Singer/songwriter Ricardo Montaner, recipient of Billboard's 2007 Spirit of Hope Award for humanitarian work, has revealed a star-studded show to benefit his foundation, La Ventana de Los Cielos. The concert will take place December 19 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, and will feature Montaner along with several artists, including Carlos Vives and Luis Fonsi.
Titled "Nosotros También Somos Niños" (We Are Also Children), the show will benefit Montaner's foundation, which he established two years ago with wife Marlene Rodríguez to help children with down syndrome and cerebral palsy, among other diseases and disorders.
"Having artists work together to help is not new," says Montaner, highlighting the work of several foundations. "We have been doing it to rescue the forgotten and give love and help to those who need it the most."
The "Nosotros También Somos Niños" show will be backed by Unicef and sponsored by SBS Radio and Mega TV. The show will be produced by Tony Mojena and tickets are available via Ticketmaster.
