“Tonight I want to honor and thank one of the pillars of salsa music, a musical genius who recently died. The great maestro Johnny Pacheco,” Anthony said in Spanish, adding that without Pacheco, salsa would not exist.
“And without sauce, I don’t know who it would be,” Anthony continued. “Your music was the soundtrack to my life growing up in New York. It was always with me … Thank you for all the memories, Mr. Pacheco. Thank you for the music. We know there is a party in heaven. Tonight, in this stage, and we will always sing in your honor. I love you, master. “
