As we mentioned earlier this morning during our Enchufate segment on 91.1FM Vocalo, one of the highlights we most enjoyed from Los Dells festival in Wisconsin was the alluring and powerful performance by artist Raquel Sofia. Her lyricism, which delves into the torment of love and all it entails, along with her impassioned vocals, create a poignant musical experience that no one should ever miss and that’s why today, we are honored to present the premiere of a new live video for her single, Mi Última Canción.
Raquel has been releasing live video performances as a show of appreciation for those who enjoy her sounds and we are definitely lovin’ your sounds, Raquel Sofia.
Raquel is not only a vocalist and composer, she is also a talented musician and artist. Before beginning her solo career, she performed with Juanes as his guitarist and also sang with Shakira! Her debut album, Te Quiero Los Domingos, was nominated for a Latin Grammy. Her sophomore album, 2:00AM is out now and available on all digital platforms.
Raquel has been living in Mexico City since early this year. She’s been touring that country while also creating new music with songwriters. Today, she heads back to her native Puerto Rico where she’s set for an evening performance.
