This corrido is about the death of the great Mexican Ranchera star Pedro Infante. According to the corrido, Infante died on April 15, 1956. His plane went down in Merida in the Yucatan. In this farewell the singer asks Infante to say hello to Jorge in heaven. Most likely he is referring to Jorge Negrete. Grabado En Mexico.
