Manuel, one of the group singers talked about the experience, with his castilian humour: "Contacts with Celine? Not much because there was her husband... The truth is that all happened by chance. We were recording in Los Angeles and in the studio we knew a hawaiian producer and compositor called Johnson. He invited us four days in his studio on Oahu Island where by coincidence we met Humberto Gatica, Dion's producer, and now as well ours."
"During that days, Humberto Gatica took the opportunity to go in Las Vegas where Celine Dion was presenting her show. He told her the story of the song Nadie lo entiende, where we speak about the difficulties our manager had, three years ago, after an accident, when he came back at home in bath-chair in front of his three children..."
"One day, Celine follows, he explained me that Cafe Quijano's near relation had a serious accident which make him paraplegic. When he told me that he was dreaming that I collaborate with them, I didn't hesitate. I believe that we all have to help us each other."
"When Humberto Gatica came back in Los Angeles, Manuel adds, he gave us the surprise and the message that Celine was inviting us to watch her at the show in Las Vegas. At the end, we spoke with her. The only thing, I can say about Celine is that the greatness begins by the humility and she is the best exemple".
"This is not only my favourite Paul McCartney song, it is probably his as well, so writing a special arrangement of it for one of my favourite voices was a daunting proposition. I do not think Celine is capable of making anything but a perfect sound, and I was thrilled to hear every take getting better and better. We ended up recording two tracks together; one for my album and one for hers (The reason on the album Let's Talk About Love). Both were terrific, and it was a session to remember."
The original version is from the Beatles' album Revolver, originally released in 1966.
