Lastly, I know you do a good amount of non-profit work. I’ve read about the Jon Secada Music Scholarship at University of Miami and Keeping Music in Schools. What drives your work in these areas?
It stems from my love for education: where I come from, how grateful I am, how important I think education is. The reason I have a career in music is that I decided to study formally. So, I’ll always try to be a good example in that way and do whatever I can to help advance it.
Well, you’ve got a lot of irons in the fire —stage, music, dance, non-profit work, and even a restaurant. Where do you see your career taking you, say, in the next five years?
Right now, I’m so focused on the success of Otra Vez. I haven’t traveled or promoted a pop record in awhile, so I’m committed to wherever this record takes me musically, tour-wise, and getting the word out there. Still, I love entertaining. The opportunity to do a Broadway show, or go back to television — I enjoyed my time doing the Latin American Idol for four years — I would like the chance to host a show in some shape or form again. I’ve had a lot of great opportunities, and at this point I will entertain anything that comes my way.
