- Story Text: The remains of famed Mexican singer Jose Jose were driven through major arteries of Mexico City on Wednesday (October 09) on their way to the capital's preeminent cultural center, the Palace of Fine Arts, where a service for the popular crooner was held.
Jose Jose, whose powerful, romantic ballads captivated Latin America for more than half a century, died on September 28.
Jose Jose received several Grammy nominations, sold more than 250 million albums and was once courted by music legend Frank Sinatra, who wanted to win him for his own label.
He is often considered Mexico's most successful singer and was also an occasional actor.
