–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–
ADVISORY for December 11 and 16
Icon of modern romantic music, Ricardo Montaner appears on V-me’s Estudio Billboard
December 11 at 10:00pm(ET) with encore on December 16 at 8:00pm.
On Estudio Billboard, Ricardo Montaner discusses with host Leila Cobo how he first made his mark writing and performing theme songs for telenovellas such as Tan enamorado for the soap-opera, Niña Bonita. He also spent some of his early career opening for the Spanish singer, Raphael.
Ricardo Montaner described his creative process starting early in the morning, “I’ve always believed in the dawn. It’s the part of the day I like the most.” He wrote one of his greatest hits, La cima del cielo shortly after he got married while watching the sunrise over the mountains in Caracas. “I can write a song because I’m in love. If I wasn’t in love, it would be complicated to write about love.”
Ricardo Montaner shares how he enjoys interacting with the audience during his concerts – a passion he found at his first vocal performance when he filled in for the lead singer in a rock band where he was the drummer, “this was the first time I saw the audience smiling at me while I was performing” and he was hooked.
