Highlights from the 2023 iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina include:
The new generation of Menudo got the party started on Saturday night at the Kaseya Center. The Miami-based boy band, consisting of Nicolas Calero (10), Ezra Gilmore (12), Gabriel Rossell (13), Andres Emilio (14) and Alejandro Querales (15) busted out all their moves while performing songs like "Mi Amore" and "Tu Y Yo," which will appear on their debut album.
Singer-songwriter GALE brought all kinds of sounds to Fiesta Latina. During her set, she picked up the guitar and joined her band as they performed her song "Problemas" off her recent album Lo Que No Te Dije, which was released back in May. She also performed her other hits like "Nuestra Cancion," "Inmadura" and more.
The party continued with Luis Figueroa. He had all the fans on their feet as he and his live band performed songs like his 2022 hit "Vienes." He also delivered other tracks like "La Luz," "A Escondidas," and "Bandido" from his recent EP Voy a Ti.
Fonseca kept fans on the dance floor with his exciting performance. With the help of his live band, the Colombian pop singer ignited the stage with his energetic performance of songs like "Eres Mi Sueño," "Vine a Buscarte," "Te Mando Flores" and "Si Tú Me Quieres."
Ricardo Montaner gave fans a break from all the dancing and serenaded them with some of his classics. The Venezuelan singer and his band swooned the audience with songs like "Besame," "Tan Enamorados" and an emotional performance of "Me Va a Extrañar."
Olga Tañón had everyone moving to her incredible vocals throughout her entire performance. She opened her set at Fiesta Latina with an illuminating rendition of "Mi Eterno Amor Secreto" alongside Flamenco singer Pitingo and a group of dancers with wings that lit up the stage. She continued by performing her other classics like "Presencie Tu Amor," "Como Olvidar," "La Gran Fiesta" and more.
Servando y Florentino had everyone dancing to their salsa hits. During their performance of "Yo Sin Ti," the Primera brothers noticed the members of Menudo in the crowd, who were holding up a Venezuelan flag. The boys gave Florentino the flag and he waived it in the air as a tribute to his country. They went on to perform “Un Amor Como El Nuestro,” “No Importa” and more.
Yandel had everyone moving to all of his past and current hits. The Puerto Rican reggaetónero performed classic Wisin Y Yandel jams like "Mirala Bien," "Rakata," "Pam Pam," "Pegao," "Mayor Que Yo," "Travesuras" and plenty more. He couldn't leave without singing his latest hits "Borracho y Loco" and "150."
