López joins a roster that includes Luis Fonsi, J Balvin and Juan Magan for the quadruple-threat show that will close Terra Live Music’s 2014 season.

The show will take place on Monday, November 18 at the House of Blues in Las Vegas and will be streamed the following day (Tuesday, Nov. 18) on Terra.com (7:30 pm ET).

It’ll be the last show of the year for the series, which has grown steadily over the past several years and now features one show a month.

Offerings for 2014 included live performances by Juanes and La Ley as well as “home” concerts staged at fans’ houses by the likes of Sie7e and Patty Cantú.

This, however, will be the first time four different acts will perform on the same show, with each act playing a solo set.

Fonsi, the headliner, is one of pop music’s leading stars. J Balvin, of course, is in the midst of touring with Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull and his new single “Ay Vamos” this week topped Billboard’s Latin Rhythm Airplay chart for the fifth consecutive week. Magan will showcase his new dance hits from Spain, and López — the newcomer in the group — is up for a Latin Grammy in the Best New Artist category for his pop fare.

Sie7e Appearing on Telemundo’s Una Maid en Manhattan

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.

Calle 13 Takes Down the Competition at Last Night’s Latin Grammys…

Calle 13 proved to be the big winner at last night’s Latin Grammy Awards, picking up a record nine awards including album of the year for “Entren Los Que Quieran.”

The Puerto Rican urban act—came into the night with a leading 10 nominations—kicked off the awards show with a high-energy performance of their hit “Latinoamerica,” earning a standing ovation for the tune that celebrates la cultura latina. The song later received the Latin Grammy for song of the year and record of the year awards, ensuring a sweep of the night’s top prizes.

Calle 13 Latin Grammys

The hip-hop duo, comprised of step brothers Eduardo Cabra and Rene Perez, dedicated one award “to those who don’t sell out and make real music,” and exclaimed “long live true music” after winning another.

Calle 13’s other prizes included: best urban album, best urban song, best tropical song, alternative song, short-form music video and producer of the year. In the end, the duo ended up re-writing the record books in two categories: most Latin Grammy awards won in a career (19) and most Latin Grammy Awards won in one single night.

The group’s record-breaking wins at this year’s Latin Grammy led Franco de Vita—who won best male pop vocal album—to joke onstage, “Lucky Calle 13 wasn’t in this category!”

Meanwhile, Puerto Rican singer Sie7e was named best new artist; Shakirawho was feted as this year’s Person of the Year by the Latin Recording Academy a night earlier—earned the best female pop vocal album; Alex, Jorge y Lena won best album vocal pop duo; Mana claimed a win for rock album; and Tito El Bambino won best contemporary tropical album.
