Jenny Love at The Betsy Hotel on South Beach

Jenny Love at The Betsy

Jenny Love, a delightful, charming, 3rd Generation Cuban American vocalist and musician had the audience at the Lobby of the upscale and glamorous The Betsy Hotel on South Beach enchanted and mesmerized with her dynamic ballad, bi-lingual, jazz repertoire. A genius interpreter of songs of every musical genre imaginable!

As a Hispanic, Cuban American one usually finds themselves with one foot here & one foot there, especially in the sounds of music that we carry within us. Jenny’s smooth & impressive bi-lingual jazz selections certainly beyond satisfied and exceeded the expectations of my inner musical soul. It was a bolero meets jazz emotion, that still has me on Cloud 9 today!

Like the notes on a sheet of music, Jenny’s heavenly voice resonated across the lobby, playing with all of the emotions of the heart, making you cry then, in uplifting & joyful sound, laugh in a moments time.

Seldom does one listen to an artist perform a cover music piece in a manner that improves the song over the original artist. Jenny Love possesses just this talent! Simply put, she is the female Michael Buble. Her interpretation of Alicia Keys “If I Ain’t Got You”, was spot on and very moving. The fluidity and versatility in her voice is remarkable. Jenny sang “Contigo a la Distancia” in Christina Aguilera fashion (Christina’s being my definitive favorite rendition, up until listening to Jenny sing the song). The singer let her voice soar with it’s power & range, reaching and hitting some extremely high and difficult chords & notes. Jenny also sang “Misty” in a warm, melancholic, nostalgic & silky tone reminding the listener of what excellence in music was all about.

One of the things that I enjoyed the most about the performance is that Jenny took requests from the audience, that she sang live, unrehearsed, nailing each and every selection. Improvisation in true magnificent form! She sang John Lennon’s “Imagine”, by request, one of the most extraordinary interpretations of the evening.

Humberto is one of the few guitar players who can be said to successfully strum in both the Spanish & English language.

Accompanying Jenny this evening on acoustic rhythm guitar, was guitar virtuoso Humberto Eduardo Upierre. Humberto played the ballads sung, with a rhythmic punch, which were the perfect accompaniment to Jenny’s refined & delightful star quality voice. The master guitarist brings to the table the love & passion for the traditional music of the Caribbean island, together with experience, and an extensive background in musical theological studies. It is impressive to listen to & watch him play. Humberto is one of the few guitar players who can be said to successfully strum in both the Spanish & English language.

Voice & guitar instruments in unison, Humberto exquisitely blended in perfect key with Jenny’s voice. The artists performed a duet in perfect, harmonic fusion.

Jenny Love’s performance was a memorable, enjoyable and breath-taking experience. The singer is certainly destined to achieve nothing less than super stardom status! Her next performance is this coming Thursday, November 17th at Bongo’s Cafe at the Hardrock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida. Can’t wait to see what surprises her extensive & diversified song repertoire delights the audience with then!

To all music fans,

Not only does she sing in this type of “upscale” setting (I attended her first night with wife and friends) but on the times she has sung at the charity biker events around town (on many occations for many causes) she has transformed herself to a true rock star and offered an alternative you have to expirience! The next opportunity would be at the up comming “Bike Night” (note: everyone is welcomed, bike or not) at Bomgo’s, take the time to be there and believe me no one will be disapointed.
