José José Death Biography
José José Family Background & Early Career
José Rómulo Sosa Ortiz was born Feb. 17, 1947, in Azcapotzalco, Mexico City. Born to a family of artists, music followed him always. His father, José Sosa Esquivel was a famous opera tenor and his mother, Margarita Ortiz Pensado was a concert pianist. But nevertheless, his mentor was singer Pepe Jara as his father didn’t allow popular music to be played in his house.
In March of 1963 his father left, coinciding with the era in which José, at 15 years old, started his career playing guitar and singing serenades in a trio formed with his cousin Francisco Ortiz and his friend Alfredo Benítez.
In 1965 he obtained his first contract to record his first professional record: a simple 45 RPM disc with Orfeón Records. The record had two themes, The World (“Il Mondo”) of Jimmy Fontana and My Life (Mi Vida) of Alain Barrière, and was presented under the stage name “Pepe Sosa.” Nevertheless, it didn’t have much transcendence.
Later on, he joined a jazz and bossa nova trio called “Los PEG” in which he sang and played the bass and double bass. In 1967 at a bar called “Apache 14” the composer and record producer Rubén Fuentes hears him, later signing him to RCA Víctor.
José José Financial Background
Although his financial situation at the time wasn’t good, his mother always encouraged him to pursue his music career. His father on the other hand, died of alcoholism in 1968. José entered the RCA Víctor studio in Mexico City under the supervision of composers Rubén Fuentes and Armando Manzanero. Recording his first LP record gives birth to “José José,” his artistic pseudonym. The first “José” for his first name and the second in honor of his father.
I’m continuing with my therapies to move forward
In an official statement, the government said José Rómulo Sosa Ortiz “became one of the most beloved voices in Mexico. RIP.” The iconic singer in March 2017 announced he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, according to CNN.
“Thank you for your support and for your prayers,” the singer said to his fans on Twitter in June. “I am very well, thanks be to God. I’m continuing with my therapies to move forward so that we will see each other soon, thanks for everything, a hug and a thousand blessings to all.”
José José’s Acting Career From beginning To end
José José’s acting career began with Sueño de Amor and La Carrera del Millón. In the early ’80s, as José became a performer at major venues, composer Manuel Alejandro produced Secretos, which sold over four million copies worldwide. Reflexiones followed in 1984. Roberto Livi produced 40 y 20 in Miami and Los Angeles, and José promoted the album with shows around America, including New York’s Madison Square Garden and Chicago’s Pavilion. In 1994, José celebrated his 30th career anniversary, after which he became busier than ever. The following year he re-teamed with Alejandro and released the album Grandeza Mexicana. The title track peaked at number 12 on Hot Latin Tracks and spent eight weeks on the chart. As an actor he starred in the dramatic film Perdóname Todo, playing an alcoholic has-been who tries to survive his own self-destructive tendencies and the music business. He released a second album that year, Mujeriego, which sold more than 180,000 copies in its first two weeks and reached number 12 on the Top Latin Albums chart. Its first single, “Llora Corazón,” peaked at number six. In May of the following year, the track was nominated for Pop Song of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Awards. After appearing in duet with Paul Anka on the track “Déjame Conocerte” on the American singer’s Amigos album, José finished the 20th century with his own Distancia in 1998.
In 2000, José began to experience vocal problems that affected the recording of his 2001 album, Tenampa, his first record of all mariachi tunes, which were written and produced by Juan Gabriel. Due to his weakened voice, reviewers were not kind; nonetheless, the album managed to sell half a million copies. José’s vocal problems only worsened after 2001, leaving him not only unable to sing, but often unable to speak. Hoping his health issues would clear up, he and BMG decided to issue a three-album collection entitled El Principe con Trio, featuring some of his greatest hits recorded between 1969 and 1983 divorced from their original accompaniment, with the guitar trio Los Tres Caballeros re-recording the backing music and transforming all of the tracks into boleros. The project was produced by José’s longtime colleague Rafael Pérez Botija, who also produced and composed some of the original recordings. The gamble paid off with listeners, and the collection sold well. He spent the middle of the decade acting, as the Mystery Musician in the American film Sueño and in the role of Erasmo Padilla (the father of Leticia “Lety” Padilla) in La Fea Más Bella, a popular Mexican version of the Colombian production Betty la Fea (later adapted in the U.S. as Ugly Betty). In 2006, José was a vocal coach in Televisa’s hit show Cantando por un Sueño. In 2007, he won a TVyNovelas Award for Best Supporting Actor in La Fea Más Bella.
José released another collection in 2007, Mis Duetos, which featured duets from his catalog. He did, however, contribute two new songs: “E-mail Me” with his youngest daughter, Sara, and “Aunque Vivas con El” with pop singer Reyli. The following year, he issued the single “Volver a Creer” accompanied by Yanni. The song was included on the latter’s Voces. Neither José nor BMG was willing to surrender to his weakened vocal state. Following the same basic template as on Tenampa, he issued Ranchero applying the same formula — using original greatest-hits tracks stripped of their original instrumentation, redone by an acoustic mariachi band. This exercise didn’t sell nearly as well as its predecessor. In keeping with other superstar entertainers, the singer released and marketed his namesake perfume in 2007; its profits were all donated to charities that supported treatment for women and children suffering health issues from dealing with HIV/AIDS.
