Seville, Sep 7 (EFE).- Alejandro, son of María Jiménez, asked the public this Thursday to “toast her and listen to her music” to understand the work of an artist who “has reached the nirvana of her profession, who It is the most beautiful thing, and on top of that he has shared it.”
Alejandro, son of the artist and the late actor José Sancho, spoke to the media in the funeral chapel installed in the Seville City Hall after his death last morning.

“None of us have found out, neither have I,” said Alejandro, who added that his mother “has spent the summer happily with her grandchildren, which is what she wanted.”

Alejandro has also conveyed María’s wish that at some point during her farewell the song “Vida” should be played, included in her latest album, “La vida a mi corazón”, which he has defined as “twelve daggers” that “reach the soul.” “. EFE
