A new movement is taking over the stage, not because of emerging talents but because audiences are fascinated by the quality and artistry of true performers like Jerry Rivera. Rivera’s successful career demonstrates that
staying relevant for so many years is not a matter of luck but of hard work, discipline, and perseverance. It doesn’t hurt that he has gained great affection and respect from a public who has followed him since he was almost a child.
Born on July 31, 1973, Rivera is the best-selling salsa artist. He has amassed a devoted international fan base and released a prodigious collection of music since his 1989 debut that kicked o in Humacao, Puerto Rico. His songs have been sung and danced internationally by salsa lovers and remain valid for love themes that everyone can relate to. The phenomenon he became has taken him to the most important stages of music, and in his fantastic tour of 2022, he has managed to bring the salsa genre to the forefront again.
We cannot forget his extraordinary performance in Panama last May. During a concert he was supposed to headline with Marc Anthony, Rivera had to carry the whole show when Anthony had to cancel due to illness. Rivera managed to keep the audience on fire for over two hours while singing the iconic songs that have gotten him many awards and have topped the music charts.
Jerry Rivera has been sweeping and follows a prevailing trend: people buy tickets and sell out shows for artists who make outstanding music. Without putting him in the “veterans” category because he is still young, audiences of four generations filled the auditoriums and stadiums in Mexico and Peru. Even in these countries where people have a wide range of concert choices, audiences fl locked to enjoy “The Baby of Salsa” and to sing along to classics like “Amores Como el Nuestro” and recent hits; like his duet with Don Omar, “Tú No Bailas Más Que Yo.” The chanting during these concerts shook the stage and brought our “Child Face” to tears of emotion.
His unprecedented tour that started July 9 at the Miami FTX Arena, has taken him through Las Vegas and various cities in California. In Costa Rica, he had to book three dates! In South America, he delighted Colombians when visiting Cali, the capital of salsa, and wowed the demanding crowds.
In a very productive year, Rivera announces a new record with another great: Rey Ruíz. The most extraordinary voices of romantic salsa come together in a production that we hope will be available soon. The collaboration promises to be a bombshell that brings their experience, a mixture of contemporary and urban sounds, and a bit of pop, making the kings of salsa the top choice for Latin American audiences.
Rivera’s team is planning to visit our region again with a concert on Saturday, October 8th, at Da Empire in New Orleans. We know this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable evening during a unique celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month with this great artist.
VIVA NOLA will participate in this celebration, so stay tuned to our social media channels for further details and a special giveaway!
