Between the 30-minute opening set by all-female mariachi band Flor de Toloache and the headlining set from Chilean singer Mon Laferte, the crowded Fillmore burst into song on Saturday, Oct. 16.

With each new Latin song played over the sound system, the crowd grew more energetic – in song and in dance. As Mon Laferte took the stage, those in attendance were primed for a night full of music in a variety of styles, including pop, rock, cumbia, salsa and bolero.

While the vast majority of people inside the Charlotte venue were singing along, language wasn’t a barrier when it comes to Mon Laferte’s singing. Her voice soared with emotion – gripping the audience with heartache and helping them forget their troubles with elation.

It’s no surprise that she’s won a few Latin Grammy Awards and it would be no surprise if she wins more in the future. Be sure to catch her performance the next time you get the chance.
