Spanish singer Manolo Escobar passed away today at a hospital in Benidorm, in which he was being treated for colon cancer.

It was known that he had cancelled all of his appearances this year due to a chemotherapy treatment.

Neither the hospital nor Benidorm´s City Hall have confirmed his death yet.

In a career of more than 50 years, Escobar hits include “Mi Carro”, “Y viva España”, “La Minifalda” and “Madrecita Maria del Carmen”.

He was born on March 19, 1931 in El Ejido (Almeria), and had released more than 80 albums. He also starred in more than 20 movies.
