Do you know Hector Lavoe? If not I'll tell you then. He's one of the biggest Spanish-language singers in the 1970s, but personal tragedy and a heroin addiction left him penniless and dying from complications from AIDS. He probably was best known for his crystal-clear voice and an incomparable talent for improvisation.
In a great respect for him, Handprint Entertainment is about to bring into life his biopic. It's titled "El Cantante." The Leon Ichaso direction will begin filming November 14th in New York for four weeks, with one additional week of filming taking place in Puerto Rico.
Set to star in is Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony. The Latin singer is set to play Hector's wife Puchi.
