Reggasetón rising singer VF7 (real name: Valeria Fernández) will offer her first-ever concert, one without an audience, at Puerto Rico’s El Coliseo de Puerto Rico June 19.
As part of El Colseo’s “Quarantine Live Concerts Series,” the teen’s virtual show, live from the island’s biggest venue, follows Rauw Alejandro’s livestream from El Coliseo on May 16 when the venue opened its doors for the the first time since the COVID-19 lockdown.
“I always dreamed of singing at el Choli. I am very excited and I want it to be huge. I will give it my all for all my fans around the world,” VF7 said in a statement.
About VF7’s show in El Coliseo, its general manager Eduardo Cajina said, “El Choliseo is known internationally as the house of reggaetón, which is why we’re very happy to be the venue where VF7 will offer her first concert,” he said. Adding, “we want to take this opportunity to congratulate this young Puerto Rican artist for making a name for herself in the urbano genre. We know she will achieve many things and it’s an honor to be part of her artistic career development.”
Spotlighted in Billboard‘s list of 17 Latina artists to discover during quarantine, VF7 had major plans this year including her first tours of Spain and Mexico, which were ultimately postponed amid the global pandemic.
The virtual concert, sponsored by El Coliseo de Puerto Rico and Sora and Company, will take place June 19 at 8pm ET and can be streamed via VF7’s YouTube channel.
