Washington, Sep 27 (EFE).- Mexican Latin Grammy award winner Alejandra Guzmán fell Tuesday during her performance in Washington, DC, and was evacuated by ambulance, resulting in the cancellation of the event.
Guzmán, 54, was performing her song “Mala Hierba” at the Hispanic Heritage Foundation gala at the Kennedy Center when she lost her balance and fell backwards on the stage.
Several staff members went up to help her and after a few minutes, with the artist still not on her feet, they announced the end of the event.
Minutes later, an ambulance with the singer inside left the Kennedy Center.
Guzmán, known as the Queen of Rock and one of Mexico’s most successful female singers, having sold more than 30 million albums, was invited as the big star of the night, but fell during her second song after performing “Mírala, Míralo.”
On the red carpet before the event, the singer told EFE that after such a long musical career she is once again “dreaming” and has decided to resume singing classes to give the best of herself to her fans.
“I think I’m dreaming again, reaching my dreams and moving forward with my career,” said the daughter of actress Silvia Pinal.
The singer of “Eternamente Bella” and “Hacer el Amor con Otro” she said she was “very happy” to be able to sing in “such a nice and beautiful place.” EFE
