Juan Gabriel Podcast ‘My Divo’ Sets Premiere Date

Apple TV+ is launching an original podcast — in English and Spanish — told through the lens of the late iconic Mexican singer Juan Gabriel.

The first two episodes of My Divo will debut July 1 and the superstar performer, also known as El Divo de Juárez, will serve as a guide for host and award-winning journalist Maria Garcia as she goes back to her hometown roots and looks at his legacy while trying to reconcile with her own identity and reexamine the similarities within their Mexican heritage. The eight-part series will also explore Gabriel’s personal life and public persona, offering new details about his life, including how his sexuality was perceived and the impact it had on his career.

Gabriel was born in Parácuaro, located in the western Mexico state of Michoacan. He became a cultural icon, known for his flamboyant style while breaking barriers within the Latin music market. He sold more than 100 million albums and months after his death in August 2016, he won his long overdue first pair of Latin Grammys, including album of the year. Gabriel was named Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year in 2009.

Garcia created the podcast Anything for Selena, for which she was named Apple Podcasts’ 2021 Newcomer of the Year. My Divo is produced by Pulitzer Prize-winning podcast studio Futuro Studios. Garcia and Marlon Bishop are executive producers.
