NEW YORK (AP) — Gilberto Santa Rosa will make his Broadway debut in the musical "Forever Tango," which returns to New York in July for a 10-week stand and will feature some of the Puerto Rican singer's hits.

Santa Rosa told The Associated Press: "I haven't stopped jumping, screaming and pinching myself because I still don't believe it."

The revival of Luis Bravo's show opens July 9 at the Walter Kerr Theatre and Santa Rosa, the singer of such salsa hits as "Medias negras," ''Perdoname" and "Amor mio no te vayas" will spend three weeks as a guest vocalist.

Future vocalists will be announced later.

"Forever Tango" originally opened on Broadway 1997 and earned multiple Tony nominations. It returned for a limited four-month engagement in 2004.
