Latin Times/Fonovisa

In an emotional reunion with his bandmates, Eduin Caz, lead vocalist of the renowned Mexican music band Grupo Firme, offered a heartfelt apology for his abrupt departure four months ago, citing serious health concerns.

Caz's return to the group marks a significant moment for the band, known for their explosive impact on the Latin music scene, as they prepare for their highly anticipated 2024 tour.

A severe health crisis

Caz's departure from Grupo Firme earlier this year was marked by concerns over his physical and mental health. The singer, known for his dynamic stage presence and soulful voice, had been diagnosed with Barrett's Esophagus, a condition that raised serious concerns about potential cancer risks. This diagnosis, coupled with the relentless pace of the music industry, led to a period of emotional turmoil for Caz, impacting not only his health but also his personal life, including a temporary separation from his wife, Daisy Anahy.

During his time away from the limelight, Caz focused on his health and well-being. The break provided him with a much-needed respite, allowing him to regain his strength and reevaluate his priorities.

Eduin Caz's apology to Grupo Firme

In a recent gathering with his colleagues, Caz openly addressed the challenges he faced in 2023. He acknowledged the sudden nature of his departure, which had come as a shock to many, and expressed his eagerness to make amends.

"I did not take them into account when making that decision, and I greatly apologize, but I feel in my heart that it was necessary. I was going crazy," Caz said. "I felt: You always have to know where you are to know where you are going to get to. We reached a level that we never imagined. Something very, very big was achieved."

The band's story is one of passion, perseverance, and unity. From performing in local bars to dominating stages worldwide, their journey has been nothing short of inspirational.

Grupo Firme's rise to fame was propelled by a unique blend of traditional Mexican music and modern sensibilities.

Their song "Ya supérame" has half a billion views on YouTube.

More than music

Grupo Firme's influence extends beyond the music industry. Their involvement in events like NFL games has highlighted their role in promoting cultural inclusivity and diversity.

They are also the first important Mexican music band to openly embrace the LGBTQIA community. Jhonny Caz, Eduin's brother and one of Grupo Firme's singers, got engaged to his boyfriend on stage, during one their concerts.
