Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City: Charlie Cruz
Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City, NJPAC’s free outdoor music series in Chambers Plaza, presents an evening of sizzling salsa with fast-rising vocalist Charlie Cruz.
One of the newest stars in salsa music, Cruz was born in Puerto Rico, then spent his teenage years in Paterson, where he first grew to love salsa. As a young performer, he returned to Puerto Rico where he spent two years honing his skills as a vocalist in the Domingo Quiñones Orchestra. Soon after that, he shared the stage at a concert featuring superstars Gilberto Santa Rosa, Victor Manuelle and Tito Nieves. That concert led to a contract with Sir George Records, where Cruz has produced a string of hit singles, including "Bombon de Azucar," "Amarte es un Problema" and "Déjala que Baile." His latest album is 2018’s Tu Con El.
Opening for Charlie Cruz will be Latin/tropical soul band 3D Rhythm of Life.
