Former Jesuit Rocks Out

It’s got to be a good show when an 82-year-old former Jesuit priest rocks out. Leon Isaza yelled and sang along to lyrics like a young schoolgirl, pumping his fists into the air while Colombian superstar Juanes belted out a decade’s worth of award-winning songs infused with Latin folkloric rhythm and fierce guitar. While Isaza, a Colombia native, stuck out in a crowd of mostly 20- and 30-somethings Sunday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles, he couldn’t help but be electrified by one of the most influential and dominant Spanish-language artists of the era, who feverishly bounced around the stage, giving his best to fans on the third stop of his worldwide tour behind his new album P.A.R.C.E.  ........The crowd roared as Juanes personally waved to fans, including his wife and daughter in the front row, and sent a smile and wave to Father Isaza, though the two don’t know each other. Isaza promptly put his cane to the side and swayed along to most of Juanes’ songs, rarely sitting down for a break.
