El Superstar: The Unlikely Rise of Juan Frances

Rated NR 90 min. 2010

Born Jonathan French in Beverly Hills and orphaned at three months, this young boy was adopted by his Mexican nanny, Nena and step-father, E.J. and raised to be a good, God-fearing Mexican with a love for ranchero music. At age 33 and blessed with the talent to sing like the angels. He takes his ranchero act from the small, half-empty soccer bars in East L.A., to a larger music festival audience where he is discovered and quickly swept into Mexican pop stardom. Juan's everyman appearance and musical style undergo a celebrity make-over. He changes his name to "El Guero" and his songs for the working-class are transformed into heartless Reggaeton.
