Chayanne Returns To The Music Scene With Intensive Activity For Haitian And Chilean Victims
By Dialogo March 08, 2010Puerto Rican singer and dancer “Chayanne” is returning to the music scene, following a three-year absence, with intensive activity to support the victims of the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, the artist announced in Mexico City, where he lived through the earthquake of 1985. As a demonstration of his understanding of earthquake victims, the Boricuan artist recalled in a press conference that he experienced the earthquake that struck Mexico City in 1985 and left ten thousand dead, according to official figures. “We lived through the 1985 earthquake together; it was terribly sad,” said Chayanne, who this week reached first place on Billboard’s Latin Albums chart with his recent disc No hay imposibles [There are no impossible things], which he is promoting in Mexico. The singer declared himself satisfied with the “very beautiful” Spanish version of “We Are the World,” recorded by various Spanish-speaking artists to benefit the Haitian victims. With regard to Chile, he indicated, looking forward, that “there will be many shows to help the communities” affected by the recent earthquake. On the morning of 19 September 1985, Chayanne was at Mexico City’s international airport, on board his plane and about to take off, when the 8.1-magnitude earthquake began that leveled a large part of the Mexican capital’s heart.
