Yesterday the Latin American music world lost an icon, a leyend.
Juan Gabriel wrote, composed and arranged music that my generation enjoyed, and two generations before me did too. His songs appealed to everyone, he had a way of laying every day stories with finess. A way of writing raw emotions that felt nostalgic, but empowering.
I read a title that referred to him as the Latin American Elvis. He was more than our Elvis. He was our Prince, our Michael Jackson, our James Brown.
This are a few songs that every Latin American will recognize, sing and today, hum in mourning for this extraordinary man that thankfully left us this amazing legacy.
Have a good day today. Remember a great song too.
