In another tweet, the President described as moving the story of the musician, a survivor of Covid-19, who during the evening expressed his gratitude for the collaboration between doctors from the northern nation and his country of origin to save his life.

Accompanied by the Habana Jazz orchestra, the Entrevoces choir and the Amadeo Roldán conservatory student band, Herrera also shared the stage with the National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of its principal conductor Enrique Pérez and the American conductor, Marlene Pauley, invited for the first time to the contest.

As a fervent defender of dialogue between peoples, the Minnesota-based artist arrived in Havana with a solidarity load made up of medical supplies and musical instruments that went to the hands of the students of the island’s artistic education system.

The musician starred in two of the over 15 concerts held at four venues in the Cuban capital during the Festival, a contest that opened the calendar of events on the island and was present in person, online and through the national television signal.
