Jon Secada sets a romantic date for Sarasota on Feb. 14

secada-224x300Here’s a rosy way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved one: Chillounge Night is presenting “Return to Romance,” an outdoor concert featuring Grammy Award-winning singer Jon Secada at Sarasota’s Powel Crosley Estate.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. Feb. 14 show go on sale Nov. 17 (there are 980 tickets available). Priced at $160 and $140, tickets include catered food, a full liquor bar and the concert.

“The experience will be beautiful,” says Rainer Scheer, the Anna Maria-based founder of Chillounge Night. “It’ll be very romantic for couples. The mansion is a beautiful place for this.”

Secada has sold more than 20 million albums since his self-titled English debut in 1992. The platinum-selling album, produced by Miami Sound Machine founder Emilio Estefan Jr., included the Top 5 hit “Just Another Day.”

Born in Havana and raised in Hialeah, Secada was hired as a background singer for Gloria Estefan in the late 1980s; he also co-wrote her 1991 No. 1 hit “Coming Out of the Dark.” It was her first single more than a year after she was critically injured when her tour bus crashed during a snowstorm near Scranton, Pa.

Chillounge Night’s 2013 schedule includes Sarasota (March 9), Tampa (April 6), Treasure Island (April 13), Orlando (May 11) and St. Petersburg (Nov. 23). More information: (888) 695-0888;
