Sixto Rodriguez of Searching for Sugar ManOur 2013 headliner is Sixto Diaz Rodriguez aka Rodriguez, a Detroit-born singer-songwriter whose story is told in the film Searching for Sugar Man. Despite a lack of critical acclaim in the U.S., Rodriguez unknowingly became a star in South Africa. The film tells the story of how South African fans tracked him down in Detroit. It played at the 2012 Traverse City Film Festival and has won awards across the country and world.

The man is here tonight, the music is incredible.
~David Letterman welcoming Rodriguez to Late Night with David Letterman (view video)

“The reissue of the year is the soundtrack to one of the most compelling music documentaries ever made, about a comeback so improbable it seems like fiction.”
~Rolling Stone magazine on selecting Searching for Sugar Man as reissue of the year.
