Gabriel, of course, is a true legend in Mexican music, and his work has impacted those around the globe.

That wasn’t lost on Anthony, who cried when it came time to pay tribute to Gabriel in a speech recalling how he had first seen JuanGa on that very same stage years ago.

A concertgoer shared:

“There was not a dry eye in the audience during this performance.”


Anthony then performed JuanGa’s classic Abrazame Muy Fuerte, and encouraged the audience to sing along (below):

Anthony took to his own Instagram account, too, to pay tribute to JuanGa with a very poignant picture (below):
