Pianist Arthur Hanlon´s New Single Breaks Into Billboard Charts



Dates to Arthur Hanlon’s “Encanto del Caribe” Tour Soon to be Announced



What do you get when you mix the spirit of Motown with urban bachata beats?

Arthur Hanlon, the only pianist to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin charts, is on his way to repeating the feat with new single, “I’ll Be There (Allí Estaré),”  a bilingual cover of the Jackson Five hit, sung by rising New York/Dominican star Karlos Rosé.


The track entered the Billboard charts week of release and is climbing day by day.


With “I’ll Be There,” Arthur, born in raised in Detroit—home of Motown—brings together the music of his city with Latin rhythms and his exhilarating piano.


In looking for the perfect singer for the track, Arthur sought someone who now only had an extraordinary voice but also understood both Motown and bachata. That someone was Karlos Rosé, who already reached No. 1 on Billboard’s charts and who with “I’ll Be There (Alli Estaré)” will no doubt encore the feat.






“I heard “Ill Be There” for the first time in my crib, as a baby,” said Arthur. “That song, like every Motown song, is part of my DNA, and I’ve played them all my life, from my very first professional concert at 16. Bringing together my Motown with my Latin soul is is the most exciting thing I’ve done in a long time.”


“”The song is amazing. So far it’s one of my best performances,” said Rosé. “The first time I heard it on the radio I almost had a heart attack! I’m so blessed to work with Arthur, great artist !”

Arthur produced the track with guitarist/singer and multi-Grammy winner David Cabrera, who’s worked with Ricky Martin, Leona Lewis and Christina Aguilera, among others.


“To me this track takes Bachata to another level,” says Cabrera. “The fusion of Bachata , Arthur  Hanlon ‘s distinct piano style mixed with dance club rhythms and Karlos Rosé’s  soul makes it one of a kind. A fresh take on a classic …..”


This summer, Arthur will take “I’ll Be There (Allí Estaré)” to Puerto Rico, Miami, Nueva York and Los Angeles as part of his “Encanto del Carbie” tour. Dates to be announced soon!


“I’m anxious to start the tour and, I hope to see you!” said Arthur. “I’ll Be There!”
