Ricardo Ceratto

Artist: Ricardo Ceratto
LP: Me Estoy Acostumbrando a Ti
Song: "Un Minuto de Silencio"
[ listen ]

Argentinian singer Ricardo Ceratto wore neat shirts (equally stylish in color or black & white) and enjoyed much musical success in his home country as well as in Mexico before he converted to Christianity in the 1980s. As we all know, Christians aren't supposed to be sexy or interesting, and they're not supposed to have hit records, so Ricardo donned some boring duds, started releasing records like this one, and discontinued the distribution of his earlier, non-religious LPs. I liked you better the other way, Ricardo. I hope God gave that cool shirt back to you as a reward when you got up to heaven. You can read about Mr. Ceratto in Spanish here, in English here, and go here to listen to one of his songs about God.

[ Ricardo Ceratto: July 18, 1939 — March 29, 1995 ]
