About Armando Christian Perez (Pitbull)

From Mr. 305 to Mr. Worldwide, Armando Christian Perez, aka Pitbull, rose from the streets of Miami to exemplify the American Dream and achieve international success. His relentless work ethic transformed him into a Grammy®-winning global superstar and business entrepreneur.  Along the way, he’s has been the subject and host of prestigious cable and network specials. His music has appeared in “Men In Black III” and “The Penguins of Madagascar,” and he even had a starring voiceover role in the animated 3D movie “Epic.” Landing No. 1 hits in over 15 countries, nine billion YouTube/VEVO views, 70 million single sales and six million album sales, Pitbull does not stop. His social networking channels include 59 million Facebook followers (@Pitbull), 22 million Twitter followers (@Pitbull) and 4 million Instagram followers (@Pitbull), plus more than eight million YouTube subscribers (PitbullVEVO and PitbullMusic).

Making global music, Pitbull flaunts a style that’s indisputably his own. Releasing his full-length debut, “M.I.A.M.I” in 2004, followed by the success of 2006’s “El Mariel” and 2007’s “The Boatlift.” In tribute to his father, he delivered his first Spanish-language album, “Armando,” in 2010. He grinded it out on the road and touched down everywhere from the Far East and South America to Europe and all across the U.S. His success continued as he went on to release additional chart-topping platinum hits, including “Timber” [featuring Ke$ha], “Fireball” [featuring John Ryan] and more. Pitbull will release his tenth full-length album, “Climate Change,” after wrapping his second headlining arena run – “The Bad Man Tour,” named after the “Climate Change” hit single – and performed on the 2016 Grammy Awards. On “Freedom,” he sums everything up: “Went from a poor kid to a well-known all-around-the-globe world-class citizen, man I paid all my dues and earned my stripes took all the wrong in my life and I made it right.” That’s the dream, and Pitbull’s showing everybody it’s possible. Dale!

ENDEMOL SHINE NORTH AMERICA & MAJOR TV ADAPTING CHRIS PEREZ’S TO SELENA WITH LOVE FOR TELEVISION

Studios Developing Series For Both English and Spanish Audiences Based On Best-Selling Book About Latin Superstar’s Love Story

para-selena-con-amorEndemol Shine North America and Major TV have optioned the television rights to Chris Perez’s To Selena With Love, the best-selling book that tells the late Latin music superstar’s love story through the eyes of her husband.

Endemol Shine and Major TV are adapting To Selena With Love for both English and Spanish TV audiences with Blue Mariachi, Perez and Carlito Miranda’s production company. Endemol Shine, Major TV and Blue Mariachi are also developing additional culturally-driven scripted and non-scripted content together.

In To Selena With Love, which was first published in 2012 (English and Spanish), Perez recounts for the first time his compelling, forbidden and ultimately tragic love story with one of the most revered Latin music stars, Selena Quintanilla. The TV series will also include details, stories, perspective and insights which were not covered in the book from Perez’s perspective.

Major TV is led by Raymond Garcia, formerly publisher and founder of Celebra at Penguin Random House, where he published numerous best-sellers with top authors such as Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, and Perez, author of To Selena With Love.

“I spent several years keeping the memories of my late wife bottled up inside,” says Perez. “To Selena with Love allowed me to finally embrace my experience and understand the void it could fill in the hearts of so many others. I am now ready to take the important step of being fully transparent and bringing my everlasting relationship to life on the screen.”

“Selena is one of the most influential Latin artists of all time and her legacy continues to live on long after her tragic death,” says Endemol Shine North America CEO and Endemol Shine Americas Chairman Cris Abrego. “Chris Perez’s beautiful book To Selena With Love captured their amazing life together and will make for the perfect foundation for a TV series that our team is currently developing for both English and Spanish audiences worldwide.”

Added Major TV’s Garcia, “I could not be more honored and humbled to launch Major TV with Endemol Shine and the captivating love story of the legendary Selena Quintanilla and Chris Perez. Having published To Selena with Love, I witnessed legions of fans moved to tears with a rare glimpse into the heart and soul of their eternal icon. I am very proud of Chris for sharing his deeply personal relationship for the first time on television.”

Grammy Award-winner Selena Quintanilla is one of the most influential Latin artists of all time, having sold 60 million albums world wide. The Texas-born singer made her recording debut in the ’80s, going on to become an award-winning recording artist in the Latin music scene with albums like Amor Prohibido and Selena Live. In 1995, she was tragically murdered by the founder of her fan club. Her last album, Dreaming of You, was released posthumously in 1995 and became a huge hit. Selena’s life story was the subject of a 1997 film, Selena, which starred Jennifer Lopez in her career-propelling role as the Tejano superstar and James Edward Olmos as her father.

Day 1: The Holidays According to Kristin

untitled
Hey everyone!

So my classes are finally settling down and I really wanted to concentrate more on original content. What better way than to include exciting holiday information?! For the next month, I’ll list some of my favorite gift ideas and some of my favorite holiday moments and traditions over the years.

My hope is that my readers will comment their thoughts, feelings, and even some of their favorite holiday moments and traditions. Talk to me! I want to know what the holidays are like for you and your family. Even if they’re rough this year. As some of you might know, my father passed away unexpectedly last year, so the holidays could be bitter sweet at times. So even if you just need to vent or feel like someone understands what you might be going through, you can count on me.

With that being said, I want to start out by sharing three of my favorite holiday songs right now. My dad was one of those people who would listen to Christmas music NON-STOP after Halloween, and it seriously drove me nuts! I just never understood how many times he could hear ‘Frosty the Snowman’ or ‘Winter Wonderland’ without wanting to quit Christmas altogether. Thankfully, one of my favorite artists right now, Pentatonix, has two Christmas albums that have been released over the last two years and they’re full of updated, fresh holiday music. Their talent is off the scales and they can really put you in that holiday spirit.

 

 

 

Here are the links to their Christmas albums on iTunes. Check them out, and let me know if you have any favorites! You can also find the top two albums below on Vinyl, which would be an amazing Christmas gift!

Pentatonix: That’s Christmas to Me

Pentatonix: A Pentatonix Christmas

Pentatonix: PTXmas (Deluxe Edition)
