It appears Julieta Venegas will be joining the growing list of artists hitting the recording studio with legendary Mexican singer Juan Gabriel…
The 41-year-old Mexican singer/songwriter, who was born in Long Beach, California, will record a special duet with el Divo de Juárez to celebrate Gabriel’s 40-year history in the music industry.
“We’ve communicated a couple of time and I’m looking t see when I can go see him, or else, when he can come to Mexico City. But he is recording with a ton of invited [artists] and it looks like it’s going to be awesome,” Venegas told El Universal.
“I feel incredible. They’re songs for all time and Juan Gabriel is part of my emotional life, like he is for so many people,” added Venegas. “So I am excited to be part of something like this.”
The “Limon y Sal” says Gabriel’s music has been a huge part of her life since she was a young girl.
“Ages ago, I covered ‘Siempre en mi mente,’” recalls the Grammy-winning singer. “But ‘Amor eterno’, the disc he made with Rocío Dúrcal left a big impression on me and it’s still a disc I refer to.”
