Legendary singer Thalia will be the main host, accompanied by Camilo, Victor Manuelle, and Prince Royce.
Thalía told Efe that she was “very excited” that this special is being held because “it is a very important global moment for women where we are well established, with super-active, fresh, new, different, empowered proposals in all ranges and all industries”.
She affirmed that the proposal for the special “was fantastic for me” because it will showcase the talent of the greats of music who “have paved all this way for us to be standing here and involve the new figures, the new generations”.
“I think it is a decisive and wonderful moment, Ellas y Su Música is a great initiative,” she said.
According to the Mexican, despite the fact that there are generational differences, Músical styles or the context in which they are placed, the artists of this event “we are souls that the only thing we want is to vibrate in the highest possible energy to spread hope, love, light and a struggle with strength, but a force of union, of integrity that characterizes us.”
“Putting aside any generation, any Músical type, border, country, we are here to unite through the love we feel for music, for our culture, for our roots,” she said.
