The 79-year-old Latin Grammy-winning singer-songwriter from Cuba, PABLO Milanés, has passed away.
His representatives confirmed that Milanés passed away early on Tuesday in Madrid, Spain, where he was receiving treatment for blood cancer.
The information was released shortly after Milanés announced that this month’s concerts would be postponed due to his hospitalization.
Milanés had a number of hits throughout his long career, including Yolanda, “Yo Me Quedo” (I’m Staying), and “Amo Esta Isla” (I Love This Island). He recorded dozens of albums throughout his career.
Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz tweeted that “the culture in Cuba is in mourning over the death of Pablo Milanes.”
Milanés was the youngest of five children and was born in Bayamo, Cuba, on February 24, 1943.
