Singer/songwriter Jon Secada will embark on a recording and touring project that teams up two major Brazilian entertainment names: Label Som Livre and entertainment company Grupo Tom Brasil.

The project includes a live show titled “The Best of Jon Secada Live From Rio,” which will take place June 5 at Grupo Tom Brasil’s venue Vivo Rio, and which will be taped and recorded to release as a DVD and CD. The album and DVD will be released in October in Brazil through Som Livre, coinciding with a Secada tour, and will feature duets with Brazilian singer Marina Elali.

The project, financed in tandem by Som Livre and Grupo Tom Brasil, marries the strengths of both companies. Som Livre will not only release the album and DVD, but promote it via its machinery, which includes TV network TV Globo. Grupo Tom Brasil will present and promote Secada in its venues. The deal was brokered by entrepreneur JC Salvatierra.
