Pastora Soler has positioned herself on the testimony of Rocío Carrasco
The fact that she has recounted the attacks by Rocío Flores has caused the artist to have a gesture with the daughter of Rocío Jurado
“What pain, what suffering, what pain”. These were the three emotions that went through the body of Pastora Soler when he was aware of everything that had happened throughout Rocío Carrasco’s 25 years of silence. It was with the premiere of his docuserie, which is entitled ‘Rocío: tell the truth to stay alive‘, when the singer became one of the first public faces to position themselves in favor of the testimony of the daughter of Rocío Jurado. Then came Carmen Machi, Elena Furiase, Sandra Barneda or Elena Tablada. But the artist, champion of # YoSíTeCreo, has maintained her support until today.
When you hear a story like that and you are a mother, you empathize a lot
It was during the presentation of what he defines as his “most personal” tour, which will start this Sunday, May 9 at the Teatro Real in Madrid, where Pastora has spoken of Carrasco’s as “a tremendous story” in which your situation is “in view”. “When you hear a story like this and you are a mother, you empathize a lot,” she declared. A speech totally opposed to that of other celebrities such as Alejandra Prat, who in her day expressed her misunderstanding “as a mother” of Rociíto’s lack of relationship with her two children.
According to Soler, even more so after knowing in detail the episodes of abuse for which Rocío Flores was sentenced when she was 15 years old, “you empathize in a special way as a mother and as a woman.” What’s more, his understanding of Carrasco’s pain has been such that the one who was our representative in Eurovision has decided to take a step: “In these days I have sent a personal message to her, especially for that act of courage”.
Pastora Soler’s position on gender violence
This gesture of not shutting up, of giving his version to dignify his story after more than two decades in silence, is closely linked to the way of being of the singer of songs like ‘Stay with me’, which in these statements for Chance has assumed that “fortunately I have always been very unbearable.” “As my mother says, you have to put up with a lot, and I tell her that you don’t have to put up with anything,” he claimed.
