|Juan Gabriel 1950-2016|
Born Alberto Aguilera Valadez on January 7, 1950. he was better known by his artistic name Juan Gabriel. He died at his home in Santa Monica, California on Sunday, August 28, 2016.
It was one his songs that propelled singer Marc Anthony to stardom. Marc gave a concert last night in New York where he broke down as he sang "Abrazame muy Fuerte" as a tribute to him. It was heart wrenching to watch, this is also my favorite song by Juan Gabriel.
Rest in Peace Juan Gabriel, you are finally united with your beloved mother.
