Jorge and other 3 Peruvian tenors will be performing songs by Queen, Coldplay, Elton John, Joan Manuel Serrat, Verdi, legendary Peruvian singer and composer Chabuca Granda, among others. Around 30 musicians will be on stage.

Jorge is a former winner of the singer awards “International Music Festival Vina del Mar”. If you’d like to watch the hit song “Mi alma entre tu manos” (My soul between your hands) that made him a glorious double-award winner, click here (go to 4:50 in the video to listen him perform this amazing song).

Well done, guys! Wish you as much success as your first series “Tenores I”.
