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.
Fans of the late legendary singer Juan Gabriel will soon be able to own a piece of him.
People En Español is reporting that about 45 items – including concerts suits – once owned by “El Divo de Juarez” will go up for auction in Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
Other articles include photographs, autographs, booties, personal videos and interviews as well as badges from his concerts and events.
Guillermo Garza, director of the Gimau auction house, told Mexican press that all the items are authenticated.
“We are so committed as an auction house, that will we give a certificate of provenance of the pieces we auction,” he said, according to Notimex via Radio Formula Mexico.
Garza said they are planning to do an exhibition tour of the pieces sometime in late November in Monterrey, Guadalajara and Mexico City before they are auctioned off in the first week of December.
“We want it to finish in Mexico City [and] we are in the process of contacting the Palace of Fine Arts. It would be extraordinary for people to come to appreciate these items just like they did with the singer’s ashes,” he added.
Juan Gabriel, whose real name was Alberto Aguilera Valadez, died on Aug. 28 in Santa Monica, California of a heart attack. He was 66.
