One of the biggest names in Latin music, Juan Gabriel is all set to take to the stage once again. For years, Gabriel has entertained fans and his music has become associated with some of the biggest hits in Latin music history. His love affair with music began at a very young age and that has paved the way for him becoming one of the biggest names to come out of Mexico. Juan Gabriel tickets have been the talk of the town more or less every time he has gone on a tour and that is expected to be the case this time around as well.
Juan Gabriels real name is Alberto Aguilera Valadez and he was born in a little town called Paracuaro. Gabriel first got hooked to music when he was sent to a boarding school. He met his teacher Juan Contreras there who taught his young student multiple things including music. Gabriel was a quick learner and by the time he was thirteen years old, he wrote his first track.
Gabriel left the school not too long afterwards and began to perform as a singer. He changed his name to Adan Luna. His talents were there for everyone to see and slowly but surely, Gabriel began to make his presence felt. His road to stardom was about to begin and in some style too.
Gabriel earned his first recording contract in 1971 and changed his name to Juan Gabriel. He then proceeded to write and release his first major hit, No Tengo Dinero. The song was included in his debut album titled El Alma Joven
The track was a huge hit and so was the album. The two combined to bring Juan Gabriel to the attention of the masses. He has been under the spotlight for all the right reasons ever since.
