Juan Gabriel, Mexican singer-songwriter dies at the age of 66 on Sunday August 28,2016 in Santa Monica, California due to a heart attack. This is so sad seeing another music icon go, leaving us very sad but will always be remembered by his songs/music. I decided to make this special blog about him to tell you about my reaction to his death and the many moments I remember him by.
Growing up in a Mexican household you all know that your mom always watching novelas and you always end up watching them with her. I always remember the theme song of the novela Abrázame Muy Fuerte, which I would sing along to it like many others. If you don't remember this theme song you might remember these other novelas like Te Sigo Amando, Mariana de la Noche, Inocente de ti, Leonela,muriendo de amor, and Maria Emilia,querida. If you do not remember the I will post all the theme songs below so you can hear them.
I think one of the moments I will not forget was watching the Latin Grammy Awards in 2009. When Juan Gabriel stole the show at the end, in which he was invited to sing one or two songs and got a special award. At the end he gave a mini concert lasting about half an hour making the award show run a bit late.It was worth watching and will always be one of my favorite moments that I will remember.I will also have the videos from the Latin Grammy Awards that night and see if you guys remember watching it or not.
I was shocked like many people to find out that he was dead and felt that one more music icon was gone. It is just so sad to hear about this but he will never be forgotten and this songs will be a legacy that will live on and on. Juan Gabriel you will always live in our hearts and will keep hearing your music.
