Telo Catch You

“Telo Catch You” was about Brazilian pop singer Michel Telo, whose viral, global hit “Ai Se Eu Te Pego” (Ay, If I Catch You) was booming around the world when Telo came to Miami to perform on the Billboard Latin Music Awards in late April. The Brazilian community in Miami is one of Miami’s fastest-growing and biggest immigrant communities, but it is also a recent presence in the city with little connection to the rest of Miami’s ethnic groups. “Telo Catch You” captured a sense of Brazilian culture and character for the rest of the city, as well as the pride Brazilians’ felt in Telo’s success and their country’s growing presence on the world stage.
