Laura Pausini's Cuban fans, rejoice! The Italian artist is confirmed to perform for the first time in La Havana.

For 25 years, Pausini dreamed of being able to travel to Cuba to sing. That wish came true after duo Gente de Zona invited her to perform at their free concert, taking place at Palacio de Deportes where they will perform “Hazte Sentir,” their collaboration.

The Italian singer shared the news on social media June 18, writing: “When I started my career, the first letters from Latin fans came from Cuba. From that moment, my desire to reach and sing to them became something I knew I had to achieve”.

Pausini's participation at Gente de Zona's concert will take place on June 26.
