Mexican rock band Maná will perform for the first time at the White House today (May 5) for the Cinco de Mayo presidential festivities. Maná previously played for President Barack Obama in two other occasions: In 2012 during a campaign event in Las Vegas and in 2013 during Obama’s inauguration.
Members Fher Olvera and Alex González kicked off the Cinco de Mayo festivities a day earlier by participating in the Latino Talks panel in D.C. where they celebrated all Latinos have contributed to the United States. “It’s incredible to see how everyday so many Latinos are achieving amazing things in all different levels; sports, arts, politics, the list can go on and on,” said González.
Watch Maná’s live performance at 3 p.m. EST followed by POTUS remarks at 4 p.m.
The pro-immigrant and anti-Trump activists will kick off their national Latino Power Tour on Sept. 9 as a call to Latinos to get registered to vote for the upcoming presidential election.
