THE MAIN EVENT. Kanye Move Over – Here’s The Next Voice Of A Generation!By Wendy C. Gonzalez | October 19, 2015 | Gals On The Town
It’s #MAINEVENTMONDAY Divas! Our contributor Wendy Gonzalez discovers the next voice of a generation with ties to her Latino roots!
HBO Latino extended me a VIP invitation to the new documentary The Poet of Havana — airing on the network this week — highlighting iconic Cuban musician Carlos Varela, and it went beyond my expectations. This documentary touched me in the most profound way as possible due to the fact that I live and breathe music!
Ron Chapman, the film’s producer and director, captured the real essence of this amazing and talented musician, who shares his hyped perception of what the world is through his lyrics infused with deep passion as he plays his guitar.
Through this documentary I witnessed a seed waiting to blossom around the world, ready to share his thoughts and fears. Carlos Varela will transcend and make an impact, just like famous humanitarians like Bono and Sting have impacted the World. God Bless his soul!
Catch the documentary on Friday, Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. on HBO Latino. Click here to see Carlos in an exclusive VIP performance.
