Summer Forest Concert: Gina Chávez
A genre-defying queer Latin Grammy-nominee with club-ready beats.
In an industry that looks to define artists, Latin Grammy-nominated Gina Chávez refuses to fit into a box.
From features on NPR’s Tiny Desk to Brené Brown to Colbert, this queer, bilingual, genre-bending musician has become a force to be reckoned with. Chávez—a truly independent recording artist—saw the fruits of her labor pay off last year where she was not only nominated for a Latin Grammy but was tapped to open the Latin Grammy premiere show. Now, the Texas native can be seen everywhere as one of the faces of LifeWTR’s #LifeUnseen campaign—with her own bottle and a commercial airing nationwide. There’s no way around it: Gina Chávez won’t be ignored.
Alternative R&B singer Pura Coco takes both her Latin culture and her southern upbringing to create her unique sound. Born in New York City and now based in Northwest Arkansas, this passionate young writer and vocalist continues to work on her craft, conveying a multitude of emotions that further connect with people through her music.
* Please Note: Though tickets for youth ages 18 and under are free, a ticket is required for entry. Reserve these tickets online or with Guest Services.
