Latinos LOVE Juan Gabriel. Born Alberto Aguilera Valadez on January 7, 1950. The talented Mexican singer and songwriter got signed at the age of 21. Gabriel has written over 1,000 songs since, and sold more than 20 million records. I just can't get his songs out of my head, in specific the one where he yells in the end, "Te sigo amandoooooooooo!"
