People like Pepe Aguilar, Enrique Bunbury and Pablo Alborán interpreted the grouping that was born at the end of the 80s.
"This is a taxi driver, an architect, or a secretary-like job, we felt very normal, we weren't like superstars, we felt more superstates when we were little, and we had nothing." We are still happy with the enjoyment of music, from what we do, to continue living with people, "said Fher Olvera.
The show, organized in Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, began with Draco Rosa in Puerto Rico, called "Adicto a tu amor" with violinist Ara Malikian.
Sebastián Yatra of Colombia said that with the song "Oye mi amor", to continue with a jazz touch from the Monsieur Periné group, he sang to the rhythm of the ballad of "The Rain didn't rain".
Farmer Iza and Piso 21 went on stage as the song "Hechicera", while the farmer, Pepe Aguilar, gave her own style to the song "Mariposa Traicionera", accompanied by Mariachi.

The party ended with a pigeon hole by Maná. Fher Olvera thanked the artists who said he continued to believe in music.
"You don't just crush the music that puts women in a brutal way, but you don't have to treat women that way."
