The Pope and Juanes walk onto the Parkway...
If you are a Latino in Philly, news that Juanes will be playing the Festival of Families in Philadelphia in September is almost on par with the fact that the Colombian superstar will be on the same stage as the Argentine superstar — Pope Francis.
Last time Juanes was here, in 2013, at the Trocadero, Yesid Vargas (our art director) and his family got to meet and talk to Juanes. Another one of Juanes' fans and audience members in Philadelphia claims she was cured of cancer thanks to his music. We can't vouch for that, but can vouch for the fact we're excited that two of Latinolandia's true pop saints will be before us on stage of the World Meeting of Families and we'll get to hear them both at once, in Spanish!
In honor of this landmark moment in Philly history, we've compiled a playlist of AL DÍA staffers' favorite Juanes songs. So, in no particular order:
2) A Dios le pido
3) Es por ti
4) La camisa negra
5) La luz
6) Me enamora
7) La paga
10) Mala gente
11) Nada valgo sin tu amor
