Whenever I have listened to the moving interpretations of Arcángel I imagined a deeply emotional person behind his vibrant voice - a great artist with his fragile side, perhaps given to smoking and drinking in excess.

However, I could not have been more wrong: Arcángel is the opposite of the stereotype of the volatile artist. From the moment we met, and throughout the photo session and the interview, he was impeccably courteous and totally professional.

Arcángel does not believe in magic and feels much more comfortable in the realm of logic and reason. He transmits the image of a consciously measured man who creates his own destiny through hard work and discipline.

Which goes to prove the old saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover or, in this case, you can’t judge a person by his voice.
