Starting out with the funky “All Night Long” by Lionel Richie, “Higher Ground” by Stevie Wonder and “Oye Como Va” by Tito Puente, the audience pumped up with an electrical current. These were all smart choices as the lighting brought us back to the disco era. During the entire concert we learned in details about this this Latin Canadian, as he revealed his upbringing and shared the secrets of his life with us.
