The story of late-'60s folk rock singer Rodriguez's fall into obscurity and poverty, told movingly in the documentary "Searching for Sugar Man," is remarkable. Just as his surprising is the story of his resurrection since the movie debuted at Sundance in January, winning the audience and special jury prizes, and its release in theaters this summer. Since then, Rodriguez's music has found its way onto iTunes, and the movie soundtrack hit No. 3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Rodriguez is playing concerts across the country  and is booked to play Carnegie Hall »
