Pitbull played Central Park on May 31 and was the second performer to bring down the house during GMA’s 2013 Summer Concert Series. Last week, Mariah Carey opened the annual series when she had a wardrobe malfunction and let a curse word slip. This week, Pitbull kept the party going with no mishaps.
Armando Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, first performed on Lil Jon’s album “King of Crunks” in 2002. He released “M.I.A.M.I.” (which is short for “Money is a Major Issue) in 2004, “El Mariel” in 2006, and “The Boatlift” in 2007. In 2009, the album “Rebelution” spawned the hit single “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho).” Pitbull’s 2011 album, “Planet Pit”, featured the single “Give Me Everything” which was his first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100. The song reached #1 worldwide and featured artists Ne-Yo, Nayer, and Afrojack. Other recent albums include “Global Warming” and “Armando.”
Onstage, Pitbull truly brings his highly personalized style to life by harnessing the raw energy of his live band. The interplay between the singer and the musicians creates a festive, spontaneous atmosphere that is impossible to duplicate. “When the congas are pounding and the bass is thumping behind me, nothing can touch me. It feels like I’m riding a bolt of lighting,” Mr. Worldwide explains on his official website.
On Friday, Pitbull said “Good Morning America” and played three of his hottest hits. The singer got the crowd moving and on its feet with “Don’t Stop the Party,” “Feel the Moment” and “Outta Nowhere.” To watch his performance of “Feel the Moment,” be sure to check out the video below.
