This week I was invited by HBO Latino to attend a very special dinner with Juanes at the Electric Room at the Dream Hotel in New York! We were celebrating The Juanes Effect: De Canciones Y Transformaciones premieres on Friday, May 19th at 7:30 PM ET, followed by an in-studio concert of the new album Mis Planes Son Amarte at 8:00 PM ET.
For the first time, Juanes opens the doors to his home, giving HBO Latino an exclusive look into his life. The Juanes Effect: De Canciones Y Transformaciones takes you on a journey from his home in Miami to his homeland Medellín, Colombia as he prepares for the upcoming release of Mis Planes Son Amarte – Latin music’s first major visual album. (Yes, you need it in your life).
It is a must-see! HBO Latino brings audiences an intimate 30-minute special on the Colombian superstar, which tells his story through the eyes of the people he’s touched with his voice, music, and love. The special and concert will air across all of the channel’s platforms including HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
Through a series of interviews, artists, producers, friends, and family, explore the meaning of “the Juanes effect” and how his passion for music touches everyone around him.
After the special, Juanes will continue to delight fans with a concert showcasing an hour of hits and songs from his new album, Mis Planes Son Amarte. Anticipation for the new album, which shares the story of an astronaut’s search for true love across time and space, is already high following the global success of its first single “Fuego” – which reached #1 in 17 countries, including the United States.
With seven previous solo albums to his credit and multi-platinum sales of over 17 million copies, Juanes is the world’s leading all-Spanish language rock artist. Juanes is frequently recognized as one of the Spanish-speaking world’s leading social media voices with an online following of 22 million fans. His dedication as a global activist extends beyond his passionate lyrics and is seen in his wide ranging charitable work including his Mi Sangre Foundation.
