The Puerto Rican quartet Son by Four, made up of Ángel López, Pedro Quiles and his cousins, brothers Javier and Georgie Montes, made it big in 2000 with the hit “The Purest of Pain.” After a long wait, the group is finally back – this time as a trio – with a Christian-music album titled Aquí está el Cordero.
“We used to sing about love. Now we sing about the source of love – God,” Quiles said, according to EFE news agency. “We asked God for fame, money, houses. When we got the fame and money, we went crazy and had more problems.”
López joined the band in 1998, but then left after a few years later to pursue a solo career. In 2003, the entire band broke up: Quiles got married and lived off of his profits from the group; Georgie opened a video store; and Javier started a food business.
After living the luxurious life of a musician, Quiles took refuge in God, and when the rest of the band saw how much he’d changed for the better, the Montes brothers turned to Christianity, which is what led the trio to their new album. The band will kick off their new tour in Venezuela, eventually hitting other Latin American countries in 2008.
