Former Disney Channel actress Demi Lovato will appear this February at the Iquique Festival in northern Chile, where she will share the stage with Colombian pop star Juanes, organization sources said Saturday.
With this performance the 19-year-old singer of Mexican, Irish and Italian descent will make her third appearance in Chile, where in 2009 she sang backup for the Jonas Brothers, an American boy band, and where in May 2010 fans turned out to catch her solo act.
The contest kicks off Feb. 3 with performances by the trio comprising Spain’s Alex Ubago, the Colombian Jorge Villamizar and Lena Burke from Cuba, who will then cede the spotlight to Chilean singer El Gitano and reggaeton star Tito El Bambino.
On Feb. 4, Juanes and Demi Lovato will alternate onstage, while the next day, the last day of the festival, will feature Chilean balladeer Myriam Hernandez and Mexico’s Juan Gabriel.
Lovato starred as Allison “Sonny” Munroe on the Disney Channel children’s sitcom “Sonny with a Chance” in 2009 and 2010, but she announced last year after undergoing treatment for an eating disorder that she would not be returning to the show.
