“Over the course of my career I’ve had the privilege to perform in many exciting places alongside many talented people, and the chance to perform on A Tiny Audience in Spanish has definitely been a highlight for me,” said Robin Thicke. “Latin music and Latin culture are so diverse and so beautiful, and the opportunity to celebrate that has been beyond incredible.”
“Some of my all-time favorite environments to perform in have been intimate settings,” said Leslie Grace. “Playing for ‘A Tiny Audience’ was a dream. Getting the chance to connect and share some anecdotes behind the music to an audience a few feet away reminded me of the beautiful communal experience music creates. I truly had a blast!”
«Season Tres became really special. After shooting A Tiny Audience Season 2 in a full Covid bubble, this one was less restricted, but the artists clearly still had a lot of the Covid issues on their mind and went deeper into how it affected them and their mental health than we expected. For many it was the first chance to be in front of a real, close-up audience again, they felt it and their performances reflected that,” said Creator of A Tiny Audience, Maurice Keizer.
A TINY AUDIENCE, SEASON THREE also includes a tribute episode to the inimitable Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz, with performances by Jon Secada, Silvestre Dangond, Alejandra Guzmán, and Cimafunk.
The intimate setting created on A Tiny Audience allows the artists to showcase their vulnerability and share real-life experiences. Becky G, Carla Morrison, Leslie Grace, Jessie Reyez, Danna Paola, Ximena Sariñana each opened their hearts discussing mental health and even shed a few tears discussing their individual journeys in the music industry. During Domino Saints’ performance, brought to us by Mastercard, we witnessed a Priceless moment, as guests with hearing impairments were able to enjoy the music using state-of-the-art technology. There are also many joyous and lighthearted moments throughout this season with electric performances by Jay Wheeler, Guaynaa, Zion Y Lennox and Robin Thicke which got the audience dancing on their feet.
