Latin Grammy winning pop group REIK has been invited to perform at the Clive Davis Theatre at the Grammy Museum on Tuesday, February 21. In this special intimate evening that benefits the Grammy Museum, Jesus Navarro (vocals), Julio Ramirez (acoustic guitar) and Gilberto “Bibi” Marin (electric guitar) will perform a special acoustic set and be interviewed about their influences and songwriting by author and Billboard Executive Director of Content and Programming for Latin Music and Entertainment, Leila Cobo. Cobo’s new novel, The Second Time We Met, will be released on Feb 29 (Grand Central Books). Other artists who have performed at the Grammy Museum include John Legend, Colbie Caillat and Ringo Starr.
Reik’s first big breakthrough in the music scene came in 2005 with their debut single “Yo Quisiera,” which gave way for the release of their self-titled album to become a hit soon after. Powerful and energetic, Reik continues to grow musically through touring and songwriting. Without losing their essence, they have continued to evolve their sound as evidenced on their latest release, Peligro, which debuted at #3 on the US charts and continues to be a top performer on iTunes.
Reik will have a super charged visit to the U.S. in February. In Miami, they will perform on Univision’s top rated show Premios lo nuestro where they are nominated for Pop Album of the Year and Pop Song of the Year for Peligro, and film a television spot for AT&T. When they return to Mexico, they will film the video for ‘Creo En Ti’, the third hit single from Peligro.
Reik are ambassadors for VH1’s Save the Music campaign and for the Ronald McDonald’s Children’s Charity.
