Hector Lavoe: You ever seen a coqui sing? You've never seen one because you can't see them. They're there. You can hear them, but you can't see them. And they only sing one song. And it's two notes - Just like that, all their life, their whole life. They're born to do that. And they live everywhere in Puerto Rico. And they can't survive anywhere else in the world.
Puchi: Hector never knew how much people loved him. And that's the thing. It's like he didn't want to know.
Hector Lavoe: I started singing when my mother died. I was 5 years old. My father believed that my pain was my voice.
