I speak from a heart broken by pain, impotence and with this worry that I feel, and I feel that it will take a long time to forget. As I said last night, the respect for my audience is the biggest thing I’ve learnt in these 20 years. I put everything in my power to overcome this stage fright which came into my life on the 8th of March this year, and I thought it had passed, but last night it happened again in Malaga, in front of an audience to which I owe so much, and at a land that I feel my own, my strength failed me again, this time affecting even my throat. I can’t thank you enough for your love and understanding, and I have to tell you that I haven’t got any strength left to continue. I should have taken the decision to put my career aside a few months ago, but my desire to fight pushed me to go on. Today I have to announce my decision to leave my professional activity until I have regained my self-confidence.I naturally wish Pastora all the best and I really hope she will return to the music scene soon. #TodosConPastora.
I’m sorry with all my heart.
