Raphael toured Spain in the midst of the health crisis “which is still going on, but which is no longer like a year ago”

Asked how the pandemic has affected his life and the music industry, the Spanish singer Raphael commented that he has learned to take care of himself, because "This virus does not have good intentions and you have to take care of yourself and protect yourself from it, what can you do?".

"The music industry is one of those that has affected the most -he has shown-, but fortunately we are putting ourselves in orbit and getting out of that huge crisis that has been and that is still in the making but that is no longer like a year ago".

Raphael, one of the Spanish singers who has sold the most records in his career and who has been successful among several generations, said on Wednesday in Bilbao (Spain) that his "best platform" he has always been himself, and that he must take care of himself "to always be fresh and well spoken, to last for many years".

The veteran singer, who turned 60 on stage last year, spoke in an interview with Efe about his extensive personal experience in the world of music, before participating in the first day of the International Meeting of the Spanish Music Industry, European and Latin American of Bilbao, BIME Pro.

After stating that his profession "freaks out" and you "like very much", has maintained at 78 years that, for now, does not think about retiring.

"When I’m going to retire, I don’t know, nor does anyone;there is a topic for a while", has sentenced.

Questioned by what he has learned throughout his artistic career in the world of music, he has revealed that "in every moment he has known "what he had to learn from the music industry and when it was time and not time to learn".

"Because there is a time when you have to dedicate yourself to working with the blindfold and there is another time to leave the study, to improve, to change things, to rest", has explained.

"I am not sorry for anything I have done because everything I have done has helped me, even what may not have been well has helped me not to do it again. I do not deny anything", has added.

The interpreter of unforgettable hits like "I am that", "My big night" or "Scandal", among many others, has recognized that in his cart "everything has been challenges".

"Because we have already reached 60 years of experience and to continue filling the theaters, the auditoriums, is a daily challenge. There are people who have seen me a hundred times and still see me", has added.

Asked if he has any relevant artist left to collaborate with, after having made several duet albums, the last one in 2019, he has admitted: "Some will remain, but I have recorded with many, both national and foreign, as opera singers, I think I have recorded with almost everyone".

"And the ones that I lack, with a little patience, I will record with them", has warned.

Asked if he has any dreams left to fulfill in his career, he has opined: "I think so, but I have a good habit that all the dreams and all the illusions that I have and have had, I have made them or I end up doing them. Sooner or later, I end up doing them", has remarked.

"I am not an artist who has been left wanting to do anythingI’ve always done what I’ve wanted", has emphasized.

Raphael is currently on tour in Spain with his latest album, "Raphael 6.0", with the songs that he always wanted to sing and never recorded, until now, accompanied by twelve great friends and stars of the song such as Alejandro Sanz, Pablo Alborán and Pablo López, among others.

Next week he will perform in other Spanish cities such as Malaga and Granada, the next in Barcelona and, in mid-November, in Madrid.
