Jon Secada to perform in Sri Lanka

Three-time Grammy winner Jon Secada will perform live in Sri Lanka in December, ABC Radio (Gold FM) announced.

Jon Secada is to perform with his full band and he will sing some of his biggest hits including ‘Just another day’ and ‘Angel’ as well as some of his more recent songs.

Born Juan Francisco Secada Martínez on October 4, 1962, Jon Secada is a Cuban-American singer and songwriter.

He has sold 20 million albums since his English-language debut album in 1992. His music fuses funk, soul, pop and Latin percussion.

Secada also has worked as a songwriter for Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Mandy Moore and others.

Last year his father died from complications related to Hepatitis C as he failed to get the help he needed in time.

Secada then decided to lend his voice to a campaign to raise awareness among Hispanics about the disease.

On June 3, 2011, the heavily Cuban-American community of Union City, New Jersey honored Secada with a star on the Walk of Fame at Celia Cruz Plaza.
