Mexican Icon Vicente Fernández Dies at 81 — Ricky Martin, Maluma & More React
Four months after a serious fall left him on a ventilator, Mexican musical legend Vicente Fernández, 81, has died. His death was announced Sunday by his official Instagram.
Current star Maluma posted a throwback selfie with his idol, writing, "He'll continue being 'THE KING.' Sending a hug filled with strength to his family whom I love."
Ricky Martin called the singer "an angel to me his entire life. He loved me and I loved him. Whenever I went to Guadalajara, he'd come to my concerts and go. The only thing that makes my soul feel better in this moment is that every time that we saw each other, I told him how important he was to me. All my love and strength to his family and everyone suffering this great loss."
