Joan Sebastian’s Biography

First years

Joan Sebastian was born in the town of Juliantla, municipality of Taxco de Alarcón, in the north of the state of Guerrero, Mexico. His mother was Dona Celia Figueroa, when he was eight years old he entered as an internal student an educational establishment in Guanajuato, where he took his first steps in the world of music; in fact, he modified the lyrics of the songs and composed musical verses. Three years later he returned to Juliantla and when he was twelve years old he was interned again, but this time in a religious educational institution in Morelos, where his care was in charge of the priest David Salgado. At that time he expressed his desire to become a priest; However, his father refused to let his son dedicate his life to the church because he considered that he had a talent for music, and Sebastian’s grandmother thought it would be a good idea for his grandson to start a religious life and was willing to support him. Despite his father’s refusal, he insisted on starting a priestly life and at fourteen he enrolled as a seminarian at the Conciliar Seminary of San José, in Cuernavaca, Morelos. At the time he was a student at the seminary he composed a mass, but finally he made the decision that his vocation was not the priesthood.

The first song that Joan Sebastian played in public was «Your way and mine» by Vicente Fernández. He sang it in a singing contest in Cuautla de Morelos. He chose that theme because before the contest he sang one of his songs to the organizers and they told him to sing something more popular, so he opted to play a single by Vicente Fernández who was his mother’s idol.
