Latinos Couldn’t Take The Heartbreak When JuanGa’s Ex-Manager Claimed He Was Still Alive

When Juan Gabriel died on August 28, 2016, the world mourned the loss of a great singer. For the Latino community, his death was even harder. To us, he was an icon that continues to live on in our culture. So it came to much surprise when news broke that JuanGa could possibly be alive that people lost their minds.

Juan Gabriel’s former manager, Joaquín Muñoz told the Spanish media that his client was still alive and was perfectly fine.

Muñoz told the press that the singer hasn’t been hiding or killing anyone or working with drug cartels. He said that JuanGa has been perfectly comfortable in his home and that we’d all see him really soon.

That’s right, he told reporters that we’d all see Juan Gabriel perform next month before Dec. 15.

Sounds unbelievable right? That’s because it is.

As much as we’d like to believe that the Mexican Elton John faked his death and is bored at home, thinking about doing a comeback — which is all alleged claims made by Muñoz —  JuanGa did die.

People on social media flipped out when they heard about these rumors.

After the rumors went viral, people began using the hashtag #JuanGabrielEstaVivo.

If this were true, why would he allow his ex-manager to tell everyone that he was alive? Makes no sense.

It should be known that Muñoz hadn’t been working with the singer for years. TMZ reports that his son Ivan Aguilera managed his father’s career for the last eight years of his life.

Maybe JuanGa will be back to perform as a hologram?

Would people pay to see that? Probably.

It would be like the second coming.

People should really ask themselves, “what would JuanGa do?”

The rumors about his fake death was a shock to all of us.

For a second, so many fans believed it was true, but then we thought about all those “Elvis is alive” stories.

Please do not play with our emotions!

His death affected so many families. We cannot handle this “is he or isn’t he” news.

When you’re talking about Juan Gabriel rumors, we take it all very seriously.

We’re thinking people would lose their lives if this rumor were to be true.

Imagine he were alive and this was all a scheme to make money?

JuanGa wouldn’t play us like that, would he?

People would be pissed if he lied to his fans.

But we’d probably forgive him eventually.

Either way, we’re still mourning the singer.

It looks as if his ex-manager, Muñoz is just trying to stir up drama between the family.

Let the man rest in peace.

Well, we’ll just have to wait and see what other drama comes of this.

Cafe Tacvba Greets Refugee Caravan In Mexico City With Support And Music

Cafe Tacvba proves once again why they are so beloved in Mexico, in the U.S. and around the world. Their compassionate spirit is evident in their music and their actions. Less than a week after they were at the Las Lunas del Auditorio award show in Mexico, both as performers and winners, Cafe Tacvba took time to motivate, encourage, and inspire others.

Members of Cafe Tacvba met the refugee caravan in Mexico City to provide support and music.

Singer Rubén Albarrán and musician Emmanuel del Real met the asylum seekers, who were in Mexico City, at the Magdalena Mixhuca Sports City arena, to greet them and bring awareness to their needs.

Albarrán and del Real treated people from the caravan with acoustic performances.

Albarrán told reporters that he wanted to use their name as a band to bring awareness to the people traveling and to welcome them as they’ve been walking for so long.

“We want to wish them well, and to take care of them, protect them, and make sure they get to the destination they have chose to go to,” Albarrán said in Spanish.

“We’re also hoping people open their hearts to them, and cheer them in their journey,” he said. Albarrán added that “there’s so much ignorance, and it’s important that we don’t criminalize them, or discriminate against them because we are all immigrants. There is no human being that is illegal. We have to remember that this could be us. You never know when we will need help to walk somewhere else, and leave behind a life with family and possessions. These people have suffered immensely.”

Albarrán also burned sage and asked for the asylum seeker’s protection.

As he burned the sage he asked that the caravan would arrive to their destination safely, and also wished for all the kids to be safe and happy.

“I hope they eat healthy and not too much sugar,” he said. “Not junk food, but healthier foods.”

Here’s another cool performance from the duo.

As the asylum seekers continue their march closer to the border, troops have already arrived in San Diego and in Arizona.

Albarrán took time to hear from the people and pose for pictures.

Albarrán’s humanization of the asylum seekers comes at time when the U.S. government continues to demonize the people seeking refuge from violence.
