Julián Figueroa: Carving His Path in the Music Industry
Athough Julián Figueroa had not yet achieved the fame and recognition that his father, Joan Sebastian, had obtained during his career, he was on the right track. With two albums to his credit and appearances in soap operas, he was beginning a solid career that seemed destined for success.
Julián Figueroa was the fourth child of Joan Sebastian and the only child of Maribel Guardia—the result of the relationship of several years between the singer and the actress. Although their relationship did not end well due to due to infidelity by the singer, both remained friends with an excellent relationship for Julián’s sake.
It was Julián’s mother who encouraged him and accompanied him from the beginning of his career. In a few years ago, he said, “For all of us, for each one of us, our mother is very special, but I would like to boast that I have the best in the world. In the moments when I have needed you the most, you have never let me go, and I think that the way I can repay you is by moving forward, improving every day as a man, and I will not disappoint you. I will go far, you will be there by my hand, and I will always thank you.”
In 2014, Julián went to the National Auditorium to see a concert by Vicente Fernández, who invited him on stage to sing “Forever” by Joan Sebastian. “Apart from being the son of who he is, he is now my godson,” Vicente assured the public. From there, Julián began singing in different forums until he released his first single entitled “Supposed” in 2016. Since then, he has released three albums and gained a very solid fan base.
Big Break with TV Series: “Mi Camino es Amarte”
But his big break, which would make him best known to the public, came in 2022 with the telenovela “Mi camino es amarte,” in which he shared credits with Gabriel Soto and Susana González. There he played Leonardo Santos, brother of the character played by Soto, and some of his themes were used during the novel.
Despite some addiction problems, thanks to his family, Julián was able to overcome them. He was always very jealous of his private life, worried about not exposing them to the cameras. In an interview, he said, “My wife is a very important pillar, if not the most important in my life. She is a magnificent woman, an excellent mother, and I believe that without her, I would not be where I am at this moment.”
Julián died, leaving his wife to be, Imelda, and his son José Julián. He had planned to marry her very soon in the Church.

In one of his last posts on Instagram, he acknowledged how much he missed his father: “To hell with the Grammys with fame and money. Well, my only wish is to hold you… one more time.” Now, probably, he will be able to fulfill that wish.
