New Sony/BMG recording artist, Jean will be one of music’s most promising artists.  There is no doubt that he will become one of the greatest Latin Crossover superstars to date, and if there were skeptics, after last night, they have been converted into die hard fans. Recording company giant, Sony/BMG held a musical showcase last night at South Beach’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel, as part of the Billboard Latin Music Conference which is going on all this week.  The performers were made up entirely of Sony/BMG’s new artist roster. The entire night was filled with great music and talent, but no one expected to get what they got from Jean.  His music was this eclectic mix of Latin pop, mixed with gritty R&B, a sound that had been absent from Latino music for too long. Flawless would be the word of choice to describe his vocal performance. From up beat dance songs, to slow jams that made all the ladies swoon, his vocal flexibility and charisma were superbly showcased. With songs both in English and Spanish Languages, Jean will undoubtedly be a huge crossover phenomenon.  This rising star will have no trouble shinning at the top next to today’s top singers. In a time where music was beginning to lack substance, Jean shows up with this incredible voice and writing talent and once again reminds us what music is all about. Jean’s debut album will be out in stores on May 16th, 2006.


Nuevo artista musical de la casa disquera, Sony/BMG, Jean será uno de los nuevos cantantes mas prometedores de esta era de musica. Sin duda, el será un gran súper estrella de musica Latina y Crossover, y si habían escépticos, después de anoche, todos se han convertido en grandes fans. La gigantesca compañía disquera, Sony/BMG tuvo un showcase musical anoche en el Ritz-Carlton Hotel de South Beach, FL como parte del Billboard Latín Music Conference que esta llevándose a cabo esta semana entera. Las actuaciones de la noche fueron completamente de los nuevos artistas de Sony/BMG. La noche estuvo llena de buena music y mucho talento, pero nadie espero recibir lo que recibieron de Jean. Su show fue compuesto de una mezcla ecléctica de Latin Pop, y ardiente R&B, un sonido que ha estado ausente en musica latina por un tiempo demasiado largo. Sin defecto seria un término bueno para describir su actuación. Con sus temas súper movidos y bailables, y temas mas del estilo mas seductor de R&B, su flexibilidad vocal y carisma  fueron espectacularmente demostrados. Con canciones en español como en Ingles, Jean tiene gran futuro de ser un fenómeno del Crossover. Esta nueva estrella no tendrá ningún problema brillando en alto al lados de los artistas más famosos de hoy en día. En una era que la musica estaba comenzando a perder sustancia, llego Jean su gran talento vocal, y como escritor y logro hacernos recordar realmente como debe ser la musica.  El nuevo disco de Jean será disponible en tiendas en Mayo 16, 2006.
