Thank you for blessing this world with your voice. You are my favorite Salsero, I grew up to your songs and have many great memories from your music. Your voice had so much soul, and I could feel whatever you sang, because you sang from the heart. I hope you are happy knowing that your music lives on forever, and people still appreciate, and love you til this day Hector.

!!! Happy Birthday Hector !!! We will never forget you! Thank you for all of the wonderful music you gave us, sung with all of the love + passion from your beautiful musical heart and deep rhythmic soul. Thank you for making this world a much better place while you were here. Although it will remain a better place because of the gift God gave us with your very special, irreplaceable, shining presence - it will never be the same in your absence. God bless you our dear friend! Love, Dina

Pandora's artist description of Hector Lavoe says that he was "born to sing." That seems to be the case exactly. My goodness. His voice was one of the best of all the singers I've ever heard and it was certainly the best voice in Salsa music I've heard. Nadie compara. It's quite a shame that his life ended so quickly.

Hector you sir are simply the best. I'm born and raised in NYC and my father always played your music. He still does and I still do. My parents are both from Guajataca and you helped them have some of Puerto Rico here in this great city. You'd be amazed at how often your music is constantly played. I wish you eternal peace wherever you may be. Que viva Puerto Rico!!

I am sad to be hearing about such a talented spirit so late in life, but none the less I am glad I have. I pray that your spirit is finally at peace. Vaya con dios maestro.

If Hector Lavoe would of known how his music still lives today as it did yesterday, he would of be smiling upon all of us who truly appreciated him as an artist, as a Puerto Rican, as a talented musician who sadly had a broken heart and allowed drugs to consumed him. Both of my parents were consumed by drugs, sadly they are both dead. However, I am a success because of them and not because of what they did or didn't do. Hector, your relevance is as important today as it was ayer... Your legacy will continue to live.... Read more
