The most dignified Latin American voice is singing to Chicago.

Thursday, June 7, 2007 at 8:30 PM will be remembered for the best Latin American music in Chicago’s history. Mercedes Sosa, the voice of Latin America, will perform at the UIC Pavilion (University of Illinois at Chicago) with her special guest, Mexican singer Guadalupe Pineda.

Mercedes Sosa and her guest will be in their national tour, which will include songs from Sosa’s most recent CD, “Corazón Libre“, winner of the 2006 Grammy.

You will hear their old hits like “Gracias a la vida“, “Alfonsina y el mar“, “Canción a todos” or “Unicornio azul“, which when sung by Mercedes Sosa are truly anthems.
