Isabel Pantojaalthough his real beginnings on television were on the program “ Peru has talent”, when he dazzled the entire jury and also the public interpreting “Sailor of lights” at 13 years old.
Then he tried his luck at
I am kids”, without thinking that she would be the best impersonator of that entire 2014 season. From then on, like many of the other contestants, she worked paying tributes to the Spanish artist she admired so much. However, everything changed when the pandemic hit.
What illness do you have?
During the pandemic, many people were infected and, although they had a bad time, they recovered. The economic shutdown affected everyone, but especially artists because public events were part of their great way to earn money, but these were prohibited. Lita Pezo was one of those struggling singers who left the stage to venture into another field.
This was stated in an interview with Infobae: “I started doing everything on the virtual issue. Greetings and concerts through social networks, but
it wasn’t enough for me I started making masks, selling food and portable sinks, I did everything. Then came the second wave, I got sick and couldn’t sing, I was in bed for a month”. However, that was not all. At the end of March 2021, the COVID-19 virus made him seriously ill to the point that he needed financial support from his friends and followers.
When asked what the worst thing about her contagion was, she replied:
“The medicines that I used for the treatment against COVID-19 affected a problem that I already had in my sight”. What she had exactly was two retinal tears in her right eye and glaucoma in her right sight.
A few days ago, the singer Lita Pezo told the program “
on the sixth day” that “eight years ago I was diagnosed with toxoplasmosis, which is the virus or parasite of the cat that embedded itself in my left eye”. The disease is caused by an infection caused by the parasite called Toxoplasma Gondii. Apparently, the 23-year-old soloist will have to live her whole life with this evil.
