Joan Sebastian performs zealously in KC concert despite health concerns

Joan Sebastian occupies a position on the Mexican cultural landscape that's somewhat akin to a combination of Willie Nelson and Chuck Norris. The singer, songwriter, bandleader and actor was diagnosed with bone cancer 15 years ago. His ongoing battle with the disease forced him to cancel a headlining concert at Sprint Center in 2012. Sebastian didn't look or sound like a man in poor health during his 75-minute appearance Saturday.
