Following Alejandro "Jano" Fuentes' death, Lucero and other artists took to social media to mourn the loss of the La Voz México 2011 alum who was fatally shot in Chicago. 

"Thank you for the moments and memories we shared my dear Jano. You will be missed," tweeted the Mexican singer who was his coach on the Mexican version of The Voice

Singer and actress Litzy took to Instagram to post a heartfelt message about Jano. "YOU, my friend Jano Fuentes, were an incomparable person with a unique and special talent. My heart is broken! Sending you a big hug to wherever you are. I will never forget your spectacular voice and most of all how incredible you were always with me. I had the honor to share the stage with you in "Regina" and it was amazing to also be able to share some laughs with you ... I will always take you with me in my heart and prayers." 

Actress Vanessa Bauche said Jano was yet "another victim of the gun violence in the U.S." and asked her followers to help out with a donation to cover the cost of his funeral services. 

Jano, whose attack happened just a week after the killing of The Voice alum Christina Grimmie, was shot several times in the head in an ambush outside his Tras Bambalinas School while celebrating his birthday with friends. The 45-year-old singer was confirmed dead by the Cook County Medical Examiner.
