La Nueva Oreja?
The Spanish Alternative Scene recieved a huge blow on November 20th when La Oreja de Van Gogh (Van Gogh's Ear) announced that their sugary, sweet-voiced siren, Amaia Montero, would be leaving the band after 11 years as lead singer. Montero made this announcement in order to pursue a solo career.
As fans absorbed the shock and felt the loss, the rumor mills began to spin. At one point it was rumored that Mexican pop-sensation, Paulina Rubio, would serve as the bands lead singer. The latest rumor was that Edurne García, winner of the Spanish, American Idol-esque reality TV show, Operación Triunfo (Canal Satélite Digital), would become the new lead singer.
However, the group announced on their blog that the Edurne García rumors, were just that - rumors. They encourage fans to be patient and not believe everything they read/hear.
If you have any ideas on who could be the Nueva Oreja send a comment our way.
