Mercedes has not been in good health. There was a moment in Mercedes’ June 2007 concert in Chicago where to the panicked concern of the assistants who had helped her on stage, she stood up to dance. Here’s a chacarera titled “Just for dancing” in the version by Los Nocheros, also available in Mercedes’s latest album. Mercedes nos bailó en Chicago, aunque casi no lo podíamos creer ni nosotros ni sus asistentes que por las caras que tenían les asustó un poco que se pusiera a bailar – no ha gozado de muy buena salud. Gracias, Mercedes.
