Spanish Singer Alejandro Sanz Dedicates New York Concert to Dreamers

NEW YORK – Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz performed at New York City’s famous Madison Square Garden on Saturday and dedicated his concert to the undocumented immigrants in the country, popularly known as “Dreamers.”

This was the second concert after the opener in Chicago on Aug. 28 of Sanz’s sold-out United States tour to promote his new studio album El Disco, as well as a new movement in defense of Dreamers – who get their name from the DREAM Act, a bill that aimed to grant legal status to undocumented immigrants who were brought in to US by their parents as children.

“I haven’t been to the US in nine years and I wanted to dedicate this tour to them because they are an example in every respect. (They want to) forge a future, do things with their lives,” Sanz said at the packed venue.

He then sang his 2009 single with Alicia Keys “Looking for Paradise” as well as songs from his new album and his 1997 hit “Corazon partio” (Broken Heart), which was his international breakthrough.

“Thank you so much for coming, it’s amazing to be back in New York. It is a city that has many links with me: my son Dylan was born here, my daughter Manuela studied here, I have many friends... I’d pay to see her again for the first time. It’s everyone’s city, let’s enjoy it,” the artist said.

The spectators, which included Latinos and people of all ages, sang along with Sanz and wandered down the aisles to take videos, much to the annoyance of the security guards, who unsuccessfully tried to stop them.

In the face of the wide variety of flags being waved by the audience – ranging from those of Venezuela and the Dominican Republic to Spain and its southern region of Andalusia – Sanz declared: “all those flags I carry here,” while pointing at his own heart.
