Bay Area band with Concord connections, Legaci, The New York Times gracefully calls them on a front page feature, “The most visible yet invisible pop figures in the entire world.” Known all over the world as Legaci, these 4 gentlemen have been wowing audiences with their harmonies and vocal acrobats. Del Lazaro, Jason Atencion, Chris Abad and Micah Tolentino all hail from Northern California and for years shared a passion to make music that moves people; And move people they did. Legaci’s claim to fame was through Youtube. With over 28 million views and counting, it was Legaci’s Youtube channel and their cover of Justin Bieber’s smash hit “Baby” that got Bieber and his manager’s attention. They were asked to tour with Justin and be his official backing group. Since then they’ve performed at over 100 shows across 30 different countries, and appeared in major media outlets including American Idol, Oprah, and Saturday Night Live just to name a few. Now the fellas are ready to take center stage as they have released their long-awaited album “Driven - EP” (click to learn more) and prepare for their own world tour. Legaci is ready to build a Legacy! www.wearelegaci.com
