Luis Fonsi Selected for Nobel Peace Prize, Um, Concert

Great minds like Luis Fonsi. The Puerto Rican singer will mingle with inspiring laureates when he performs at the 16th annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert on December 11 in Oslo, Norway. “It’s a true honor,” said Fonsi in an official statement. “It’s also a blessing to represent the Latin culture through my music.” The 31-year-old will share the stage with Wyclef Jean, Toby Keith, Donna Summer and Amadou & Mariam during a night hosted by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
 
The concert caps a stellar year for the romantic crooner, whose multi-platinum album Palabras del Silencio has made him a repeat chart-topper and earned him two Latin Grammy nominations for Record of the Year and Song of the Year (“Aquí Estoy Yo"). We hope he brings some of that Caribbean heat to the frosty Norwegian winter.
