Jorge Hernandez, lead singer of Los
Tigres del Norte, says his group's first corrido song about
gay love shows that love has no limits.
“Los Tigres are known for telling
stories, for narrating the realities in society,” Hernandez told
AP. “It is evident that we have in front of us a great
community that has been standing out more all these years.”
Era diferente (She was
different) from their latest studio album, Realidades
(Realities), was written by Mexican composer Manuel Eduardo Toscano
and tells the story of a girl in love with her best girl-friend.
“We dared and we got wonderful
results,” Hernandez said of including the song.
“When we sing it, you can see how
that community (LGBT) cheers up,” he said. “It has been a song
that has attracted attention and we do it with the pride of that that
exposes itself and also exposes a situation that is very relevant.”
“The evidence is there, no one can
hide it and I think we have to be open to love in any way, as the
song goes,” he added.
