Miguel Bose visits quake-ravaged town in Mexico

Mexico City, Oct 16 (EFE).- Spanish singer Miguel Bose paid a visit to the central Mexican town of Ocuilan to show solidarity with victims of the September 2017 earthquake, record label and talent agency OCESA Seitrack said Tuesday.

Last weekend’s excursion was part of the #LoveArmyMexico initiative to aid people affected by the temblors that struck central and southern Mexico on Sept. 7 and Sept. 19, 2017, leaving 471 dead.

Bose, who now calls Mexico home, was accompanied by actor and video-blogger Juan Pablo Zurita and by prominent architect Alberto Kalach, who designed some of the new homes built in Ocuilan with support from #LoveArmyMexico.

The singer chatted with residents, listened to their stories and toured some of the renovated homes.

Bose, who has maintained close links with Mexico throughout his career, took a personal interest in the response to the September 2017 disasters, posting a video on social media expressing pride in the solidarity shown by Mexicans.

“I now understand, more than ever, why I love that country,” he said on the video.
