LATIN POP BAND CAMILA JOINS THE 2014 MISS USA® COMPETITION MUSICAL LINEUP SUNDAY, JUNE 8 ON NBC (8-11 P.M. ET)
NEW YORK, NY — June 4, 2014 — The Miss Universe Organization announces Latin pop band Camila will join the musical lineup for the 63rd annual MISS USA® Competition on Sunday, June 8 (8-11 p.m. ET) from The Baton Rouge River Center in Baton Rouge, La. Immediately following the international release of their new album, ELYPSE, the band will take the MISS USA stage for their first official public performance since the record’s launch on Wednesday, June 3. Camila’s set will be added to Sunday’s musical roster along with Florida Georgia Line and special guest Nelly, Marc Broussard, and The Dirty Dozen Brass Bands. Giuliana Rancic, co-anchor of “E! News,” and Thomas Roberts, MSNBC’s “Way Too Early” will host the competition.
Soaring to the top of the charts in Mexico and beyond, award-winning composer, singer and producer Mario Domm created the leading Latin pop-rock band Camila in 2005 with guitarist Pablo Hurtado. Their two metric hit albums, Todo Cambió and Diamond certified Dejarte de amar, turned the group into one of the most successful Latin American bands of all time selling more than two million copies. Songs such as “Abrázame,” “Mientes,” and “Alejate de mi,” among others, have made them big winners in the industry. The album’s popularity brought them to win three Latin Grammy Awards and three Latin Billboard Awards coining them as one of the most awarded groups from Latin America for the last decade.
Their third studio album ELYPSE marks a new chapter of success for Camila with the new hit single, “Decidiste dejarme.” The MISS USA telecast on NBC will be the first English speaking network the duo performs on marking a crossover for them domestically in the US.
