Voice Teacher Reacts to Jenni Rivera – Amarga Navidad


Hi everyone. Andy Davis here again from
Master of Voice, a channel with reactions to performers from across the world. In
this episode a reaction – a first-time reaction – to Jenni Rivera. So many of you
have requested her and I’m going to be reacting to her performance of a “Amarga
Navidad” a song made famous by Jose Alfredo Jimenez which many of you have
requested, as well, and we’ll be getting to a song by him that he was singing.
But in this episode, I’m going to be reacting to Jenni singing one of his
popular songs – a Christmas song. So, let’s jump right in. Wow, first of all, she’s so striking on
the stage – incredibly beautiful. But the voice she is putting forth from her soul
right now has already grasped me. Wow. Wow! Now I know why several of you kept
repeating her name over and over. It’s that vowel placement that just
gives such emotion and passion in every lyric, in every note sung. I’m impressed
with her in just a few seconds of hearing it. A rough translation of the
song title is “Bitter Christmas” and the lyrics in English continue on, “Do it all
at once, with one single blow. Why do you want to kill me little by little? If the
day is coming when you abandon me, I prefer my love that it be tonight. I like
that you left in December. Let your cruel goodbye be my Christmas. I
don’t want to begin the new year with the same love that has hurt me so much.”
Another heartfelt song for this time of year. She has such a rich tone quality to her
voice. The lyrics reside back into her throat just a bit except for when she’s
willing to give that call or cry out through some of the lyrics and then it
migrates forward, just nasal, just a bit, a little crack in the voice. So well done,
you guys. Wow! I love the tempo change. I love the tempo change there. The lyrics
go on to say, “And soon afterwards, that many things happen, that you are
regretful, that you’re very afraid. Then, you will know that what you left behind
was what you needed most but now there is no solution,” and then it goes on to
repeat some of the lyrics. She is performing this so well. She is at home
on the stage. This crowd is loving her. She’s singing with a great mariachi. Wow. I just enjoy her rich tone quality. I
can’t wait to hear so many other songs by her. You all, please leave me in the
comments some of her best songs. You have mentioned a few and I’ve got them on my
list. So, I can’t wait to hear them now. You know she almost has a bit of a
country-western sound in her voice. I am impressed by her so much…..Right there especially. A little bit of raspiness in her voice. Wow. Such a well-done performance to
his song so many of you know. I did listen to the version by Jose Alfredo
Jimenez before I watched her arrangement of this song and his was truly
beautifully done. She put her own twist with the Mariachi here in a live
performance and I enjoyed it so much. I hope you all enjoyed this reaction. If
you did, please click like and hit subscribe, leave me a comment down below,
click the bell so you know when I’m releasing new content and as always have
a great day, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad.

  6. JUST if you are curious. This is a little peak of Jenni Rivera in her literal final hours of life in her Concert. https://youtu.be/wOLtKs_IxDg
    shes in her prime and was JUST about to do the English crossover like Selena so people that didnt know her would see who she was as a person. 2013 was supposed to be Jenni’s years. ☹️❤️

  7. https://youtu.be/BM39yzSdOhY PLEASE REACT TO THIS SONG "PALOMA NEGRA" LIVE FROM MONTERREY …SHE DEDICATED THIS SONG TO HER DAUGHTER THAT'S WHY SHE WAS SO EMOTION 😞 AND SADLY THIS WAS HER LAST CONCERT SHE DIED IN A PLANE CRASH JUST MINUTES AFTER THIS PERFORMANCE 💔

  8. Reacciona al pedazo de la Pelicula Mexicana: "Dos tipos de cuidado"donde canta Pedro Infante y Jorge Negrete, like para no ser ignorada c:
    Saludooos desde México, nueva suub❤

  9. React to Jenni Rivera Paloma negra live at the arena Monterrey 2012. This was her last concert, and it was dedicated to her daughter. She was not able to meet up again with her daughter due to her plane crash after her concert.

  10. How did we go from Durcal, Ronstandts to Jenny Rivera? One of the worst singers ever. You don't have to lie Andy. She's the Kardashian of Mexican music.

  11. Hi Andy, it seems you like Mexican singers, but please listen to another great Latin singers. Please try salsa music starting with one of the best: Hector Lavoe performing "El Cantante". Thanks.

  12. Ima just give you these links of hers lol

  13. Jenny sings so many beautiful songs. My favorite ones are the one she sings in her last CD "Joyas Prestadas" which means borrowed jewels.
    Another great singer is Lupita D'alessio. I recommend to listen to "te pareces tanto a mí" from Juan Gabriel 😉

  14. Not a fan of jenni overall. I think Jose Alfredos and amalia mendoza versions are better. But she did a good job here. That being said I feel there’s many more artist you can do a deep dive into their songs over Jenni. Just my opinion

  15. She passed away in a plane crash a couple of years back, there’s been theories that she faked her death. recently people had been sayin that a YouTube cooking channel host that never showed her face ,and used jenny Rivera brand tequila, sounded like her. After people started bringing that up in the comments the account was deleted . Interesting?

  16. Ever since Jenni passed i get a full blown moment of goosebumps all over my body (very intense) when i hear her name, when i come across her books and more when i listen to her singing… Can someone please tell me why?

  17. Suena Tonto, pero quiero ver la opinión de un Experto y qué mejor que usted.
    Mi petición es que reaccione a Ed Maverick, las canciónes de él como:
    -Siempre Estoy Pa Ti
    -Fuentes de Ortiz
    -Karpe Diem (en vivo).
    A mi me gusta su estilo de música, espero y pueda hacerlo, maestro, Un saludo y un grande abrazo desde Guadalajara Jalisco.

  18. Puedes reaccionar a “Resulta” is a great song from Jenni Rivera and is a very well performance https://youtu.be/4UQATBHbjbU

  19. Hey! Please react to Miguel Aceves Mejía with his song "El pastor", I think you'll love it. Greetings from Aguascalientes, Mx

  20. Jose Alfredo Jimenez, probably the best Mexican composer of all time, was a huge boxing fan and was watching a fight during Christmas time when he yelled at the TV, "acaba de una vez, de un solo golpe!" – which translates to, "finish it already, with one single blow!" …. he then paused, and stopped watching the fight and grabbed a piece of paper and wrote this song.

  21. Listen to Rocio Jurado and also see that he is worthy of admiring the (COMPARSA) troupe of Cádiz, especially those of JUAN CARLOS ARAGON or those of ANTONIO MARTINEZ ARES… AMAZING!!

  22. Thank you for someone finally spotlighting our diva! I've requested her on so many reaction channels and you are the first, so thank you!
