FAIRFIELD, Conn.-- International superstar and Fairfield County resident José Feliciano will perform in concert near home at Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m.
Feliciano is recognized as the first Latin Artist to cross over into the English music market, opening the doors for other artists who now play an important role in the American music industry. He has been awarded more than 45 Gold and Platinum records; he has won 19 Grammy nominations and nine Grammy Awards, including the LARAS Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Feliciano has written and recorded countless hits, the three songs that have become milestones for Feliciano in his career are his original interpretation of The Doors’ “Light My Fire,” which topped the charts globally in 1968; “Che Sara,” a 1971 San Remo Music Festival entry that became a mega-success for José throughout Europe, Asia and South America; and “Feliz Navidad,” the Christmas song that has now become a tradition worldwide during the holiday season every year. It has become a top iTunes download, and ASCAP has placed it among the 25 Greatest Holiday Songs of the Century.
