He will be sorely missed.
His music will live eternally on.
Juan Gabriel, 66, was a man of grand performances, gestures and especially songs — including eight No. 1s on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. His fans have devoured his music for more than four decades.
He spanned the whole Latin world: Mexico, his country, Latin and South America, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Spain.
Where Latin people live, Juan Gabriel was part of their lives.
“Juan Gabriel is our Elvis,” declares Juanes, the Colombian star who recorded the hit “Querida” with the singer in 2015.
~~Juan Gabriel Dies at 66~~
Born Alberto Aguilera Valadez, the son of a farmer, in Parácuaro, Mexico, about 165 miles west of Mexico City, Gabriel is a courtly gentleman, the single father of four adult children. Yet he transforms onstage into a master of melodrama (his nickname is “The Divo From Juárez“) and is known to bring both men and women to tears during his two-and-a-half-hour concerts.
On Aug. 19, Gabriel launched another arena tour of the United States: the 21st century-themed MeXXIco Es Todos (Mexico Is All of Us), which will play nearly 30 cities in a 360-degree stage format. The show will include 50 mariachi and orchestra players, 10 singers and 20 dancers.
This fall, Telemundo will premiere Hasta Que Te Conocí (Until I Met You), a TV series chronicling his rise that is named after his 1968 hit song.

Juan Gabriel, a superstar Mexican songwriter and singer who was an icon in the Latin music world, died Sunday at his home in California at age 66, his publicist said.
Juan Gabriel was Mexico’s leading singer-songwriter and top-selling artist. His ballads about love and heartbreak and bouncy mariachi tunes became hymns throughout Latin America and Spain and with Spanish speakers in the United States.
He brought many adoring fans to tears as they sang along when he crooned his songs about love and heartbreak, including his top hits, “Hasta Que Te Conoci” (“Until I Met You”) and “Amor Eterno” (“Eternal Love”). His hit “Querida” (“Dear”) topped Mexico’s charts for a whole year.
A flamboyant performer, Juan Gabriel, whose real name was Alberto Aguilera Valadez, liked to wear jackets covered in sequins or dress in shiny silk outfits in hot pink, turquoise blue or canary yellow, and he was known for tossing his head before dancing or jumping around the stage.
“He has passed on to become part of eternity and has left us his legacy through Juan Gabriel, the character created by him for all the music that has been sung and performed all around the world,” his press office said in a statement.
