Billie Jean


José Feliciano: Billie Jean In this 1987 performance video from the iconic German television programme, “Unhe Filter,” Jose performs Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.” Clearly Jose has always found Michael’s music to be extraordinary as it has been in his repertoire now for over twenty years. This performance is added here in tribute to Michael’s musical legacy and in gratitude for the kindness he personally showed to Jose.

Interesting side-point: notice his percussionist Bob Conti and keyboardist Greg Smith (Greg, incidentally worked with Michael on that album, Thriller). They still accompany Jose on stage today.

Papal Mass Video


Jose Feliciano is a Roman Catholic, practicing in the Diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut. His Bishop at the time, William Lori, invited Jose, his wife, Susan, and three children to the Papal Mass at Yankee Stadium on April 20th, 2008.

At that time, it was made known that Jose would see it as an immense honor to perform prior to the Holy Father’s Mass on that day. He was graciously given that opportunity and three songs were chosen in accord with the Holy Father’s theme of “Hope” which had been attached to his visit.

“Lean On Me,” by Bill Withers; “Che Sara,” an internationally known hit song for Feliciano and, the Lee Greenwood classic, “God Bless The USA” were performed before a packed Yankee Stadium and broadcast around the world.

Thank you to EWTN and Fox 5 for use of the video clip.

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan assigned a special task force to create the Hispanic Heritage Awards. Later, President Ford signed a proclamation creating Hispanic Heritage Week. In 2006,, the Hispanic Heritage Awards celebrated their 20th Anniversary in grand style at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.

José Feliciano, the 2006 Hispanic Heritage Honoree for Lifetime Achievement, was recognized as one of the very first Hispanic artists to successfully cross over into the English music market, influencing numerous performers who follow in his footsteps. Acclaimed by critics as “the greatest living guitarist,” He was joined by his wife, children and close friends as he acknowledged the grand honor.

Following his acceptance speech, his two sons, Jonathan and Michael who comprise the family band, “Two Kids and a Blind Guy,” joined him onstage and performed, “Oye Como Va.”
