Interesting story about Jose José...Jose José hands down one of the most amazing voices in all of Mexico.
On March 25, 1970, Jose José competed in a Latin Music Festival representing his home country of Mexico. Other performers sang known cover songs, however, Jose José took a risk and chose to sing an unknown song that he performed live for the very first time in front of this live audience called "El Triste".
His performance was flawless and it is said that the audience insisted the contest be over and give him first place. In the end, even with the impact that his performance caused, he got third place.
This performance, however, gave Jose José international fame and this song was quickly recorded and became his number one hit single.
This is the actual performance. Gives me chills.
