Antonio Sanchez, a Grammy-nominated Mexican-American drummer and composer, is making the rounds on social media after posting a heartfelt tribute to his grandfather and iconic actor Igancio Lopez Tarso.

“Happy 95 years of life to this incredible human being and artist who continues to impress and inspire us constantly,” said Sanchez, best known for composing an original film score for the Oscar-winning Birdman directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu. “I feel incredibly privileged to be your grandson. I love you so much, Grandpa.” 

The sweet photo of the two men posted on Facebook went viral on Wednesday (Jan. 15), with fans expressing their best birthday wishes. 

Ignacio is an award-winning actor from the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, who has acted in nearly 50 films, including Rosa Blanca, for which he won best actor at the 1973 Ariel Awards.
