Billboard and W Hotels are gearing up for the third and final concert in this year’s Next Up: New Artists, New Music series, featuring intimate performances with rising musicians. R&B/pop powerhouse and The Voice Chile finalist Camila Gallardo will grace guests of the W Hotel in Santiago, Chile on Nov. 8.
Since finishing as runner-up of The Voice Chile‘s inaugural season in 2015, Galladaro has built a strong following through her emotive pop that combines a range of influences from Amy Winehouse‘s soulful swagger to Violeta Parra’s Chilean folk. This year, she has released two new songs: “Un Poco Más De Frío” and “Abrázame.”
“Last year’s Next Up series and partnership with W Hotels was a tremendous success, bringing music fans across the United States closer to artists that have strong voices and fresh perspectives,” says Julian Holguin, Billboard’s SVP of brand partnerships. “Billboard looks forward to the continued partnership with W Hotels to highlight music’s best new talent, and shine a spotlight on some of the best up-and-coming artists making music today both in the U.S. and abroad.”
This year’s Next Up concerts have featured the likes of LÉON in New York City and Sofi Tukker in Los Vegas. Fans can access exclusive behind-the-scenes video content from these shows and others on Billboard.com and W Hotels’ music platform, The Angle.
