Jon Tarifa



As a little kid in Albania, Jon Tarifa wanted one thing: to be a professional football player. He had no teddy bears in his bed, but a soccer ball instead. Fortunately, he had a Plan B: to become a singer. He looked admiringly at his cousin, namely Eneda, who was serenading the entire family with her mini performances when she was six years old. Jon also wanted to do that…

In October 2016, Jon Tarifa became world news with his latest single “Don’t Go”. The song was used in a tribute video for Barack Obama which went viral on internet and even reached the likes of CNN India and The New York Times, to only name a few. The video was also shared by both of President Obama’s daughters on social media. As a result, Jon was invited to perform on various TV programs in the Netherlands, such as the popular RTL Late Night and Hart van Nederland, among others. In the meantime, the video has reached over 55 million views and 1.4 million Spotify streams. Soon, there will be an official release of the song in the United States by Interscope Records.
