The festive Salsa single written by the young Cuban singer-songwriter Juan Jose Hernandez and arranged by producer Sergio George will surely climb rapidly in the charts as Salsa fans embrace the lively single of the ex-Gran Combo singer.
“Para Festejar” is a positive song about being grateful and celebrate what we have, regarding our health, family, friends, life, etc. What I like specially is that the song is that the song is fitting for Charlie Aponte’s decision to leave El Gran Combo, as the main reason he gave was precisely to spend more time with family. At the same time, the song has no indices of “tiradera” or negative insinuations towards El Gran Combo or any of its members.
All that said, it’s inevitable to mentally draw comparisons between the El Gran Combo single “Yo Soy Tu Amigo” and Charlie and Sergio George’s “Para Festejar”. I say (using Tennis lingo), advantage Charlie!
