The year 1977 was a transitionary year for Sebastian it was the moment when he stopped using his legal name Jose Manuel Figueroa and picked up his artistic name Joan Sebastian (Joan is how the name John is said in the Catalan language of eastern Spain) and Sebastian from San Sebastian. It was also the year he moved to recording label Musart. His introduction with the public under his new name was another success for this Mexican singer when his new disc “El Camino del Amor” sold 127 thousand copies and also reached audiences in the United States and South America. Thirty two albums followed there after and all more successful than the previous. His most recent production up to date is “Secreto de Amor” which was released in 2000 and sold over 1 million copies. – Wikipedia
