Latino Music Fest
Burger King Corporation (BKC) presents what’s hot and what’s new in Latino music through the Tu Ciudad, Tu Música(SM) talent showcase, which will provide aspiring musicians with the opportunity to be named the best local band in 10 U.S. cities. (Event schedule below) It will include stops in Dallas, Phoenix, Fresno, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and McAllen.
In the Tu Ciudad, Tu Música(SM), ten popular local bands will be pre-selected to battle onstage for a chance to win prize packages, such as $2,500 and radio play. A panel of local judges will determine winners of each competition based on each band’s live performance, musical talent and crowd cheers.
“This year, BKC embraces the diversity within Latin cultures by providing a platform for Latino music’s newest stars,” said Alexandra Galindez, Director for Multi-Cultural Marketing.
The Tu Ciudad, Tu Música(SM) tour organizers invite music enthusiasts to attend the free local concerts to support their favorite musicians. Fans can also win one of several prize packages by participating in a national sweepstakes sponsored by Telemundo Network Group. The grand prize is a trip for two to attend the final Tu Ciudad, Tu Música(SM) concert in Miami.
As a proud supporter of Hispanic musical talent, BKC encourages Latin music’s emerging stars. For the past six years, BKC has sponsored promotional musical platforms to highlight the diverse artistic abilities of Hispanic entertainers among them “We Sing En Español…And English Too,” a historical and educational journey tracing Latin music roots that targeted middle and high school students.
