José 'Cheo' Feliciano Dies In A Car Accident

Source: Huffington Post

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rican salsa legend Cheo Feliciano died in a car accident early Thursday, prompting the governor of the U.S. territory to declare three days of mourning.

Feliciano, a member of the Fania All Stars, was one of the most recognized salsa singers, with hits including "Una en un millón," ''Mi promesa," and "Contigo aprendi."

The 78-year-old Feliciano was alone in his Jaguar when he hit a light post before dawn in the northern suburb of Cupey. Police officer Jorge Hernandez Pena, who is overseeing investigation of the crash, said in a phone interview that Feliciano was not wearing his seatbelt.

He said it is unclear what led to the crash, adding that officials did not find any drugs or alcohol in the car.

2. Just for clarification--NOT the guitarist/vocalist Jose Feliciano who is blind--of "Feliz Navidad"

fame. Apparently I was not the only one confused:
Singer and guitarist Jose Feliciano also was among the dozens of musicians lamenting his death. His New York publicist, Judy Katz, noted that some media were incorrectly reporting that the guitarist had died.


RIP

8. Any time. That's how we differentiate them back home. By always referring to one as Jose and the other

Cheo. Common mistake. He was one of my favorites.
