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 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.

Cantú was born in Houston, Texas. The family returned to Guadalajara (Mexico) when she was a child. At the age of 16, Cantú was drawn to entertaining people; she started taking bass and guitar lessons, eventually leaving law school to pursue her musical career.

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.

“YO TE RECUERDO”

Juan Gabriel & Marc Anthony

On hump day, after a couple of margaritas at a local joint, this is what I want to listen to.

Brings all my heritage and my “insides’ to the forefront.

There’s the Latin in me.

It will never leave me.

That’s who I am, that’s what I’m proud to be, that’s within me.

The Latin blood runs through my veins.

And proud o f it … to no end!

Watch Artists Hug It Out In New Music Video

Juan Gabriel presents his most recent music video “Yo Te Recuerdo” featuring Marc Anthony. The single, which was released on December 2015, now counts with a nearly 4-minute long video featuring both El Divo de Juarez and the Puerto Rican salsa singer. With Anthony jumping on board, the 2003 record from Juanga’s “Inocente de Ti” album has a fresh salsa twist, ready for some dancing!

The video was released Tuesday morning on the iconic Mexican singer’s YouTube channel. However, it is expected to make its exclusive debut Tuesday afternoon on Telemundo’s “Al Rojo Vivo,” with encore presentations on “Un Nuevo Día,” “Suelta la Sopa,” “Acceso Total,” “Titulares y Más” and NBC Universo.

 “Yo Te Recuerdo” is part of Gabriel’s recent studio album, “Los Dúo 2,” a production that features 16 tracks –ll of which are Juanga’s all-time classics!

After collaborating with artists such as Fifth Harmony, Juanes and Natalia Lafourcade in the first “Los Dúo” album released early 2015, the “Te Sigo Amando” singer unleashed a second part featuring brand new collabs.

Latin Music Series …. Raphael!!


~~June 1, 2014~~ 

In his own words …. he’s been singing for 53 years. 

Raphael visited Orlando, Florida, for the first time on May 30, 2014. I was among the many fans at the venue. I must say that this artist played a very important part in my life as a young adolescent growing up and learning about love, passion, life and reality.

When I arrived at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center I didn’t know what to expect. This artist is in his early 70s. I wondered if he was going to be able to woo me like he did so many times before. I wondered if his voice would be the same that I remembered and the same that I could listen to in the many CDs that I have.

I started listening to him a bit skeptical but to my wonderful surprise, Raphael was able to pull me into his music world and take me back to my younger years when everyone was pinning for lost love, for future love, for unrequited love ….

It was magical. It was a trip back in time. Down memory lane!

Raphael still has the ability to enthrall and enchant. His voice is as strong and lyrical as ever. I enjoyed his concert immensely. He still provokes the “chill factor”!

Below you will find a link to a concert in Madrid, Spain, where he performed basically the same concert that we enjoyed. 

Miguel Rafael Martos Sánchez (born May 5, 1943 in LinaresSpain), often simply referred to as Raphael, is a worldwide acclaimed Spanish singer and television, film and theater actor. A pioneer of modern Spanish music, he is considered a major influence in having opened the door and paving the way to the flood of Spanish singers that follow. His wide-range voice, added to his quality as showman, has entertained and engaged people worldwide for more than five decades.

~~Childhood~~

Raphael was born Miguel Rafael Martos Sánchez in Linares, province of Jaén (Spain), on May 5, 1943. As a consequence, he is nicknamed both “El Ruiseñor de Linares” (“Nightingale of Linares”) and “El Divo de Linares”(“The Divo from Linares”). His family moved to Madrid when he was nine months old, and he started singing when he was just three years-old. He joined a children’s choir at age four. When he was 9, he was recognized as the best child voice in Europe at a contest in Salzburg, Austria.

~~Professional career~~

Raphael began his professional career by signing with the Dutch record label Philips. To distinguish himself, he adopted the “ph” of the company’s name and christened himself ‘Raphael’. His first singles were “Te voy a contar mi vida” and “A pesar de todo”, among others. Raphael adopted his own peculiar singing style from the beginning; he is known for acting each one of his songs while on stage, emphasizing his gestures with high dramatic effect.

It is not unusual for Raphael to ad lib lyrics as to localize a song depending on the venue he’s singing at, wear Latin American peasant costumes and dance folk dances within a song, kicking and demolishing a mirror, or doing the moves of a flamenco dancer or a bullfighter onstage. He also possesses a wide vocal range, which he often used in the beginning of his career as to evoke a choirboy approach to some songs.

When he was nineteen, he won first, second and third awards at the famous Benidorm International Song Festival, Spain, 1962, with the songs: “Llevan”, “Inmensidad” and “Tu Conciencia”. After a brief relation with Barclay record label, who produced just an EP, he signed contract with Hispavox recording company, and began a long artistic relationship with the musical director of this label, the late, talented argentinian orchestrator Waldo de los Ríos and intensify the partnership with outstanding Spanish songwriter Manuel Alejandro.

In 1966 and 1967 he represented Spain at the XII and XIII Eurovision Song Contest in Luxembourg, singing “Yo soy aquél” and Vienna, “Hablemos del amor” and placing both 7th and 6th position, although he did not win. It was the first time that Spain obtained a high place in the competition,leaving the door open for victory the following year, which Spain achieved with “La, la, la“, another song of modern style too,which for political reasons still in Spain then was sung instead by Massiel.

This served as a turning point in Raphael’s career, making him an international star. He traveled and performed worldwide in Europe, Latin America, the United States, Russia and Japan. Songs such as “Yo soy aquel” (his signature song), “Cuando tú no estás”, “Mi gran noche”, “Digan lo que digan”, “Tema de amor”, “Estuve enamorado” and “Desde aquel día” cemented his status as a major international singing star.

Raphael also began a lucrative film career, appearing in, Cuando tú no estás (Mario Camus, 1966), which was followed by Al ponerse el Sol (Mario Camus, 1967) Digan lo que digan (Mario Camus, 1968, filmed in Argentina), El golfo (1969, filmed in México), El ángel(1969), Sin Un Adiós (1970, partially filmed in England) and Volveré a nacer (1972).

~~Personal life~~

He married journalist and writer Natalia Figueroa, in Venice (Italy) on 14 July 1972. They have three children: Jacobo, Alejandra and Manuel.

Raphael’s health faced a major setback in 2003, when his liver started failing due to a latent bout with Hepatitis B; he recovered successfully after a transplant. Since then he is an active organ donation promoter.

~~Awards and accomplishments~~

Raphael can be singled out as one of the most important singers in the Spanish language for the second half of the 20th century, along with Joan Manuel SerratCamilo SestoJuan GabrielJulio IglesiasRocío DúrcalRocío Jurado and José José.
