The Kellogg Company is sponsoring a six-city tour of an all-star lineup of Latin performers in June 13-22.
MUSI Kellogg’s Tour 2003 will feature three-time Grammy winner Olga Tañon; Alicia Villareal of Tejano sextet Grupo LIMITE; Colombia native Cabas, who specializes in traditional Colombian rhythms and Latin pop; the "Princess of Tejano Music" Jennifer Peña; Bacilos, who currently tops the "Hot Latin Tracks" of Billboard; Marisela, aka "Latin Madonna;" and Aventura, featuring four Bronx-raised, Dominican cousins.

Kellogg will make cash donations supporting music education in each city on the tour. Donation recipients include, Chicago’s People’s Music School; New York’s Americas Society; Nuestras Raices Program at Miami-Dade County Parks and Recreation; San Antonio’s Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center; Talento Bilingue de Houston; and Music Center, Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles
"We are delighted to work with Kellogg on this project," says Bruce Moran, president CIE USA, the tour’s management company. "Kellogg is a household name among Hispanics both here and in Latin America. Together we will deliver the best available entertainment, to the U.S. Hispanic community."
Ticket prices are $30 to $85. Miami-based local promoter Arie Kaduri, and his staff at NYK, will assist with tours logistics.
