The 2019 Latin Grammy Awards took place Thursday night (Nov. 14), and one of the highly awaited moments of the night was when three generations of the Fernandez family shared the stage together for the first time.
“It’s a family legacy,” Ricky Martin said as he and his co-hosts Roselyn Sanchez and Paz Vega introduced the performance.
“I’m a grateful man for my family and my music,” Vicente Fernandez’s voice was heard in the background as they kicked off the performance. His grandson, Alex Fernandez Jr., who was joined by Mariachi Sol de Mexico, walked onto the stage singing his single “Te Amare.”
“When you listen to the voice of who has your blood, you feel immortal,” Chente said in the background as his son Alejandro Fernandez took the stage to perform his latest single “Caballero.”
Throughout the entire performance, memorable family photos were seen in the background.
“Music is like my family and it will beat in my heart forever,” Chente’s voice said as the retired 79-year-old Regional Mexican singer got onstage to perform his classic “Alma Rota.”
Don Vicente was then joined onstage by his son and grandson to perform “Volver Volver.” The Fernandezes wore matching traditional charro outfits.
In front of a standing ovation and a crowd asking for an encore, Chente said: “I still needed to sing 50 more songs but I owe it to you. All I want to say to God and my public is that you know you are a part of me until the day they bury me. Thank you.”
