An Evening With José Feliciano

The GRAMMY Museum will welcome multi-GRAMMY-winning musical icon and Latin GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipient José Feliciano for an intimate conversation moderated by Scott Goldman, followed by a performance. The Puerto Rican-born musician, singer, and composer is known for many international hits, including his rendition of The Doors’ “Light My Fire,” “Che Sarà,” “La Copa Rota,” “Por Qué Te Tengo Que Olvidar?,” and the theme song, “Chico and The Man,” from the hit television show. In 1968, Feliciano stirred national controversy and made history as the first artist ever to stylize the U.S. national anthem. His soulful recording of the “Star Spangled Banner” became the first version of the anthem to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. His classic 1968 cover of “California Dreamin’” is currently featured on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s acclaimed film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. José Feliciano’s anticipated new album, Behind This Guitar, out January 31 on Anthem Records, reunites the artist with his longtime producer, Rick Jarrard, and comes in the wake of the 50th anniversary of the singer/guitarist’s breakthrough success and his first GRAMMY Awards.
