The American singer Ray Reyes, who became famous as a member of the group Menudo, a favorite of adolescents between 1977 and the beginning of the 21st century, died at the age of 51 of an acute myocardial infarction last Friday in Levittown, Puerto Rico, reported the Specialized media.

Born in New York in 1970 and the son of immigrants, he recently published on his Facebook account a premonitory message in which he reflected before his friends and followers about the ephemerality of life and the importance of saying “I love you” because “you never know when will be the last time ”.

Separated from his partners and father of two sons, he noted on April 21: “Perhaps today you could be doing something that will be the last time you do. Maybe today is the last time we talk to each other and we don’t know. That is why it is so important that we enjoy, that we hug, that we kiss, say thank you, sorry, I love you, I love you … Because perhaps today could be the last time. “

Despite paternal resistance, the artist made his debut in the group in 1983, along with Johnny Lozada, Ricky Meléndez, Charlie Massó, Miguel Cancel and Roy Rosselló, replacing Xavier Serbiá, after attending the audition process at the offices of Padosa , In San Juan.

“If you are not there” was one of his most emblematic songs with Menudo, but he also gave his style to popular songs performed by previous members such as “Tú te imaginas” and “Quiero ser”, which he performed in Portuguese during the time when the group entered the Brazilian music market.

Among the many historical moments that Ray lived in Menudo was the delivery of a Grammy award to Michael Jackson, in 1984.
