In The News : I Want You Back: Unity announces debut single feat. Tito Nieves.

FIU School of Music alumnus pays tribute to the King of Pop with Salsa all-stars.

Three years ago, Michael Jackson’s unexpected death shocked fans around the globe. Among the mourners was FIU School of Music alumnus and Artist-in-Residence Tony Succar ’08, MA ’10 who poured his personal despair over the loss of his idol into a stunning tribute album unlike anything the music world has ever heard.

Succar embarked on a musical journey to honor the life and legacy of the King of Pop. He began by recomposing Jackson’s iconic hits and infusing them with Latin rhythms, Jazz, World Music and American Pop. He then enlisted more than 80 musicians to bring his music to life, including world-renowned Latin recording artists Tito Nieves, La India, Obie Bermúdez and Jennifer Peña.

The result is a 14-song album called, “Unity: The Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson.” Succar’s compositions remain true to the essence and foundation of the original songs. He found parallels in the rhythms and weaved in tropical arrangements and Latin percussion, essentially uniting musical cultures, fans, and genres. The first single of the album will be released next month and the album scheduled for release in the fall.

I want you back

The first single, “I Want You Back,” features the vocals of Salsa mega-star Tito Nieves. The tropical version of the Jackson 5 classic has already received airplay on major stations nationally in New York, Florida and Puerto Rico and internationally in Peru. The single is set to drop worldwide on iTunes August 21.

“I’ve dedicated my whole heart to this extremely special project in homage to one of the most influential icons that has blessed the world with amazing music and messages,” said Succar. “I’m extremely grateful that this project has to come to life and is finally being introduced to the world.”

Last month Succar was named artist-in-residence for the FIU College of Architecture + The Arts School of Music, joining the ranks of award-winning artists that regularly perform and educate.

“Tony Succar is a passionate and talented percussionist, composer and arranger,” said Dr. Orlando Jacinto Garcia, director of the School of Music. “During his time as a student he set himself apart with a disciplined dedication to learning and emanated an infectious joy while performing. The faculty and I are proud of his accomplishments and look forward to welcoming him back for upcoming performances and master classes.”
