He’s the Latin Grammys’ reigning best new artist… And now Sie7e is preparing to appear on his first primetime telenovela.
The 34-year-old Puerto Rican singer-songwriter will make his television debut on Telemundo’s Una Maid en Manhattan, according to network officials.
Sie7e, whose real name is David Labault Rodríguez, will perform his music—a fusion of different genres with Puerto Rican rhythms—in a scene showing the opening of a cafe in tonight’s episode.
Based on Jennifer Lopez‘s film Maid in Manhattan, the telenovela tells the story of Maritza Lujan (played by Litzy), a Mexican single mother who immigrates to the United States with her 10-year-old son. She ends up working as a maid at a luxury hotel in New York, where she encounters millionaire businessman Cristobal (Eugenio Siller), who succumbs to love at first sight.
Sie7e—focused on spreading his positive attitude around the world and bringing a message of peace, joy and love to all through his music—recently released a cover of “Don’t Worry Be Happy” that made it into Puerto Rico’s Top 20 in just a matter of weeks.
Una Maid en Manhattan airs Monday through Friday at 8:00 p.m.
