Juan Gabriel was a natural performer. His unique dance moves, dramatic performances onstage and iconic, colorful outfits are just a few things that made him stand out and earned him the nickname "El Divo de Juarez." 

He was the ultimate showman and held on to that title until his last concert in Los Angeles on Aug. 26 at the Forum, where he sang his heart out for two hours straight, danced with his mariachi and even showed off some reggaeton moves during his performance of "No tengo dinero" with Colombian reggaeton duo Zona Prieta. Two days later, Juan Gabriel died unexpectedly at 66 years old from a heart attack, in the midst of his MeXXIco Es Todo Tour which had just kicked off in the U.S.
