Latin Recording Academy Releases Statement on Passing of Miliki
The Latin Recording Academy's President/CEO Gabriel Abaroa Jr. released the following statement on Emilio Aragon, a.k.a. Miliki, who passed away on November 25, 2012.
"Two-time Latin GRAMMY winner Miliki was a singer, musician, actor, television host and writer who entertained audiences for more than seven decades. Born Emilio Aragón Bermúdez, he and his family have been renowned entertainers throughout Spain for generations. Beginning his career in 1939 with his brothers and forming the trio Gaby, Fofó and Miliki, his vaudevillian roots would lead him to become one of the most beloved children’s characters of all time throughout the Spanish-speaking world. He will forever be remembered in the hearts of young and old along with his trademark phrase, '¿Cómo están ustedeeeeeessss?.' Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends and to all those who have been touched by his humor."
