TRAGEDY STRIKES PUERTO RICO’S NATIONAL GUARD

PORT WENTWORTH, GEORGIA

Surveillance video captured a 1950’s-era military cargo plane plunging to the ground. The C-130 aircraft exploded into flames on a busy Georgia highway Wednesday, May 2, killing all nine crew members aboard.

The Puerto Rico National Guard plane took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport shortly before 11:30 a.m. and was headed for retirement.

Surveillance video from a nearby business captured what happened next, CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann reports. The plane banked left before nose-diving and spiraling into the ground. Seconds later, a fireball and black smoke went shooting into the sky.

The plane crashed into the median of the highway, narrowly avoiding traffic, warehouses and a nearby gas station.

The pilot was identified as Maj. José Rafael Román, who hails from the coastal town of Manatí along Puerto Rico’s north coast. The mayor of that town, José Sánchez, told The Associated Press that Román had two young boys and his wife is five months pregnant with a girl.

“The town is in mourning,” Sanchez said.

“My condolences to all Puerto Rican families.”

On Thursday, the Puerto Rico National Guard identified the other crew members as 1st Lt. David Albandoz, Master Sgt. Jean Audriffred, Master Sgt. Mario Brana, Master Sgt. Eric Circuns, Master Sgt. Víctor Colón, Senior Airman Roberto Espada, Senior Master Sgt. Jan Paravisini and Maj. Carlos Pérez Serra.

NO DISCUTAMOS

(Let’s not Argue)

I’m including here another music video of a song included  in the LOS DUOS 2 album.

The world of Latin music and entertainment is still reeling from the loss of this musical giant.

His talent, his performances, his personality, his ‘quirks’ ….

… all of him, will be terribly missed.

What is going on with 2016?

So many musical giants lost.

His music will live on forever.

LOS DUOS 2

Los Dúo, Vol. 2 is the thirty-first studio album released by Juan Gabriel on December 11, 2015. It features many artists singing duets with Juan Gabriel. A DVD will also come with the album.

Patricia Giovanna Cantú Velasco (born November 25, 1983), known professionally as Paty Cantú is a Mexican singer-songwriter and occasional actress, who rose to fame as one of the founding members of the successful Mexican pop Duo Lu alongside Mario Sandoval.

JUAN GABRIEL

He hailed from Mexico.

He wasn’t a rapist, he wasn’t a murdered, he wasn’t a drug dealer.

He was a unique human being who shared with this public an amazing talent.

He had an incredible source of inspiration.

He wrote songs for many other fellow artists and shared with his public amazing works of art.

He was a superstar Mexican songwriter and singer who was an icon in the Latin music world.

His music influenced the lives of many fans and marked the career of many fellow musicians.

He will be sorely missed.

His music will live eternally on.

Sad today!

Juan Gabriel, 66, was a man of grand ­performances, gestures and especially songs — including eight No. 1s on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. His fans have devoured his music for more than four decades.

He spanned the whole Latin world: Mexico, his country, Latin and South America, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Spain.

Where Latin people live, Juan Gabriel was part of their lives.

“Juan Gabriel is our Elvis,” declares Juanes, the Colombian star who recorded the hit “Querida” with the singer in 2015.

~~Juan Gabriel Dies at 66~~

Born Alberto Aguilera Valadez, the son of a farmer, in Parácuaro, Mexico, about 165 miles west of Mexico City, Gabriel is a courtly gentleman, the single father of four adult children. Yet he transforms onstage into a master of melodrama (his nickname is “The Divo From Juárez“) and is known to bring both men and women to tears during his two-and-a-half-hour concerts.

On Aug. 19, Gabriel launched another arena tour of the United States: the 21st century-themed MeXXIco Es Todos (Mexico Is All of Us), which will play nearly 30 cities in a 360-degree stage ­format. The show will include 50 ­mariachi and ­orchestra players, 10 singers and 20 ­dancers.

This fall, Telemundo will ­premiere Hasta Que Te Conocí (Until I Met You), a TV series ­chronicling his rise that is named after his 1968 hit song.

Mourn

Juan Gabriel, a superstar Mexican songwriter and singer who was an icon in the Latin music world, died Sunday at his home in California at age 66, his publicist said.

Juan Gabriel was Mexico’s leading singer-songwriter and top-selling artist. His ballads about love and heartbreak and bouncy mariachi tunes became hymns throughout Latin America and Spain and with Spanish speakers in the United States.

He brought many adoring fans to tears as they sang along when he crooned his songs about love and heartbreak, including his top hits, “Hasta Que Te Conoci” (“Until I Met You”) and “Amor Eterno” (“Eternal Love”). His hit “Querida” (“Dear”) topped Mexico’s charts for a whole year.

A flamboyant performer, Juan Gabriel, whose real name was Alberto Aguilera Valadez, liked to wear jackets covered in sequins or dress in shiny silk outfits in hot pink, turquoise blue or canary yellow, and he was known for tossing his head before dancing or jumping around the stage.

“He has passed on to become part of eternity and has left us his legacy through Juan Gabriel, the character created by him for all the music that has been sung and performed all around the world,” his press office said in a statement.

Mourn

~~April 1, 2015~~ 

The loss of a Mother, even though expected because of age and medical conditions, is very hard to accept.

Many times you tell yourself that you are ready, that this is the circle of life, that it will be alright. Yet, it’s very difficult to bear when it does happen.

My heart goes out to my dearest friend Jean.

Today will be a hard day.

I need to be there …… for her. 

JeanMom

She will always be with you …. in your DNA, your heart, your mind and your memories. She will never be far away from you.

Heaven has another angel … this one will watch over you!!
