Bravo Juanes!

21 Sep

If you live in the US you probably saw it on the nightly news on Sunday, Juanes triumphed with his Paz sin Fronteras concert. Unfortunately we were limited to soundbites and about a minute of footage, but this was enough to know the event was a major success. Even Obama adressed it in an interview with Jorge Ramos (Univision) and ABC World News tonight did a feature on it.

 However, strangely enough, hispanic magazines online, such as People en Español, which have a following in Miami, did not make a big deal out of it. They were recycling news from  the weekend and only mentioned it in their third or fourth paragraph, as if to hide it. Hmmmm… será que estos medios, artistas, empresarios cubano americanos no pudieron contra Juanes, Bosé y compañia y siguen enojados? A lo mejor no les llegó el memo de que el mundo está cambiando, and we must change with it! 

Qué bueno que a Juanes se le ocurrió hacer esto, y que no desistió a pesar de las amenazas contra él o contra su familia. Yo creo que se aplica la frase célebre de Paul Newman en una de sus películas (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), “I have vision, and the rest of the world wears bifocals.”
