David’s performing on Tuesday at the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts‘ 15th annual Noche de Gala event. Sooooo, I thought it might be nice to take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of his non-holiday Spanish canciónes (um, I had to Google translate that) …
…and somehow missed this interview from ALMA Awards:
P.S. Do you guys think he’ll sing one of these gems or a brand new song?
Oh my goodness…David singing Spanish…pure HEAVEN! I particularly remember his Contigo performance ~ combination of not being able to catch my breath along with nearly falling off my couch! lol ~Whatever he sings will have that same effect on me ~no doubt! ♥
Spanish suits his voice like a glove….even if I can’t understand the lyrics… it almost makes the actual sound of his voice more clear somehow.
A new song is always good IMO. He must have quite a few Spanish songs he has learned from his Mom over the years!! What ever he sings, let’s hope the ninja’s are there! 🙂
So bad fan here, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that first video before. Weird haha.
A new song is always nice, but I’d take anything, LOVE him voice in Spanish! And if he felt the need to whip out dance moves, I’d be okay with that 😛
Then you probs missed this one too! 🙂 Salsa/bachata/chachacha FTW!!!
k, this isn’t in Spanish but still 😆 … acappella EAM posted on SonyMusicPh’s FB page … ay carumba!
I love the Spanish songs David sings! He does a tremendous job! I hope we have the opportunity to hear/see a vid of his performance tomorrow! I know he will do an awesome job! Thanks for all the great links! 😀
I love David’s Spanish vocals. Always melts my little ol’ grew-up-in-San Antonio,Texas heart. I was there in San Antonio when he sang that little snippet of Como La Flor. Asking his Mom, who had just joined him on tour, “what should I sing?” She said Selena. Very wise woman. The audience went crazy for it and him.
I’m still kicking myself for not making that short one hour drive down to San Antonio for the Tejano Music Awards. Two wonderful songs in Spanish would have been worth the drive for sure. “No Me Queda Mas” and the “Como La Flor” duet with Pete Astudillo (from Selena’s band) as a tribute to the memory of Selena were wonderful.
Oh, I hope someone takes videos tomorrow. Please, Please, Please!!!!
Love David singing Spanish songs.
Love anything that David sings in Spanish! Whatever he sings, it will be wonderful, really hope we get to see it. Love watching all those videos again.
Very nice A Capella EAM by David for his Thai fans. Always amazes me how he can just open his mouth wherever he is and out comes the most beautiful sound. Hope we get a video of that beautiful sound when he sings in Spanish at the Noche de Gala event.
Here’s a very sweet tweet site (thanks to @betsyjane25!):
From “Tia” Martha (Mayorga, Lupe’s sis) in the FanScene comments:
“JUST TALKED TO LUPE, SHE MET JIMMY [Smits],AT THE AIRPORT, HE SAY HELLO TO HER AND RECOGNIZE HER!!.. AND SHE FORGOT A CAMARA , I TOLD HER SOME OF DAVID’S FANS WILL GO TO THIS EVENT, AND SHE IS ASKING IF YOU FANS CAN TAKE SOME PICTURES OF HER AND DAVID!!… SHE MIGHT DO A LITTLE SINGING’… THANKS IF YOU DO!!”
Guess that’s why Lupe hopes fans will take pics, ‘cuz she forgot her camera! 😆
