MIAMI, Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Palace Resorts – the company that sets the standard in five-star, all-inclusive resort accommodations – proudly hosted the celebration of the year with international superstar entertainer, Ricky Martin. The Grammy Award winning singer rocked the stage at an exclusive sold out concert at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort on Saturday, December 28, 2013.
Known around the world for his spectacular live performances, Martin sang in front of more than 13,000 resort guests, local fans and VIPs. He kicked off the night with his mega hit “Come With Me,” and left the audience wanting more after closing the evening with “Maria.” The 18 song set list included standouts from his vast catalogue including classics such as “Shake Your Bon Bon,” “She Bangs,” and “Cup of Life.”
Following the concert, the hotel hosted local socialites, government officials and other hotel VIPs at the property’s onsite nightclub, Noir. One of the latest additions from the resort’s recent multi-million dollar enhancement project, Noir offers a striking mix of cutting-edge design and glamorous nightlife.
Both a Grammy and multiple Latin Grammy winner, Ricky Martin is the leading Latin music figure of his generation – beloved by fans worldwide for his instinctive understanding of rhythm, passion for performing, and equal compassion for giving. The international superstar has sold more than 60 million albums and has been the recipient of dozens of prestigious international awards saluting both his career achievements and far-reaching philanthropic efforts through the Ricky Martin Foundation. Following the global success of his 2011 album Musica+Alma+Sexo (which achieved the highest chart debut for a Spanish language album in more than 15 years) and its ensuing arena and stadium world tour – Martin made his highly anticipated return to Broadway with a critically-hailed performance in the first revival of Evita. The first half of 2013 saw Ricky Martin take over a coach’s chair on The Voice Australia, and use his time ‘down under’ to record his newly released high-energy single “Come With Me.” The track signals the beginning of a new music phase that finds Martin hard at work recording songs for his next full album.
“Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort has become synonymous with unmatched entertainment offerings,” said Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President of Palace Resorts. “Closing out the year with an icon such as Ricky Martin is a testament to the superior quality experiences we offer our guests. We couldn’t think of a better way to say goodbye to 2013 than with a holiday stay in paradise complete with an electrifying performance from Ricky Martin.”
