SYNOPSIS: This mini-series follows the life and career of legendary Mexican singer/songwriter Joan Sebastian honoring his accomplishments just a year after his untimely death. His love of life will be shared along with his passion for his music and his fans. This story will pay tribute to the "people's poet," as he is affectionately known, giving audience a unique look at the life of the singer as a child, his many struggles growing up, and his meteoric rise to fame. Jose Manuel and Julian Figueroa, Joan Sebastian's sons, will play Joan at different stages of his life. Livia Brito will play the role of Maribel Guardia, one of Joan's true loves.

A touching story of a poet who never surrendered in the face of adversity, the mini-series takes us back to the 1950s to the small Mexican town of Juliantla, where Joan Sebastian was born and, ultimately, died last year. The story features Sebastian as a young man migrating to Chicago to pursue his dream, the women who inspired him, and how he launched a successful recording career that would make him one of the top-selling GRAMMY Award-winning artists whose songs will live forever.
