J.W. Cortés (a 2012 HOLA Award honoree) is scheduled to sing the Star-Spangled Banner this weekend (November 9-11, 2012) before both the New York Knicks-Dallas Mavericks game (at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan) and the Brooklyn Nets-Orlando Magic game (at Barclays Center in Brooklyn) in commemoration of the former venue’s Military Appreciation Night, the 237th anniversary of the United States Marine Corps (Cortés is also a Marine and a Gulf War veteran) and the U.S. holiday Veterans Day.
Francisco Ramos is currently filming The Hardest Love (written and directed by Henry B. Roa), where he plays Latin freestyle singer Víctor Velásquez today, many years after the heyday of Latin freestyle music (the 1980s-early 1990s). The film has released a promotional music video of the song “Let Me Love You”, from the movie. The video features Ramos, in character as Velásquez (billed here as “Victor Velazquez and DJ Lugo Gee”, the latter played by Gilbert Lugo) in his heyday (the video is supposed to take place in the late 1980s).
