Justin Luna is a 13 year old boy from Hatillo 5. He got home from school one day and his mom told him she had great news. They had received a call saying he was invited to be a special guest in the 12th gala of the Teletica show “Tu cara me suena.” He was noticed and chosen thanks to his interpretation of rancheras at the Central Market of San José. He couldn’t believe it.
Minutes before going on stage he said that it still seemed like a dream. He was surrounded by great artists and said that his nerves were much stronger than usual but he knew that when he got on stage he would forget that and sing as never before. And that he did. He surprised the audience with his powerful voice and got a standing ovation.
Justin’s passion for ranchera music came about from hearing his mother sing. He sings thanks to her. He performs without any sound, just his voice. She watched his performance with tears in her eyes.
The boy hopes to study Criminology, realizing that living on music in Costa Rica is almost impossible.
He’s glad to have met on the program people he already admired such as Jorge Chicas, Fofo Madrigal and Luis Montalbert.
