Heartbreak with a smile: Yuridia delights fans in concert

Mensaje por Staff el Dom 06 Nov 2016, 16:00

Consider Yuridia the diva next door. The singer, who entered the public eye 11 years ago through a Mexican reality show, has grown into a poised, confident performer with a voice that was born for wide-screen drama. Still, she has managed to retain the winsome charm that initially endeared her to audiences.

Yuridia’s concert on Saturday night at the Celebrity Theatre was her first Valley performance in four years. In the interim, she released “6,” easily her finest album. The disc is produced by George Noriega (Mana, Paloma Faith, Shakira), a solid indication of her growing importance in the industry.

She launched the show with the album’s “Así Se Fue,” an ode to unrequited love that is indicative of her taste in material. She is drawn to big pop-rock ballads that are filled with big, shattering emotions. Love rarely goes right in Yuridia’s musical world; instead she is scorned, wounded and kicked to the curb. Or, as she joked, she’s the woman who finds out her man is cheating by looking at his Instagram page.

The songs she offered in this angst-filled vein — “Lo Que Son Las Cosas,” “Ya Es Muy Tarde” and “Cobarde” among them — are all delivered with a powerhouse precision. Yuridia has an astonishingly big, dark-hued voice that never falters; in a way, her perfection recalls someone like Celine Dion. Unlike the Las Vegas diva, however, Yuridia manages to be soulful and evoke emotions, not simply wow a listener with her technical skills.

Still, as sad as the songs may be, Yuridia is never too broken up; even while belting out about heartbreak, she still smiles and waves at the fans. As in, “Hey, I’m just singing this song, I didn’t live it.” It doesn’t make the music any less effective, but it’s a cute trait that lightens the mood and makes her appear friendly and approachable. Perhaps too approachable: One man crashed the stage, wrapped her in his arms and had to be dragged off into the wings.

Yuridia, 30, who was raised in Mesa and has a young son living in Phoenix, treated the show like a homecoming. “I feel like I’m home here,” she announced to cheers from the crowd, though her cries of “Viva Mesa!” were met with slightly less enthusiasm. The audience loved her: She received bouquets, teddy bears and homemade signs from fans, who sang along with almost every sad word.

Still, not everything in the show was about heartache. She paid tribute to her roots by offering songs she performed on the reality show "La Academia," including Robbie Williams' "Angels" and Amanda Miguel's “El Me Mintió.” She softened her tone for the affecting regional ballad “Si Quieres Verme Llorar” — still sad, but breathtakingly understated. The bluesy “En Su Lugar” was terrific (she had a hand in writing that tune) and showcased an unerring control over her upper register. Her strong seven-piece band moved through the different styles with ease.

Just to make sure the evening wasn’t all sad songs, she offered a rousing medley of Selena tunes with two dancers. With its slick choreography, multiple costume changes — think lots of lace and glitter — and an engaging diva front and center, a Yuridia concert manages to make an evening of heartbreak downright fun.
