I am truly obsessed with Hector Lavoe's music after watching the movie "El Cantante". You never know the true story and feelings behind the songs till you know what's behind the story.

Growing up in a bad neighborhood and having to grow up as a child is hard but there was always salsa for me i have listened to Hector Lavoe's music constantly and consistantly and it has always kept me going if there was something bad going on i would listen to dia de suerte and the words and the beat would pick me up and keep me going the music that he made has inspired many puerto ricans like myself and others who understands the meanings of his music

Salsa music is something that i did not grow up listening to. As I've gotten older my taste in music is broadening and I must say that Hector Lavoe sang from his soul. I am so happy to have found him and be able to add his music to the soundtrack of my life. Always remembered.. Christina A.

I was looking on line at pics of his tomb in puerto rico. I was amazed at how modest his tomb is. He was and is such a great singer. I was wondering why don't all of his fans figure out if there is a way to donate money and have them create a statute at his tomb stone in his honor. At least we can pay a tribute to him and his music that he left us. Just a thougth.

I saw 'El Cantante' for the first time a couple weeks ago. I'm so glad I watched the end credits, because I had never heard 'Periodico De Ayer' and now I'm obsessed with the song! I watch the end credits over and over just to hear it. I went to YouTube and I love the 1978 performance-the video isn't all that, but Hector Lavoe's voice and the piano and the bass are AWESOME, I'm listening to it as I'm typing this now-Hector Lavoe's voice was(and is) so beautiful, God truly blessed him- he truly had 'la voz.'

He could have sung the alphabet and it would have gone gold! I can't answer who is the better singer, because Hector Lavoe and Marc Anthony are like apples and oranges-they both go great in salad!
