Pepe Aguilar’s tribute to his late mother has reached millions…
The 52-year-old Mexican-American singer-songwriter and actor’s tribute to Flor Silvestre leads Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart for November 2020.
The chart, the latest of which recaps the activity in November, is a monthly look at the widest reaching and most-reacted-to videos posted by musicians on Facebook Live, as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee.
