Latin n' Soul Take Manhattan based in Montreal Quebec, Canada features 22 of the city’s finest talent on stage delivering a sizzling hot performance of Latin, Soul, R&B, Reggaeton and Dance hits.
Latin n' Soul Take Manhattan was originally created for a major fundraising event for the Jewish General Hospital Foundation with the proceeds benefiting Women's Health Care Initiatives. Initially the production was to be presented live at Place des Arts (performing arts centre in Montreal) in May of 2021, with a full audience in attendance. However, as fate would have it, COVID-19 health regulations altered those plans and the production transitioned into a “Musical Concert in Film” and was recorded at the venue with no audience.
The film premiered in Cinemas Guzzo, a prominent regional chain of movie theaters located in the province of Quebec. This was the FIRST time a Canadian musical production of its kind had a debut performance introduced to the public in a cinematic format.
Latin n' Soul Take Manhattan was a resounding success helping to raise over $2 Million for a noteworthy cause. It was also streamed internationally and viewed in 16 countries which included the U.S.A, Japan, France, U.K., Australia, UAE, Spain amongst others.
Currently the show is being developed into a musical with a live concert feel and rebranded as Latin n' Soul Take Manhattan: The Musical. The production will be an interactive and electrifying multimedia experience with an original story set in New York City.
Grammy Award-winning songwriter-producers Autumn Rowe & Kizzo have signed on to compose original songs for the musical. They won "Album of the Year" at the 64th Grammy Awards for “We Are” by Jon Batiste, the Oscar-winning composer and former musical director for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. They respectively co-wrote and co-produced a number of songs on the album, including the single “Freedom,” which was nominated for “Record of the Year” and won the Grammy for “Best Music Video”.
Individually, they have collaborated with some of music's biggest names, such as Dua Lipa, One Direction, Pink, Usher, Becky G, Jason Derulo, Agnez Mo, Dianna Ross, Ne-Yo, Zendaya and Daddy Yankee amongst others.
