Stars Share Condolences Amid Passing Of Beloved Singer Vicente Fernández – CBS Los Angeles

HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) — Condolences were pouring amid the passing of Vicente Fernández on Sunday.

Estoy con el corazón roto. Don Chente conmigo fue un ángel toda la vida. El me quiso mucho y yo a él. Siempre que iba a Guadalajara venía a mis conciertos y lo único que me consuela el alma, en este momento, es que cada vez que nos veíamos le decía lo importante que era para mi.

Dozens of fans gathered in Hollywood to remember the iconic and beloved singer of regional Mexican music who was awarded three Grammys and nine Latin Grammys and inspired a new generation of performers, including his son Alejandro Fernández, who died on Sunday. He was 81 years old.
Fernández was known for hits such as “El Rey,” and “Lástima que seas ajena,” his command of the ranchera genre and his dark and elegant mariachi suits with their matching wide-brimmed sombreros.
His music attracted fans far beyond Mexico’s borders. Songs like “Volver, Volver” and “Como Mexico no hay dos” were extremely popular among Mexican immigrant communities in the U.S. because of how they expressed their longing for the homeland.
“It was an honor and a great pride to share with everyone a great musical career and give everything for the audience,” Fernández’s family said on his official Instagram account. “Thank you for continuing to applaud, thank you for continuing to sing.”
