Chalino Sánchez

Singer Who Got Death Note On Stage

Chalino Sánchez is not only remembered for his powerful voice but also for his dramatic death.

Just a day before he got killed brutally in 1992, 31-year-old Chalino received a ‘death note’ from someone in the audience during his last concert.

The content of the note is unknown, but the rumor is that “stop singing or die” was written on it.

Chalino read the paper carefully. His face turned yellow. He wiped sweat away from his forehead with one hand and began singing Soul in Love, as if nothing had happened.

The next day, he was found dead next to a road in Culiacán, Sinaloa, with two bullet wounds in his head.

His murder remains unsolved, but it is suspected to be linked to a Mexican cartel or revenge.

Posthumously called ‘El Rey del Corrido’ (The King of the Corrido), Chalino Sánchez is considered...

...one of the most influential Mexican narcocorrido singers of the late 20th century.
