Born in Argentina and raised in Miami, Colloca, who has four albums (three in Spanish, one in English) under his belt, is rapidly becoming the poster boy for the burgeoning Christian Latin-pop movement. Those who embrace Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, and Marc Anthony will find Colloca appealing. With a strong, supple voice, he serves up comparable musical rhythms—albeit with faith-filled lyrics. Such songs as the title cut and "Savior My Savior" are exuberant Latin pop anthems carrying Christian messages. Throughout, the songs are musically vibrant and lyrically uplifting with God's love and mercy celebrated as a recurring theme. Highlights include the poignant ballads "You Chose My Heart," "Close," and "Song of My Heart." Ultimately, Unconditional successfully bridges the gap between contemporary Christian pop and Latin music. Contact 305-234-3536.—DEP
