Intimate. Magical. Real. Unforgettable. Those are just some of the words that can be used to describe the live concert offered by Mexican superstar Thalía on Thursday, July 30, at the University of Miami''s BankUnited Center in Coral Gables.
Sony Music Latin and Primera Fila presented the second concert in a series that began last year with legendary Mexican singer Vicente Fernández. The concept is to showcase live performances of some of the biggest names in the Latin music industry, and to do so in front of a select, more intimate audience.
After selling 25 million albums, and having become a global icon with her "telenovelas", Thalía had nothing to prove, but she craved a new professional challenge and Primera Fila was the perfect stage. She wanted to solely focus on her music, nothing else.
Accompanied by 12 musicians, Thalia performed 15 live songs from some of the most influential composers of Latin America, including Juan Luis Guerra''s `Cuando Te Beso'' and Roberto Carlos'' `Qué Será de Ti''. She also performed new songs, including "Equivocada", written by Sony''s revolutionary new talent, Mario Domm, lead singer from the award-winning pop rock group Camila. One of Primera Fila''s highlights was definitely her duet ("Con La Duda") with legendary Mexican singer Joan Sebastian. The performance was not only unexpected, but also brilliantly executed.
Different from anything she''s ever done, Thalía''s Primera Fila was a personal, raw, up-close revelation of the woman and the artist. With powerful interpretations, fan interactions and an invitation to witness the latest from one of the world''s most original Latin superstars.
Throughout the night, Thalía sang with great honesty, as someone who has matured musically and has clearly evolved as an individual. More importantly, she revealed her passion for music in an environment that allowed any fan to share her great joy.
