Get your groove on with our musical performances! Marjorie De Sousa and Elysanij will bring their powerful songs to People en Español's Festival en CasaVenezuelan actress Marjorie De Sousa —the star of telenovelas like Hasta el fin del mundo, Mi marido tiene familia and Al otro lado del muro— will sing 'Ni diabla ni santa.'

"Many people identify with it because of the times we're living in now, especially with social media, where people share their opinions, judge and point fingers and has no idea what really happens, because you don't really have to tell everything that happens in your life," she says. "It's a song that invites you to dance, to live it and enjoy it and to say who cares what other people think because it's not reality."

Puerto Rican singer Elysanij will perform 'Mátame.' "This song to me personally means strength, bravery, self-love," she says. "As an artist it means everything to me since I can bring my songs to many people that can hold on to me and awaken, and take action about whatever is harming them."

The young star from La Isla del Encanto —whose real name is Janielys Maldonado— caught everyone's attention with her heartfelt Spanglish version of the Lauryn Hill song "Killing Me Softly."
