Miami native Karina Iglesias takes center stage at Unity on the Bay to perform her usual boleros, jazzy-pop style of hip-hop and American classics on Friday, July 12, 2013 at 8:00 pm. Iglesias, as seen on NBCâ€™s #1 hit TV show â€˜The Voiceâ€™, performs with Nu-Thang and special guest artist Monique Abbadie. Tickets on sale at www.unityonthebay.org. Ticketed pre-party reception starts at 7pm.
â€œThis concert is my own spin on top popular music. Itâ€™s my personal vocal touch on a mix of jazz, pop, and blues songs along with some new, original material,â€ said Iglesias, songwriter and singer. This is Iglesiasâ€™s first concert since leaving â€˜The Voiceâ€™.
In 2013, Iglesias was a top 16 contestant on NBC’s #1 hit TV show â€˜The Voiceâ€™. She was originally a member of Team Adam, after a two-chair audition that included Blake Shelton, and was later stolen by Shakira after her epic performance of â€œIt’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s Worldâ€, which became a YouTube sensation.
Born and raised in Miami, Florida to Honduran parents, the saucy, soultress songwriter is a long-time South Florida vocal favorite. The Miami Dolphins hired her through Emilio Estefan to sing the anthem at all home games, as part of the ensemble Dolphin Voices, in 2009. She was featured on Univisionâ€™s Mira Quien Baila and has taken the stage with numerous Latin artists.
Adam Levine, â€˜The Voiceâ€™ coach said after Iglesias audition: â€œI felt like for the first time on the show, that possibly, that towards the end, that the light fixtures were just gonnaâ€™ explode, because [she is] a great singer and [she] really deserves to be here, so congratulations.â€
Special guest artist Monique Abbadie takes the stage with Iglesias and the Nu-Thang at the concert. Abbadie is a pop artist who has performed at the legendary House of Blues Los Angeles, Planet Hollywood Las Vegas and Miami’s Gusman Center, among many others places. She has also been on NBCs hit show â€˜The Voiceâ€™ where she recently participated on Team Shakira.
