Spanish singer Rosana was presented with the keys to Miami, where she will perform Feb. 23 as part of the U.S. tour for her new album,"¡Buenos dias, mundo!."

Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado made the presentation in a ceremony at city hall attended by Spanish Consul-General Maria Cristina Barrios Almazor.

"For me this is something very special, it's like a warm embrace from a good friend. I'm absolutely overwhelmed," Rosana told Efe.

"We've been on tour since Oct. 11, 2011, and until the end of 2013 around the world, and we wanted the United States to form part of this tour for the first time," she said.

The singer, who has sold 10 million albums since bursting onto the scene in 1996, said her upcoming Miami concert will feature cuts from the new disc as well as a sampling from a "pile of songs that fortunately make up part of the lives of an interesting handful of people."

Rosana's Miami show will be followed by a Feb. 26 performance at Stage 48 in New York. EFE
