A Very Special VOBS Backyard Concert with “Sol Y Canto!”


Don't Miss This Rare Opportunity To See And Hear Something Special!

Dan and George are taking some time off for Memorial Day and summer activities over the next month or so. But we want you to see the best of VO BS!

If you missed it when we originally aired this in November, and with so many new viewers to Voice Over Body Shop, we thought you'd like to see one of the most innovative shows we did this year. A backyard Concert with "Sol Y Canto,” our Boston bilingual VO friends, Brian & Rosi Amador and their up-in-coming, superstar, singer songwriter daughter, Alisa! Sol Y Canto plays original Latin music. We knew they were good, but after the first note, with much of it in Spanish, (with their translation explanations) you can't stop listening to their soul stirring harmonies, their great musicianship and loving songs.

We did this to help with the continued relief efforts to the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Show you care, you can still contribute to the cause!


We loved doing this special edition of VOBS and you'll love watching and hearing it. You can also say you saw Alisa Amador early in her career as she sang with her parents and played us her original material!
