As soon as we heard the news of the death of Álex Casademunt , a contestant on the first edition of Operación Triunfo ( OT ) , at dawn on Wednesday due to a car accident in Mataró, many of the singer's friends headed to Barcelona to say goodbye to the artist and accompany his family in such a difficult time. Just a few hours ago some of his colleagues from the first edition of OT, such as David Bisbal, Rosa López, Geno, Manu Tenorio, Javián, Verónica Romero and David Bustamante, came to the Mataró funeral home, where the singer lived. He has been visibly moved without being able to avoid tears.
In the images, the Cantabrian artist appears devastated and as soon as he arrived at the funeral home, he hugged his friend's mother, breaking into tears again. "That's not fair! I can not because? Someone tell me it's a lie! We were meeting, we had plans! Touched and sunk … I love you brother ”, wrote on Wednesday Bustamante on his Instagram lamenting the news and hinting that he intended to meet soon with the Catalan.
One of the best known musical themes in which Casademunt participated was Two men and one destiny , which in 2002 he recorded with David Bustamante, a generational hit that over the years has become one of the show's classics and that the two returned to perform on stage in the concert with which Operación Triunfo celebrated the program's 15th anniversary in 2016 . Just a few weeks ago, Bustamante recovered the song with a solo version and Casademunt was hurt on Twitter for not being informed. “It's a great song and I'm glad it's playing again. But a message would not have hurt either, "wrote the singer. Some differences that they seemed to have fixed and that they intended to resolve soon in public according to the last message from Bustamante.
Not everyone who traveled from Madrid to Barcelona on Wednesday could stay, as Chenoa or Natalia, who had come the day before to Casademunt's family home, have already returned to Madrid to attend to their professional and personal commitments. Rosa López has been another of those who did not want to miss the last goodbye from her friend and partner. The singer, also excited upon leaving the funeral home, has already shown her pain on her social networks after learning of the Catalan's death, as did David Bisbal, who told on his Twitter account how he found out about the news and showed himself visibly excited at the doors of his house when on Wednesday he was questioned by journalists. The Almeria native has also been sheltering his companions in these hard times.
The images in the funeral home together with the sad messages that many of his companions have expressed on their social networks after Casademunt's death show that twenty years after meeting each other In the TVE program, the friendship between many of them has remained unbreakable.
