Eduardo Capetillo

"La Mujer Que No Sone"...

music break

La Mujer Que No Sone is written by Ricardo Arjona and here a young Eduardo Capetillo performs in the early nineties. It was a signature song for him, as part of the soundtrack he recorded for the 1990 telenovella Alcanzar una estrella (To Reach for a Star). The story line was of a plain, awkward girl who fell in love with her idol, played by Eduardo, who she meets through her machinations. She lived her dream.

As Eduardo sings he uses body movement and hand gestures to reinforce the lyrics.
