Vicente, Alejandro And Alex Fernandez Steal the Latin GRAMMYs With Three-Generational Performance
Vicente Fernandez, his superstar son Alejandro Fernandez and his son Alex Fernandez had all of the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas in awe and on their feet with their style of Mexican rancheras during their performance at Latin GRAMMYs on Nov. 14.
The Fernandez' performed live on stage for the first time ever, each showcasing their deep, emotive vocals with mariachi in a medley featuring songs, "Te Amare" that Alex kicked off and Caballero" sung by Alejandro from his latest album of the same name. They ended the performance with Vicente's "Volver Volver," which ignited the audience and had them asking for more.
The almost 80-year-old singer Vicente was recognized with an award called Premio de la Presidencia after the performance.
"[Thanks] to my fans, which I feel are like family," he said during his acceptance speech. "All of South and Central American and the U.S., who know will stay [in my heart] until the day I die."
Alex and Vicente Fernandez were nominated for Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album. The winner of the category, Christian Nodal, paid tribute to Vicente during his acceptance speech.
