Michael Buble recently recorded this Latin standard. I like to give my singers the opportunity to sing a variety of styles each year, and Latin songs are one of their favorites. Your students will love Latin partner dancing. Challenge your singers to perform it in Spanish. Loaded with ninth and thirteenth chords, the harmonies are easy to sing due to excellent part writing that flows. There is an optional sixteen measure dance break that would be greatly enhanced with the addition of horns. Latin music typically demands a good trumpet player and drummer.
