He wanted the wedding ceremony to take place in secret, and he succeeded, even for the knowledge of the vast majority of the guests.
The singer Víctor Manuelle reviews with a wide smile how he decided to take advantage of the 75th birthday of his mother, Jenny, as a reason to gather the group of guests to the bridal event that took place in January, and which had a limited number of relatives taking into account account for the restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We did it in a secret way. Many of the family and close people did not know it, “he was pleased to reveal to Primera Hora in a meeting by video call to talk about the premiere tomorrow Thursday of the music video of Victims both, song that plays a duet with the singer India.
“I was able to take everyone by the hair and tell them that they were going to my mother’s birthday, that as a reason please wear black, elegant, because I wanted to surprise her because it was her 75, that we also celebrated there.”
On the opportunity to spread the news, he shared how much he longed to be the one to reveal to his followers the scoop on his link with Frances Franco.
“He always said ‘I want to say it, don’t let anyone slip in, don’t say,’ Look, we found out ‘, no, I’m going to say it’, and we were able to do it,” the artist laughed, who confessed that the decision to marry was last minute.
“We have been living together for 13 years, under a routine of spectacular work, airplanes, rehearsals, presentations. She in her professional part (public relations) up and down. At the moment, they lock us up (because of the pandemic). We are every day together looking at each other’s faces, and I said to him ‘if we have endured this, we are ready really, ‘”he stressed. “You get up every day with the person without doing anything, without working. I say that it helped us a lot ”.
The interpreter, in turn, reflected on what has contributed to strengthening his sentimental ties over time.
“You are realizing it along the way,” he analyzed thoughtfully. “That person catches your attention. You fall in love with a personality and what we realize is that perhaps things, the shocks that we may have due to differences, one knows that one can live with them through the years ”, he observes.
“What we fight for is the same thing that any couple fights for. I am disorganized. She is obsessive compulsive. What if the mess, what if the stockings, if you threw them away…, things that you say ‘we already know how to handle that’ “, he listed, adding that maturity is another aspect that has been key to their relationship.
“That passion at the beginning, which is passion, that you say is ending, in my case it is going to be replaced and you are placing importance on the things of greater weight. We already have many dreams and many goals that we accomplish together ”.
On the other hand, the pandemic has also allowed the salsa singer more time to enjoy his role as the grandfather of Dylara Valentina, who was born in December. However, he confesses to feeling some unease when his artistic career resumes the busy schedule from before.
“The girl (her daughter Yanishka) spent the pregnancy here in the house. He is born and has his room here in the house. It’s not the same as I’m waiting for the baby to be brought to me and I’m going to see her, but I open the door, and I get in and take her to my room. She sleeps with me for a little while, naps, and I get into the baby’s bed when she is with her and I get in the middle, that’s the positive part that the pandemic gave me, enjoying the stage of first-time grandfather. These four months have been incredible ”, he thanked.
“But on the other hand, I’m super scared when everything opens up and returns to normal because I’ve gotten used to being there,” confessed the artist, who is all smiles when he describes the little girl’s personality.
“It is a spark. It is all energy. Since she is a baby, you cannot carry her without putting your hand on her back, she will throw you back. She is very active, at miles, much ahead of her months because the pediatrician says so every time he sees her ”.
You will get what you deserve
The salsa singer showed great enthusiasm about the release tomorrow at 6:00 pm of the music video for the single Victims both, a theme that premiered in February, and whose lyrics raises the claim of a woman who discovers that her partner has a double life in love, and that neither knew of the existence of the other. The clip will premiere on Víctor Manuelle’s channel on YouTube, with a prelude at 5:30 pm in which the singer will share anecdotes and other details about the recording experience.
“It’s a movie in every way,” he said of the content of the visual, which was shot in Miami, Florida. “The filmic part is spectacular, 25 dancers who are in a restaurant, who are not doing a choreography to dance salsa, but it is a theatrical piece where they are joining all this drama that is happening when India surprises me and confront ”.
Venezuelan actress Scarlet Ortiz joins the production as a talent. “It is the person who plays the other victim. He gave an incredible characterization to the video “, highlighted the” Sonero de la Jóvenes “, and announced that it presents an interesting plot.
“He has tension. People I trust who have seen the video tell me ‘you know that I’m scared, involved in the confrontation in India, that it is very aggressive’, and at the end of the video I get what I deserve (laughs), which is the every woman’s wish, that ‘I would like to catch it red-handed’, and they are pleased because the two of them literally put me in my place ”.
Although the interpreters have known each other for years, this is the first time they have sung an official song as a duet.
“It was something I wanted to do for a long time, on his part too, because we had expressed it on many occasions,” he mentioned. “I had to do the theme with the interpretive force of India, in the way that it always treats the themes towards men, gentlemen, which are strong themes. I think this song fits the bill. Thank God we are occupying the first places ”, he affirmed about the song that he composed together with Juan José Hernández, and that it is a preview of the album that he plans to launch for the summer.
