Viviana Hurtado Interviews International Rock Star Juanes on NPR Talks Plans to "Crossover" into English, Return to Cuba on Tell Me More with Michel Martin
While guest hosting NPR's nationally syndicated program Tell Me More with Michel Martin, I landed a big "get" that has been in the works for four years--interviewing international rock star Juanes. In an in-depth 17 minute feature story, he opens up about his plans to "crossover" from Spanish into English, his advocacy for issues such as land mine eradication and HIV awareness and prevention, as well as his desire to one day play again in Cuba, despite the controversy his 2009 performance in Havana caused among the Cuban-American community. A special acoustic performance accompanies our conversation and closes the one hour show.
The interview airs Thursday, August 23rd.
