Pepe Sings the Hits
Pepe began his performance with the song 100% Mexicano, which made the audience get up from their seats to cheer the singer. “My father’s career has been a great source of inspiration for me” says Pepe. “Antonio Aguilar risked everything to dignify Mexican music in other countries that were not his”. Pepe Aguilar a Charreria national champion and 5-time state champion, dazzled the audience with his mastery of the horse. He sang hits such as “Recuérdame Bonito” and “Directo Al Corazón” and a medley of “La Chancla”, “El Chivo” and “Fño de Tierra” with his daughter Ángela Aguilar and son Leonardo Aguilar. Angela’s presentation was in both Spanish and English which showed the union of both cultures, as she proclaimed: “I am proud to be Mexican-American.”
“I am tremendously proud and grateful for the life that allows me to re-ignite a story that began many decades ago. A story of a humble Zacatecano without academic education but with heart and the education of life reaching out to the most hidden corners of the continent, taking a flag and its traditions, its music, its culture and its charro costume” commented Pepe during the concert.
