August 28 marks the fifth anniversary of the death of Juan Gabriel, Mexico’s most influential musical icon. The late Juan Gabriel was set to perform to a sold-out crowd at the Don Haskins Center back in 2016, but the legendary Mexican singer passed away hours before his slated appearance.

Known as El Divo de Juarez, the famous Mexican singer-songwriter’s rags to riches life story and immense music catalog throughout the decades solidified and endeared him to audiences on both sides of the border and across the globe.
