The voice of Alexander Fernandez was once again heard to the farthest reaches of the stage filling the seats at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the United States. Let’s find out who Alejandro Fernandez is, shall we?
Who is Alejandro Fernandez if anyone knows?
Mexican singer Alejandro Fernández Abarca performs.
El Potrillo is the nickname given to him by the media and his fans for being one of the most well-known Hispanic artists. Over 20 million copies of his albums have been sold worldwide.
His father is a famous Mexican singer named Vicente Fernández. Early in his career he focused on traditional, earthy styles of Mexican folk music such as mariachi and charro. He later managed to expand into pop music.
Over the course of his career, he has been honored with not one, but two Latin Grammy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Alejandro Fernanadez vs. Saul Canelo
Mexican musician Alejandro Fernández will support boxer Saul Canelo lvarez on Saturday night in Las Vegas. They will likely show up together as they approach the ring if they do so.
Sources indicate that Fernandez Alvarez may be helping on Saturday as the latter faces Gennady Golovkin at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada for his second win over Golovkin.
Since Sa’l knows Alejandro Fernandez’s father, Vicente, and Canelo has a long-standing relationship with the foal, both relationships go back many years. The two often shared Vicente’s possessions among themselves and gave each other generous gifts.
On the other hand, singer Carolina Ross will perform the Mexican national anthem during the incredible fight that will decide who wins the WBC, IBF, WBA and WBO titles for the 160-pound division. This fight takes place before the Main Event.
Is Saul standing in front of him now?
Saul Alvarez reminded Gennady Golovkin that Floyd Mayweather Jr. had been the most difficult opponent he had faced during his career, although they had already fought each other twice. Golovkin was one of the two boxers who defeated him. This time Alvarez lured the Kazakh boxer by putting his finger on the sensitive spot and doing it on purpose.
Still, Canelo Lvarez acknowledged the Kazakh’s strength and the fact that he and the Kazakh had their greatest rivalry. In fact, the Kazakh will be the first opponent Canelo Lvarez will face for the third time after they managed to draw in their first fight and won in their second fight in a disputed fight.
What did he have to say in his interview with CNN?
During an interview conducted in Spanish for CNN, he made the following statement: “The rivalry (GGG) is the most important of my career; the most challenging rival, no, was.” Although Floyd Mayweather is a more difficult opponent and I think he was without a doubt the most difficult one, Gennady Golovkin is one of the strongest that ever touched me in my career, yes.
The first years
Alejandro Fernández was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. In 1976 he made his debut in the great performance, which happened to be one of his father’s performances at the time.
Under the Sony Music label, Fernández released his debut studio album entitled Alejandro Fernández. The songs “Necesito olvidarla”, “Brumas” and “Equivocadamente” were the most successful singles. Alejandro embarked on a tour of Mexico and other locations in the United States, bringing this content with him. In 1993 he gave a concert with his father at the Palacio de los Deportes. He then continued his career for a season in Mexico City at the Teatro Blanquita. That same year, Alejandro and Pedro Ramrez collaborated to develop and distribute the critically acclaimed album Piel de Nia. Some of the album’s most successful singles are “Piel de Nia”, “A La Vera del Camino” and “Cascos Ligeros”. In 1993, Fernández was nominated for the Lo Nuestro Awards in the Male Artist, New Artist, and Regional Mexican Album of the Year categories for his debut album. However, he did not win any of these categories.
In 1994 his album Grandes Éxitos a la Manera de Alejandro Fernández was released, which included interpretations of works by famous composers such as Armando Manzanero, Luis Demetrio and Agustn Lara. Fernández was recognized as a potential winner in the Regional Mexican Male Performer of the Year category at the 9th Annual Lo Nuestro Awards.
Composer Alejandro Fernández comes from an illustrious line of mariachi musicians and composers.
Although born in Mexico City, Fernández spent his childhood in Guadalajara. He originally wanted to be an architect, but in 1991, with his father’s encouragement, decided to pursue a singing career. He is the youngest son in his family and the only son. He is the youngest of three children; his older brothers are Vicente Jr. and Gerardo, and he has a sister named Alejandra. “Los trois potrillos” is a nickname he and his brothers earned in Mexico (The Three Stallions).
In the late 1990s, Fernández’s older brother Vicente Jr. was taken hostage by a group of people involved in organized crime. As a form of retaliation, his captors severed one of his fingers and gave it to his family as a warning. Vicente Fernández reportedly paid a substantial sum of money to secure Vicente Fernández Jr.’s release. The exact amount was never disclosed to the public.
The mall in Guadalajara known as “Unicenter” is co-owned by Fernández. It houses a number of different facilities and provides almost 170 jobs.
It was a joint effort between him and his family that led to the creation of the Arena VFG with a capacity of 11,000 people. Most of the events that take place here are charreria competitions and music concerts. Fernández is a master when it comes to charreria and riding horses. He is a big fan of the Mexican soccer team Atlas and has a close relationship with legendary soccer player Rafael Márquez.
Fernández is a father of five children; Three of them were born to him and his ex-wife América Guinart (Alejandro, Jr. and their twin daughters América and Camila), while the other two were born to him with Colombian model Ximena Dáz (Emiliano and Valentina). Around the mid-2000s, he claimed he underwent a vasectomy.
Fernández began his music career in much the same way as his father, mainly focusing on performing ranchera songs. He has made a name for himself in the pop music genre since the release of his album Me Estoy Enamorando in 1997. When he performs live, he starts the concert with his ranchera repertoire and then changes into his pop singer clothes to sing pop songs.
Fernández has a baritone tessitura. Because of his impressive vocal range and adaptability, he is able to play a variety of musical genres simultaneously, including romantic ballads, pop music, and ranchera music. He has collaborated with renowned musicians such as Plácido Domingo, Marc Anthony, José Carreras, Chayanne, Amaia Montero, Joan Sebastian, Gloria Estefan, Mal, Ha*Ash, Julio Iglesias, Patricia Kaas, Miguel Bosé, Mario Frangoulis, Ednita Nazario, Yuri , Franco De Vita, Diego El Cigala, Nelly Furtado, Christina Aguilera.
2011-present: “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti”, Confidencias, Rompiendo Fronteras
In 2011 he embarked on the Dos Mundos: Revolucion Tour, which lasted from June to August. The song “Bajo un mismo sol”, written by Alejandro and released on August 1, 2011, was chosen as the official theme song for the 2011 Pan American Games. Dos Mundos, un Concierto was the name of the concert series he took part in with fellow artist Marc Anthony (Two Worlds, one Concert) across Latin America. Alejandro and Christina Aguilera collaborated to create a cover version of the song “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti” which was later used as the theme music for the soap opera “La tempestad”. With 65,000 sales from digital downloads, the song went platinum in Mexico after being available there for just 17 days. Confidencias, his album, was released on August 27, 2013 under his own name. Duets with Rod Stewart and Vicente Fernández are also included on this album, in addition to the duet recorded with Christina Aguilera. His song “Te Amare” was chosen to serve as the theme music for the 2014 soap drama Hasta el end del world, replacing Pedro Fernández’s previous work in that capacity. In 2015, Alejandro collaborated with Alejandro Sanz on an interpretation of the song “A que no me dejas”, which was later used as the theme song for the soap series A que no me dejas. Alejandro’s version of the song was released in 2015. The Billboard Latin Music Hall of Fame recognized Fernández’s achievements and inducted him that same year (2016). The album Rompiendo Fronteras was released by him in February 2017, and the single “Sé que te duele” became a hit immediately after its release.
Sony Music controversy
Alejandro Fernández filed a lawsuit against global record label Sony Music after the label attempted to release an album featuring some of his previously unreleased tracks after the terms of his contract with the label expired. Just over 6,000 copies of the album were taken by federal police when they arrived at Sony’s offices in Mexico City. The song “Diferente” was made available for download on the internet as the first single from the album.
