American Sabor Lands In Miami

 HistoryMiami is the perfect setting for American Sabor exhibition!  American sounds well American, but Sabor is a Spanish word that means “flavor” and is often used to describe good music.  So what is American Sabor, its a wonderful exhibition that presents musical contributions of U.S. Latinos from the 1940’s to the present. I am sure that it will trigger some good memories, as you learn about Latinos in U.S. Popular music. American Sabor was created by EMP Museum and the University of Washington. It was organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution. The exhibition, its national tour and related programs are made possible by Ford Motor Company Fund. One of the things I enjoy most about working with brands like Ford, is that they truly engage with their communities and I get to cover these truly amazing initiatives. Also, proud to have been selected with my sister Linda Ponder as part of American Sabor Distinguished Community Members where Emilio Estefan is the Honorary Chairman. Fun moments at the opening reception in Miami with Tito Puente Jr. and Alex González drummer/songwriter Maná: At the opening reception we also met Joe Avila, Community OutReach Manager,  Ford Motor Company Fund who extended an invitation to the community in Miami as he is convinced and I am too, that when you get to visit American Sabor, you will feel the connection to your story in the U.S. Do not miss great HistoryMiami public programs related to American Sabor: Guided Exhibition Tours – August 10 – October 26 – Museum Admission: Adult $8 – Seniors/Students $7 – Children (6-12) $5, Children under 6 FREE, History Miamimembers FREE Family Fun Day: Latin Beats Extravaganza – August 9 from 1-4pm FREE dance lessons by the Salsa Kings.

Email Info: stravieso@historymiami.org Panel Discussion: Latin Music and Miami – October 4 at 2pm FREE with Panelists:  Tito Puente Jr., Carlos Oliva and Jorge Luís Piloto – RSVP @historymiami.org Latino musicians have had a profound influence on traditional genres of music in the United States, including jazz, rhythm and blues, rock “n” roll and hip-hop.

El imparable de RICKY MARTIN truifando por todo el mundo desde Australia hasta Marruecos y no para de trabajar. Por suerte comparte todos sus aventuras con contenido que va montando a diario en Twitter, Facebook y creo que su favorito es Instagram.

 Grateful for an amazing experience covering the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas and if that was not enough, I was honored to be included in the Billboard LIVE Blog with a team of artists including Kelly Rowland and key music journalists to give real-time commentary on the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. A BIG thank you is in order for the Ford Motor Company who supported me in this new journey covering the most prestigious and important music award show in the United States. My fashion Pink wig look is key, so grateful that TOP designer Viviana Gabeiras dressed me and actually I was a hit with country super stars Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line with shout outs in the media room that they liked my pink hair LOL! Last but not least as part of my look, I got these awesome Pink eyeglasses by AQS Store in the Artist Lounge!!! Among the moments I will never forget were when Ricky Martin during Billboard rehearsals recognized me from another red carpet walked over to say hello, gave me a kiss on the cheek and took a selfie WEPA! I was in the Artist Lounge and Shakira walks in with her entourage and I told her publicists that I was there for the Latino fans and she allowed me to take a picture and introduce myself. Then there was Carrie Underwood in the press room where I asked her about collaborating with Latinas and she said Shakira for sure and Kesha, I asked her about her fashion style on the new ABC Show Rising Star and her answer was so honest about her journey into the fashion world. I also met some new contacts from Twitter, The Insider and ABC wow!!! Thank you’s to the Social Media Billboard Team and Dick Clark Productions for inviting me to this one in a lifetime opportunity!!!
