Willie Colón is celebrating his 70th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed musicians of his generation.
Popular musician-activist Willie Colón (Siembra, Asalto Navideño, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 70th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Colón, a cultural icon
Born William Anthony Colón Román in New York on April 28, 1950, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in American history. Colón's not just a great musician, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Willie hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Willie Colón as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 70.
Happy Birthday, Willie, you're the best!
