Valentina López, Undergraduate Student at Berklee’s Campus in Valencia, on Performing at Innovation ¡En Vivo! – Fall’s Edition

With Innovation ¡En Vivo! just a day way, here’s a sneak peek into the life of amazingly talented Valentina López:

My name is Valentina López, and I’m a 21 year old Ecuadorian singer-song writer. I started my music career at the age of 17 and since then I’ve had the great honor to open for Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Melendi and Big Time Rush back in Ecuador! I also had the opportunity to be nominated and win a few awards in Ecuador. My major at Berklee is Music Production and Engineering, and at the moment I’m a study abroad student at the Valencia Campus. For this Innovation ¡En Vivo!
