See below his amazing 2 songs, just perfect for our holiday listening!

Release: Thursday Dec 17th
Where: See below different music platforms.


SONG #1: “This Christmas”

It’s my favorite all time Christmas song and had an idea to make it into salsa. My first Christmas song release is about my all time favorite Christmas song “This Christmas” by Donny Hathaway.

So on this I teamed up with Bay Area Producer Erick Peralta to make it happen. It’s a perfect blend of Christmas music and Latin music to make it authentic to who I am as an artist. This is my gift to all my fans for supporting me over the years.

Hear this song!



SONG #2: “Prometo”

It’s the beginning of my second salsa album. I chose this cover by Pablo Alboran because of how beautiful the song is and it would set the pace perfectly of how I want my second album to sound.

After the success of my first album, I need to make sure I plan my next album with the same amount of love and care. So thankfully, once again I’m able to team up with some of the best in the world to make it happen.

Hear this song!
