It was an epic day at the Empire State Building when the King of Bachata Romeo Santos announced his support of Notes for Notes. The Bronx native, whose new album “Golden” dropped on the world the following day, celebrated his generous support of our Brooklyn (and forthcoming Bronx) Studio at a “flipping of the switch” ceremony at the Empire State Building. Romeo’s support of our New York programming marks the most generous gift we’ve received since opening the Brooklyn Studio as well as the first Latin artist to partner with us.
Today at the Empire State Building we showcased a wonderful program that continues to emphasize something that is near and dear to my heart, the gift of music. Notes for Notes ~Romeo Santos via Facebook
In the lobby of one of the country’s most iconic buildings defining the NYC skyline we stood for dozens of camera’s capturing the moment. A group of some of our most talented Brooklyn members were in attendance to celebrate the partnership. Standing next to one of the most successful Latin musicians on the scene our members got a glimpse of where a fellow New York musician can go. That night ESB’s lights synced to his newest single, Carmin, making Romeo the first Latin musician to receive the honor.
It’s nearly impossible to describe the feeling of how far Notes for Notes has come to receive such an honor. Ten years ago we could have never imagined that the opening of one studio in Santa Barbara would lead to 17 studios nationwide and the support of one of Latin’s biggest stars. As Notes for Notes is a testament to dreams coming true so was this event for our members who got a taste of what is to come if they continue to follow the music.
Thank you to Romeo, Roc Nation, the Empire State Building team and all those who in attendance to share is such a monumental day. Thank you for making our 10th anniversary a “Golden” one!
