ole Signs José Feliciano to Record Puerto Rican Anthems in Support of the Flamboyan Arts Fund

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ole, one of the world’s premier music and entertainment
companies, is pleased to announce that it has concluded a worldwide deal
with international superstar, José Feliciano, to record the
national anthem of Puerto Rico, “La Borinqueña”, and “En Mi Viejo San
Juan” (In My Old San Juan), considered by many Puerto Ricans to be the
country’s second national anthem. The deal consists of the exclusive
worldwide rights to both master recordings which will be released
through ole’s label group on Anthem Records.

Twenty percent of ole’s proceeds from these recordings will be
donated to the Flamboyan Arts Fund, an initiative dedicated to
preserving, amplifying, and sustaining the arts in Puerto Rico by
supporting all facets of the arts community including: music, theater,
visual arts, dance, literature, and youth arts direction. The fund was
established as a partnership between Lin-Manuel Miranda, his family,
Jeffrey Seller (the producer of HAMILTON), and the Flamboyan

ole’s Chief Executive Officer, Helen Murphy, commented, “José
Feliciano is a global music icon. While it is impossible to
summarize his career and contribution to music in a few words, he has
been a hit maker across the world for over five decades and he continues
to trail blaze. I am thrilled to be recording these songs with José and
I know that making this music, at this time, conveys a heartfelt message
from José to the people of Puerto Rico. We are very proud to have José
signed to ole and we hope that the recordings will help raise
awareness and funds for the rebuilding of Puerto Rico.”

Said Feliciano, “Throughout my life, creating and performing
music has comforted me and has provided joy to my fans worldwide. This
is a significant opportunity for me to contribute to the enhancement of
the arts in Puerto Rico. I am grateful to ole for their passion
and support.”

On Tuesday, January 15, Feliciano will perform “En Mi Viejo San
Juan” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he will be joined
by award-winning Puerto Rican singer-songwriter, Ozuna. Broadcast from
Puerto Rico, the show will also feature guests Lin-Manuel Miranda, Bad
Bunny, and Chef/Activist, Jose Andres, and will highlight the islands’
culture as well as the restoration it still faces.

José Feliciano is a nine-time Grammy and Lifetime Achievement
Award-winning Puerto Rican-born musician, singer and composer. He is
known for many international hits, including his rendition of The Doors’
“Light My Fire”, “Che Sarà”, “La Copa Rota”, “Por Qué Te Tengo Que
Olvidar?”, and one of the best-selling Christmas songs of all time,
“Feliz Navidad”. In 1968, Feliciano stirred national controversy
and made history as the first artist ever to stylize the US national
anthem. His soulful recording of the “Star Spangled Banner” became the
first version of the anthem to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. For more
