Rumors surfaced this past weekend about the untimely death of Luis Miguel. But as it turns out, Luismi lived to see his 40th birthday on Monday!
It all started when the Mexican singer was hospitalized at Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles last week and was said to be in critical condition. His reps stayed mum about the matter and the words “Luis Miguel Dead?” started appearing all over the web as fans began mourning the star. Apparently, the romantic crooner obtained a bacterial infection in his lungs while undergoing liposuction surgery, and is now recuperating at home.
But the whole incident got me thinking that we need a little Luis Miguel in our lives. I don’t think there was a milestone in my teens that didn’t come with a Luismi song as soundtrack. Perhaps my train of thought was fueled by one too many glasses of Unico Luis Miguel Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon; but seriously, songs like “Inolvidable” and “Si Nos Dejan” are still classics—at least in my repertoire. Tell us: Do you have a favorite Luis Miguel song?
