Juanes, Alejandro Sanz, and Miguel Bosé Will Sing for Haiti in Santo Domingo
By Dialogo February 17, 2010
Colombian singer Juanes and Spaniards Alejandro Sanz and Miguel Bosé have
confirmed their participation in the concert that, organized by Dominican Juan Luis
Guerra, will be held in Santo Domingo in April to raise money to build a children’s
hospital in Haiti.
Juan Luis Guerra’s press office indicated today that the event, organized to
help the Caribbean nation struck by a January 12 earthquake, will also include
Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi, as well as Dominican artists Milly Quezada, Maridalia
Hernández, and Johnny Ventura.
The gala will take place on 18 April in Santo Domingo’s Olympic Stadium, and
the group “4-40,” which Guerra directs, will accompany each of the artists. Titled
“A Song of Hope for Haiti,” the concert will also be organized by the Sur Futuro
Foundation, a body with which Juan Luis Guerra has worked on previous occasions, the
source indicated in a statement.
One of their most recent joint projects was the construction of around one
hundred homes for families affected by tropical storms Olga and Noel, which struck
the Dominican Republic in 2007. Amarilys Germán, Juan Luis Guerra’s agent,
emphasized that since the concert was announced, numerous artists have contacted the
Dominican musician to offer to participate in the initiative.
