Recording artist Romeo Santos has ascended to the highest heights, literally. To celebrate the release of his new album “Golden” and a new partnership with the non-profit organization Note for Notes, Santos held a press conference at the Empire State Building during the morning, while at night the landmark building was bathed in ‘golden’ light in his honor.
During his birthday week Santos celebrated as his new single, ‘Imitadora’ dethroned ‘Despacito’ atop Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart.
Santos’ passion to directly reach into the Latin community brought him to Note For Notes, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that designs, equips, and staffs after-school recording studios inside Boys & Girls Clubs and after-school facilities offering youth the opportunity to explore, create, and record music for FREE. N4N Studios are packed with professional instruments – guitars, basses, drums, keyboards/synths – and equipment – DJ gear, digital music workstations – and full recording facilities.
This partnership with Romeo Santos allows for sustaining and expanding the Notes For Notes music programs in undeserved communities in New York City.
Santos, who is the first Latin artist to partner with the organization was joined at the morning press conference by Philip Gilley, CEO and Co-Founder of Notes for Notes. The lighting ceremony was handled by world-renowned lighting designer Marc Brickman who choreographed the Empire State Building’s lights to Santos’ “Carmin,” while being simulcast on iHeartRadio’s 103.5 KTU.
Being a part of the symbolic lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building is quite an achievement for any any artist. Santos ‘flipped the switch’ to turn the iconic tower gold. Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan (from base to antenna), the Empire State Building, owned by Empire State Realty Trust, Inc., is the “World’s Most Famous Building.” The skyscraper’s robust broadcasting technology supports all major television and FM radio stations in the New York metropolitan market. The Empire State Building was named America’s favorite building in a poll conducted by the American Institute of Architects, and the Empire State Building Observatory is the region’s #1 tourist destination.
