“We are so proud to partner with Southwoods again this year to produce such an amazing event,” Eric Ryan, CEO of JAC Management Group and JAC Live said. “Pitbull has collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the world, including Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, Ke$ha, Jason Derulo, and more! He is not playing Cleveland or Pittsburgh, so we are fortunate he chose to play for the Valley.”
Southwoods’ Concert for the Valley was created last year to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of The Surgical Hospital at Southwoods. Ed Muransky, President and CEO of The Muransky Companies and Southwoods Health, sees the concert as giving back to the community in many ways, including bringing exciting, big name artists to the Mahoning Valley. Last year’s inaugural event featured a sold out Lionel Richie performance.
“The Covelli Centre and their team have been instrumental partners in our quest to build upon last year’s success,” said Muransky. “Our concept for the event has been two-fold; we want to give back to the community, and we want to celebrate it as well. Pitbull is no exception and builds upon those themes. It will be an incredible party!”
In keeping with the theme of giving back to the community, Chris and Ed Muransky and The Muransky Companies will be contributing to the United Way of the Mahoning Valley for children’s programs. “So much of what we’ve been able to achieve is because of the patients and families who have entrusted Southwoods to serve their healthcare needs, as well as the physicians, nurses and staff who deliver compassionate, world class care every day at Southwoods facilities,” Muransky said.
Born Armando Christian Perez, Pitbull is quite simply a hit-maker. After a meeting with Lil Jon in his native Miami, he was featured on his Kings of Crunk album that would later catapult him to an appearance on the 2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack the following year. His first major commercial success came from his fourth album that produced the billboard hot 100 hit “I know you want me”. Often collaborating with the biggest artists in the world including Jennifer Lopez, Ke$ha, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Marc Anthony and more; Pitbull (aka Mr. Worldwide infuses Latin beats with modern rap.
He has 10 albums to his credit, 1 Latin Grammy, multiple American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards.
