Mexican singer Alejandro Fernández paid loving tribute Sunday to his father, the legendary Vicente Fernández, who died this weekend at age 81.

Alejandro Fernández, who followed in his dad’s musical footsteps from a young age, posted a series of sweet photos of the father-son duo sharing laughs and the stage throughout the cultural icon’s extraordinary life and career.

“The lights have never shined brighter in the sky,” Alejandro Fernández wrote in Spanish on Instagram.

“Without a doubt, I couldn’t have asked for a better father, friend and teacher. Thank you for showing me the way. And although we miss you every day, your spirit and voice will live on forever in your family, your city and your people.”
