s won six Latin Grammy out of a career 20 nominations. In March, she was also nominated for her third Grammy Award for her latest album Mesa Para Dos.

This year Kany celebrated five years since coming out.

On Valentine’s Day 2016, García revealed that she was in a relationship with her partner, Jocelyn Troche. The couple is still going strong with Troche appearing in last year’s “Lo Que En Ti Veo.” She and García share beautiful moments in the video. At November’s Latin Grammy Awards, there was a big wave of artists in the LGBTQ+ community in the major categories, including García, Ricky Martin, Pablo Alborán, and Jesse y Joy’s Joy Huerta.

She’s telling Puerto Rican senators to pass Senate Bill 184 in her letter.

Since coming out, García has remained at the forefront of queer issues in Puerto Rico. The passage of Senate Bill 184 seeks to prohibit conversion therapy. The controversial practice has long harmed LGBTQ+ communities. It’s thought of as a way to rid them of their queer gender or sexual identities.

“Puerto Rico deserves that every girl and boy, every young woman and young man can be who they want to be and love who they want to love,” García wrote in her letter. “This measure has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with the protection of Puerto Rican children and youth.”

García speaks from her own experience. “I am an example of how to be faithful to who you are. I am a woman who deeply loves her partner and who is loved by her family and by our people. There is nothing to change. There is nothing to repair. There’s nothing to heal. We have to give the same opportunity that I have had, to be who I am, to all our children and youth.”

García further writes that the bill should be passed as-is without any amendments. According to Al Día news, Popular Democratic Party Senators Gretchen Hau, Elizabeth Rosa Velez, and Migdalia Gonzalez have filed several amendments to Senate Bill 184 as of Wednesday. Puerto Rico’s governor Pedro Pierluisi has indicated that he’s ready to override the senators if necessary.
