A few days ago, Jay-Z announced the Made In America music festival in Philadelphia Labor Day weekend. Interestingly enough, I am excited something this major is coming to the city I live in.According to a GlobalGrind article, "Expected to headline the event, Jay will round up 28 acts of all different music genres for a two-day concert series September 1-2 held at Philadelphia's Fairmount Park." While Jay also mentions a diverse act, I can't help but think the genre will be a little biased.
Back in 2002 I went to a Shakira concert at the Wachovia Center (Philadelphia) and since then all Latino concerts have moved to Atlantic City, NJ. Marc Anthony, Chayanne, Jennifer Lopez, Tito El Bambino among others have all performed in our area, but in NJ. Would it be crazy to assume Shakira will make the Made in America concert? Actually, no! I recently read a Latina.com article which stated Shakira was indeed part of Jay-Z's Roc Nation. Imagine that.
