PR Newswire, Universal City, CA, June 7, 2016
On Sunday June 5th, El Dasa, lead actor of hit series “El Vato” offered a free concert at Universal CityWalk™ presented by NBC UNIVERSO where fans of all ages came to see their idol. Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo, popular radio host from Súper Estrella 107.1 FM acted as MC and presented the talented and charismatic singer from Sonora, Mexico.

El Dasa kicked off his performance singing “Perdí el Sombrero,” the theme song from “El Vato”, NBC UNIVERSO’s first original scripted series created for the Hispanic market in the United States. Then he followed with “Alegre y Enamorado,” a song that pays tribute to all the states of Mexico, and the excitement of the audience grew as he mentioned each home state. The evening spiced up when El Dasa started dancing his sensual hip movements while singing “Mentirosa.” However, the moment that provoked most effusive cries was when he dedicated “Por ser Bonita” to all the ladies. In addition to enjoying El Dasa’s hits and other classic songs, attendees got an exclusive early listen to his new single “Ya me vi,” from his new album, to be released this summer.

“I want thank NBC UNIVERSO for trusting me unconditionally and for betting on my talent to carry out the great project of “El Vato,” said El Dasa.
El Dasa also acknowledged the audience and stated: “This is why we are here tonight, because NBC UNIVERSO wanted to thank you all for supporting the series. Thanks to your support we are going to have a second season. None of this would’ve been possible without you,” he added.
That night El Dasa poured his heart on stage and literally gave it his all as he tossed his hat, boots and jacket to the audience. Before going on stage, El Dasa spent some time with a group of fans, radio listeners of “El Show del Piolín,” who entered a contest for the chance to meet him backstage. After his powerful performance, with the simplicity and humility that characterizes him, El Dasa took the time to please a long line of fans that chanted his name and waited eagerly to take pictures and get his autograph.
