Uforia — Univision's radio broadcasting and music events division — is considered by many the Home of Latin Music. Now, it's launching the Uforia Hangout Sessions, a weekly digital livestream series of unfiltered and intimate at-home experiences with Latin music's biggest stars starting Wednesday May 6 at 8 p.m. ET. Presented by Verizon, the first session will feature Manuel Turizo and be hosted by Jackie Guerrido.
Every Wednesday, fans will be able to watch, ask questions, and interact with artists on UforiaMusic.com/Verizon and Uforia's Facebook and YouTube channels, as well as enjoy some surprise at-home performances. Confirmed artists so far include J Balvin, Nicky Jam, Sebastián Yatra, El Fantasma, Christian Nodal, Calibre 50, and Yandel with more to be announced.
Univision personalities Guerrido and El Bueno, la Mala, y el Feo hosts Raul Molinar, Carla Medrano, and Andrés Maldonado will serve as hosts to the Pop/Rhythmic, and Regional Mexican sessions.
Besides interacting with the hottest Latin superstars, viewers will be encouraged to support local businesses in their own communities by shopping online, ordering a meal, or buying a gift card to be used when businesses reopen, as part of Verizon's Pay It Forward Live initiative in support of small businesses affected by COVID-19.
