It is with deep sadness and grieve that the music industry is left behind after they learned that singer/ songwriter Trini Lopez has passed away due to the effects of the corona virus.
One of his biggest successes is without a doubt the hitsingle: ‘If I Had A Hammer.’ Produced in 1963 as part of debut album: ‘Trini Lopez Live at PJ’s’, which was recorded at Reprise Records. The label of Frank Sinatra.
Trini Also collaborated on La Bamba, which was also part of this LP.
In 2005 he participated at the benefit concert, in honor of the victims of the Tsunami in the Indian Ocean area.
Also in 2013 he played a series of gigs with Andre Rieu in the Netherlands.
Trini Lopez had reached the beautiful age of 83. His passing away leaves grieve and sadness all around the globe, as his songs were had huge value and are therefor loved and listened by many people.
As a reminder to a great artist and as an act of sharing my condoleances with Trini’s family and Heritage, I am very pleased to give him an honorable salute by writing this post and sharing one of his biggest songs in it.
He will certainly be missed.
