Best Singer Ever!

     For those of you who know me well, you probably already know who my favorite singer is. For those of you who don't,well, you will find out. And no, he's not Justin Bieber or any of the guys from One Direction. He is actually from Guatemala and he is 49 years old. Yes, I know, he is very old. He could be our dad, but that's not the point. The point is that he is AMAZING and very successful. He has more than 10 albums and over 150 songs. The lyrics of all his songs are inspiring and among them is always the perfect one to dedicate to someone or to listen to just to cheer yourself up.
     In 2012, he started his "Metamorfosis World Tour" right after the huge success of his last album, "Independiente," in 2011. During this tour he went to so many countries all around America including Guatemala, the U.S, Chile, Argentina, and many others. And every single concert was sold out. He recently finished his tour in the Dominican Republic which means it lasted over a year and a half.
     Below, there is a video of one of his most famous songs and the one with which he usually ends every concert. You could also check out his site:
Oh and something else, he is from here so he sings in Spanish. Just in case you were expecting a song in English.

  1. I seen the video, I heard the sing sing, and i love it! His talent s so amazing. I understand that you sing as well even when your old. This guy inspire men that you can sing too even when their kids told them that you can. So my conclusion is that you can sing even you are old.

    1. I definitely agree with you. People can sing even if they're old. Age has nothing to do with talent and it is amazing how he is so successful at this age. He is someone to be admired. I think that he is a great example of perseverance because it was really hard for him to get to the point where he is now.
      And one random question, who are you? Just GM doesn't really help to know who you are.

  2. Ricardo Arjona is one of my favorite singers too! I like that he doesn't just sing about superficial things, but he sings about deep stuff. He analyzes human nature and makes a great song about it. It's really cool that you can sing like that when you are 49 years old and being on tour at that age! wow!

  3. Wow, this song is pretty good! I don't know why, but I'm a little apathetic to spanish songs. However, I like this song. Actually when I just read the name Ricardo Arjona on the video screen, I thought "Hmm, Gaby wrote this." It is interesting that he had spent more than 1 year doing the "Metamorfosis World Tour". I heard he came Guatemala once, was it this year? Now I would like to hear his some other songs. I like his husky voice. :)

  4. Oh Gaby when I read this I knew it was from you!You love Ricahrdo arjona and he is pretty good ! His lyrics remind me of poetry is that weird? jajajajjajaWell all artist are poets in some way or another jajajajajjaja great choice of song !

  5. I really don't get why people think that older people cant be singers, just because they weren't discovered right after highs school that dosen't mean people can be good! This guy is proof that no matter how old you are you can sing. Its probably better he's older because that way he's less likely to end up in trouble. The song is really good! Im not a big fan of spanish songs just because I like knowing what people are saying but even in spanish the song is really good!
