Cristo Rey
by Azeneth González

The Mexican Mariachi ensemble and Azeneth’s powerful voice fill us with life and faith through a combination of traditional and new Catholic songs.    A Mariachi is an ensemble with styles that capture the spirit of Mexico. Being one of the most traditional ensembles with trumpets, violins, a guitar, vihuela, and guitarrón, it meets the swelling and belting voice of a singer like Azeneth. This collection beautifully captures the essence of Mariachi music and allows Azeneth’s diverse vocal ability to stand out and inspire people’s hearts.

With four original songs written by Azeneth herself, this collection includes “Va Más Allá,” whose lyrics evoke the peace and strength that we find under God’s love, as well as “Uno en Dios,” a duet with her husband, Miguel, about the blessing of marriage with God as a witness. “Tu Voluntad” is a ballad with inspiring lyrics about repentance and a prayer for strength, while “Viva Cristo Rey” uses original text that celebrates the resurrection of Christ with its energetic arrangement using a traditional patriotic melody.

The other six familiar tunes have become iconic Catholic songs in the Spanish-speaking community such as, “Que Detalle, Señor,” a joyful piece — one of Pope Francis’ favorites — about devotion and answering God’s call to walk with him. “Cien Ovejas (Visión Pastoral)” is one of the most sung pieces among Hispanic Catholics, referencing the Parable of the Lost Sheep. “Pescador de Hombres” doesn’t need an introduction, for it has crossed borders and generations. But in this collection, it is now offered with a Mariachi arrangement.

“Mi Virgen Ranchera”, “Mi Virgencita Morena” and “Paloma Blanca (Buenos Días, Paloma Blanca)” share the joy of honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe. These three pieces capture the energy of the faithful, not only in Mexico where thousands of people travel from all corners of Mexico to gather on December 12 to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe on her feast day but throughout Spanish-speaking countries throughout the world and beyond.

Through Cristo Rey, Azeneth González returns to her roots using Mariachi styles that are popular within the Hispanic community. She shares a love that is bigger than our hearts through a voice that will inspire all who listen.

Azeneth González:
Singer-songwriter, missionary and blessed daughter of God, Azeneth González uses her powerful voice to share God's word with the world.
Bio:
Nowadays it seems we are blessed by a plenitude of singers with beautiful voices. Much rarer are singers that reach inside your very being with the power and purpose of their voices, leaving you feeling touched by something truly holy. Azeneth González is just such a singer. Armed with her powerful, raw voice and her trusty acoustic guitar, this singer-songwriter seeks to awaken in the hearts of others the desire to serve God.

Having sung since she was a little girl, Azeneth went on to study voice at the Escuela Superior de Música y Danza in Monterrey, México. She rose to fame at 21 years of age as a finalist in a popular singing contest in Mexico called "La Academia" (think American Idol). It was during her time in the competition and in the proceeding months that she came to realize that it wasn't traditional success at all that she was searching for. It was God.

And so began her journey of discovering the person she was meant to be and, thus, God's calling for her life—to serve the one true God and to live as a full-time missionary. Since then, Azeneth has shared her testimony all over the world, hoping to help everyone—but especially young people—discover the love and mercy that are found in Christ. Music continues to be essential to her mission of evangelization.

Her talent and devotion are evident in her first OCP collection, the Mass setting Misa Santa Teresita del Niño Jesús. She teamed up with Juan Delgado to create new versions of two favorite songs that are included in the new collection Entre Tus Manos. Her collection Cristo Rey features Mariachi arrangements to beloved popular songs, as well as own compositions.

Currently, Azeneth lives in Monterrey, Nuevo León, México, where she sings twice a month at Holy Hour at St. John the Baptist Parish and leads spiritual exercises for young people. She also spends much of her time traveling and speaking on various spiritual topics, giving workshops, leading retreats and singing at concerts. Azeneth also participated in World Youth Day 2019, in Panama City, Panama.
