Jorge Negrete (November 30, 1911 Guanajuato-December 5, 1953 Los Angeles) a.k.a. Jorge Alberto Negrete Moreno, George Negrete, El Charro Cantor or Jorge Negrete y Pedro Infante was a Mexican singer and actor. He had one child, Diana Negrete.
Negrete was one of the most popular Mexican icons of the 1940s and 1950s. He began his career as a singer in 1931 and quickly gained fame for his powerful voice and traditional Mexican ranchera music. Negrete also acted in numerous Mexican films, earning critical acclaim for his performances. He was known for his strong, masculine presence and his ability to portray the quintessential Mexican charro (cowboy) on screen.
Negrete helped to popularize Mexican music and culture both nationally and internationally. His 1946 film "¡Ay, Jalisco, no te rajes!" became one of the highest-grossing films in Mexican history and helped to establish him as a beloved cultural figure. He went on to star in many more films, including "El Peñón de las Ánimas" and "Han matado a Tongolele."
Despite his immense popularity, Negrete was also a controversial figure. He was criticized for his support of the Mexican government, particularly during the dictatorship of President Miguel Alemán Valdés. Negrete's politics and his close relationship with the government led to accusations of censorship and propaganda.
Negrete died at the young age of 42 due to a cirrhotic liver, which some attributed to his heavy drinking. His legacy as a cultural icon and musical legend endures to this day.
