Karol G continues to amaze us, as just a few days ago, we saw her shining at the Latin Grammys ceremony, taking home several awards, including Album of the Year for «Mañana Será Bonito.» Later, she swept the Billboard Music Awards with an otherworldly performance directed by none other than Parris Goebel.

Now, millions of fans have reacted on social media to a clip of the singer giving a concert this week for the female inmates at the Ibagué Prison Complex in Colombia, her homeland. Many users have wondered why the artist chose this location to kick off a very special and meaningful tour.

Why has Karol G Gone to Sing in Prison?

The Medellín native has started her concert tour here as part of her Cora Tour, promoted by her own social entity, the Con Cora Foundation. It’s a journey through different parts of Colombia «with the aim of bringing joy, entertainment, and support to vulnerable populations.» The tour will visit hospital units and penitentiary centers across the country, «conducting an equipment analysis to identify specific needs and provide assistance where possible,» according to the Foundation.

«We are very proud to embark on this ‘Con Cora Tour,’ inspired by the social mission of our founder Karol G and with the purpose of bringing light and hope to vulnerable communities,» emphasizes Valentina Bueno, Director of the Con Cora Foundation.

The Con Cora Foundation, whose general director is actually Carolina Giraldo, aka Karol G herself, was created with the goal of carrying out the social work and mission of the artist to support women in vulnerable situations. In this way, her assistance is primarily directed toward empowering various populations whose rights are violated, especially single mothers, at-risk youth, girls and boys with chronic or debilitating illnesses, teenage pregnancy, women deprived of liberty and post-sentenced, those with low economic resources, among others.

At LOS40 USA, we are impressed by how much the artist has contributed to influencing different fields, promoting and defending the rights of women in various areas. We love it!
