Lehman Center for the Performing Arts is proud to present the return of Manny Cruz on Saturday, June 3 at 8 p.m. The international music sensation from the Dominican Republic will wow audiences with this very special performance. Cruz is already a four-time Latin Grammy Award-nominated singer, composer and star of Bachata, Merengue and Pop-balada music. The night will feature an opening performance by Judy Santos.

Cruz was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and is a vocalist and composer. At age 14, he began his musical career in Miami. His songs “Sabes Enamorarme,” “Dime Pa’ Que,” “Tarde,” “Sobrenatural,”  “Bailando Contigo,” and more recently “No Me Lo Creo” with Eddy Herrera, have made him a favorite in the Dominican community. In 2018, he was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Tropical Fusion Album for “Sobrenatural.” He collaborated with singer Martha Heredia on the 2018 track “Tienes Dueño.” He also recently released his new album”Cuatro 26″ on April 26. The album consists of a total of nine songs, including collaborations with Zacarias Ferreira, Jandy Ventura, Youmaico and Milly Quezada.

Santos is a Dominican-American singer and songwriter who has achieved remarkable success both as a collaborator with bachata band Aventura and in her solo career. Her duet with Romeo Santos on the chart-topping single “Obsesión,” from the album “We Broke the Rules” by Aventura, garnered international recognition. In her solo career, she made an impact on Billboard’s tropical music chart with her debut single “Tú tienes tu vida.” With singles like “Secreto,” “Loca” and “Demos paso al amor,” and the live album “Judy Santos Live,” her talent and success has extended to her partnership with Wilmore “Bimbo” Franco on the song “All By Myself” and her single “No me rendiré,” produced and co-written by Grammy Award winner Chris Hierro, which reached No. 24 on the Billboard Tropical Airplay chart in 2021.
