Jesse & Joy will honor El Divo de Juárez with a special performance…
The Latin Grammy-winning Mexican duo, comprised of Jesse Huerta and his sister Joy Huerta, have joined the star-studded roster for the tribute concert for the late Juan Gabriel, Eternamente Juan Gabriel, taking place on February 18.
In addition to Jesse & Joy, the lineup includes Juanes, David Bisbal, Pepe Aguilar, Natalia Laforurcade and Luis Fonsi.
The official event poster with the artists performing at Foro Pegaso in the State of Mexico has been shared over social media.
Other confirmed singers include Yuri, Emmanuel, India, Shaila Dúrcal, Yuridia, Kinky, John Fogerty, Aída Cuevas, Fernando de la Mora and Andrea Bocelli.
In a video shared on Gabriel’s official Twitter account, Juanes invites his fans to join him for a “heartfelt tribute” honoring the late singer.
Eternamente Juan Gabriel was announced by the chart-topping artist’s family back in December.
“We have the support of Mexico’s government to produce something of high quality, just like the concerts my father gave us,” the singer’s son, Iván Aguilera, said in a press conference. “It will be something very special where people will be able to relive the experience of watching their idol Juan Gabriel.”
Gustavo Farias, musical producer for the tribute concert, offered details about the production, teasing a “very big surprise”: “During performances, we will be showing images of Juan Gabriel but we have a very, very big surprise. I can’t say much yet but we will be using high quality technology.”
