NEW YORK:- Top names in Latin music will perform next week at the US-Mexico border to send a message in support of diversity before the racially charged US presidential election in November. Leading Spanish-language US network Univision on Wednesday announced that the “RiseUp As One” concert will take place on October 15 at the Cross Border XPress, the walkway that connects San Diego and Tijuana’s airport.

Artists to play the live-broadcast concert include Colombian superstar Juanes, leading Mexican pop singers Natalia Lafourcade and Julieta Venegas, Spanish pop star Alejandro Sanz and veteran Colombian performer Carlos Vives. The lineup will also include rising US soul singer Andra Day, a protegee of Stevie Wonder who is from San Diego. The concert will not be overtly partisan but comes shortly before the November 8 presidential election, in which Republican candidate Donald Trump has railed against immigration.
