Regueton Artist: Mey Vidal

Dear Editor:

I am writing to introduce female Reggaeton Artist, Mey Vidal.

Mey Vidal, daughter of Cubans, and granddaughter of Spaniards. A young singer – composer, born in the small town of Palma Soriano, Santiago de Cuba. At the age of 5, her brother would unite the neighbors to have her sing. Back then, her stage was the living room, her wardrobe consisted of long white bed sheets, and her microphone was her hairbrush. The first time she set foot on a professional stage, occurred at the age of 12, day in which she was chosen as soloist for an event of her school choir. There she discovers her passion for music and ever since then she has not stopped. She continued her carreer as an artist by singing in weddings, celebrations, discothecs, fundraisers, and concerts.

She was the singer for the Salsa Band “Vine Street Rumba Band”, of her small town, and in search of experiences and opportunities, she participated in events such as American Idol-Orlando, Star Search-Jacksonville, Giants of the Tommorrow-NY. She gained first place in the singing contest of Sabado Gigante- (Univision), and Fiesta Gigante (Telefutura). Several remember her as the entertainer, model and singer of the program Next Level TV. The young lady has appeared in live television programs such as MUN2TV of Telemundo “THE ROOF”, Next Level TV, and America TV 41 Channel “The SHOW Of FERNANDO”. She performs in large annual events such as, Miami’s Festival Calle Ocho, Orlando FL’s Festival Calle Orange, Ybor City Parades -Tampa FL, and many more. Mey opens shows for artists like, Daddy Yankee, Trebol Clan, Grupo Mania, Guanabanas, Puerto Rican Power, The Chosen Few Tour, and others. Mey Vidal does not include the crude language that is used commonly in reggaeton. Her lírics are positive and direct toward the things the youth goes through, and towards the great obstaculos of the immigrant. In her own words she expresses, “My music is for uniting different cultures, and for the youth to take good paths”. Mey has always been full of dedication, ambition and carries loads of energy. In the artistic atmosphere because of her down to earth personality, unique style, and for being the first Cuban female in the genre, she is well known as “That Cuban Girl”! Her music is a combination of reggaeton in English and Spanish. His website receives more then 95,000 visits a month, and many of those visitors subscribe to her fan club.

Mey is attracting approximately 1500 people per performance, and receiving great revisions from the media. Her CD “Reggaeton Miami Style” will be released this July 2005. I welcome you to visit her website www.meyvidal.com.
