MIAMI, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Terra, a global digital media company and content producer with a presence in 19 countries and American Family Insurance are pleased to announce the winning band that will be performing in “Terra Live Music in Studio” this Wednesday, October 30 at 4:00pm ET. Diluvio, a pop rock band from Tucson, Arizona, received the most votes and was selected as the next Latino Music Star in the “Persigue tu Sueno” (“Follow Your Dream”) contest, gaining the opportunity to live out their dreams and start a new music career in the United States.
Eight talented unsigned artists from seven cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Tucson competed to perform in the next Terra Live Music concert, available online and via smartphones and tablets.
“Terra is proud to announce Diluvio as the winner of this Latino music talent search,” said Ingrid Otero, Terra’s Director of Programming. “Diluvio will be our next Terra Live Music in Studio artist and they will have their music live streamed on Terra to reach a global audience.”
“We are happy to offer these young musicians the opportunity to follow their dreams and become the next Latino stars,” said Dwayne Maddox, Regional Media Manager of American Family Insurance. “This band represents the young people who are pursuing their dreams to succeed in the music industry,” he added.
The band started singing at a young age when the members met at a local church choir in Tucson. They chose rock as their musical style of preference to express their culture; however, they like to include fusions of different music genres such as pop and punk.
“We are thankful to American Family Insurance, Terra and our fans for having selected us in this incredible contest,” said Danny Perez from Diluvio. “We hope this encourages all young artists to continue working and pursuing their dreams,” he added.
The audience still has the opportunity to share their dreams at http://www.terra.com/persigue-tu-sueno/3000/ for a chance to win 3,000 in cash.
