Jorge Negrete

The first nationally famous ranchera singer, Jorge Negrete appeared in three dozen films and recorded almost 200 songs during the 1930s, '40s, and early '50s, before dying at the height of his career. Born into a military family (his father earned the rank of lieutenant colonel in the Mexican Army during the revolution), Negrete initially followed in his father's footsteps, enrolling in Heroico Colegio Militar (his country's West Point) in 1925 and joining the army three years later.

In addition to the military, Negrete was also interested in music; he studied voice with José Pierson and became a talented opera singer (at one time, New York's Metropolitan Opera House offered him a secondary position). When hired by radio station XEW in 1930, however, he struggled to make the transition from opera to the more commercial ranchera style. After four years of development and growing acclaim, Negrete made a trip to New York to perform and was promptly hired by NBC. His career exploded during his brief stay in America; he collaborated with Xavier Cugat, earned bookings at Latin clubs, met his first wife (dancer Elisa Christy), and connected with cinematographer Ramón Peon, who cast Negrete in his first film, 1937's La Madrina del Diablo. Four years later, Ay Jalisco, No Te Rajes! assured his fame as "El Charro Cantor," the singing cowboy. He made 38 films in all and recorded several huge hits, including "Paloma Querida," "El Hijo del Pueblo," "Tequila con Limón," and the patriotic anthems "Mexico Lindo y Querido" and "Yo Soy Mexicano."

During the early '50s, Negrete worked with Pedro Infante, one of his main ranchera rivals, in Dos Tipos de Cuidado, and wed another film star, María Felix, in a marriage that Mexicans dubbed "the wedding of the century" (Felix's first appearance was in a Negrete film). One year later, he was dead from cirrhosis, not caused by alcoholism but hepatitis. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Beautifully melodic music, so appropriate for this genre. His was a golden voice, so reminiscent of the great tenors, but he was a singer who sang for the masses. Born in Mexico, he is the great Charro for all of Latin America. Que en Paz descanse, Charro mexicano!

Jorge Negrete will always remains as the Greatest. This is true for yesterday, today and tomorrow as well.

I grew up at the then famous Mexican Drive Inn Theater 'Bucaneer dr.Inn with movies that had all Jorge's great songs nostolgia big time
when I say my last name, they always ask "are you related to Jorge Negrete?" may be we are related to him cause he was from Guanajuato, n my great-grandf a t h e r came from Guanajuato too.
I can't help thinking of our home. Happy 4th!

MAS GUAPO ,INTELIGENTE ,BUEN ACTOR Y MARABILLOSA VOZ.DE LUJO EL HOMBRE
Some artists will live forever in the hearts of those that appreciate good music. Question remains, how much more could he had contributed had he not died so young?
msdt81
Awesome guy, it sucks that he left too soon
I remember at a very young age watching his movies and listening to the music as well as so many other Mexican artist and loving it If you were one who couldn't relate to this music when you were young, it is in your blood and sooner or later we all search for the culture and traditions handed down from our parents. We learn to appreciate and value who we are and where we came from.
