Sixto Diaz Rodriguez, also known as Rodrí-guez or Jesú-s Rodrí-guez, is an American folk musician from Detroit, Michigan. His career initially proved short lived, with two little-sold albums in the early 1970s and two Australian concert tours. Although retaining a loyal following in Australia, unknown to Rodriguez his albums became extremely successful and influential in South Africa. According to the film-makers of the documentary about him, Searching for Sugar Man, at one time he sold more records than Elvis Presley in South Africa, though he was mistakenly rumored there to have committed suicide. In the 1990s, determined South African fans managed to find and contact Rodriguez, which led to an unexpected revival of his musical career. This is told in the 2012 Academy AwardР winning documentary film Searching for Sugar Man, which helped give Rodriguez a measure of fame in his home country. On May 9, 2013, Rodriguez received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from his alma mater, Wayne State University, in Detroit. Rodriguez lives in Detroits historic Woodbridge neighborhood, which he is seen walking through in Searching for Sugar Man.
