San Francisco, U.S.A. — The Legendary Jose Feliciano comes full circle. He sang the National Anthem at the San Francisco Giants game Sunday, October 14.
Mr. Feliciano made history in 1968 when he sang his rendition of the National Anthem. His performance caused major controversy at the time and most radio stations stopped playing his records. In retrospect, his version showed off his signature style which made him a household name and catapulted his career earning him 9 Grammy’s to date and international stardom.
His latest CD… available now… “The King… by Jose Feliciano,” visits some of Elvis Presley’s greatest hits as well as some of Jose’s favorite Elvis songs.
After over a year in his private studio, Jose handpicked twelve Elvis songs. He arranged each one, played all of the instruments, recorded all of the background vocals and branded each song with his own distinctive voice and guitar genius.
Recently, Mr. Feliciano traveled to Australia, Korea, Canada and more. He is now set to go on a US tour. Please check his website for tour dates. For more information please visit: www.josefeliciano.com/ or follow him on Twitter:@wheresjose
