Vicente Fernandes, a well-known and beloved singer of Mexican regional music, died on Sunday, winning three Grammy and nine Latin Grammy Awards and inspiring a new generation of performers, including his son Alexandro Fernandes. He was 81 years old, APA reports citing Nation World News.

Fernandes was known for his hits such as “El Rey” and “Lastima que seas ajena,” his familiarity with the ranchera genre, and his dark and elegant mariachi costumes.

His music has attracted fans outside of Mexico as well. Songs like “Volver, Volver” and “Como Mexico no hay dos” were very popular among Mexican immigrant communities in the U.S. because they expressed nostalgia for the homeland.

“It was an honor and a great honor to share a great musical career with everyone and give everything to the audience,” Fernandes ’family said on their official Instagram account. “Thank you for continuing to applaud, thank you for continuing to sing.”
