La Musica vicente Fernandez

Childhood:Born on February 17, 1940, in Huentitan el Alto, Jalisco, Mexico, Vicente ''Chente'' Fernandez spent the early years of his life on his father Ramon’s ranch on the outskirts of Guadalajara. Here the idyllic ranchera lifestyle was instilled in him. His mother often took him to see the films of Pedro Infante, the king of Mexican bolero. Fernandez told Leila Cobo of Billboard the significance of these films: “When I was 6 or 7, 1 would go see Pedro Infante’s movies, and I would tell my mother, ‘When I grow up, I’ll be like them.’” By age eight he had taken up the guitar and was practicing his singing in the style of the ranchera singers he heard on the radio.
By age eight he had taken up the guitar and was practicing his singing in the style of the ranchera singers he heard on the radio. In 1954 Fernandez won an amateur contest sponsored by a Guadalajara television station. It was his first break into performing and he began to play at local at clubs and gatherings. Around this time, however, Fernandez’s father lost the ranch and the family moved into the city of Tijuana. Fernandez, who had dropped out of school in the fifth grade, began working odd jobs in the city such as janitor, dishwasher, waiter-whatever he could find. All the while, he still held to his musical aspirations.
Vicente Fernandez music style was mostly ranchera, ballad, and bolero.
