Biography Timeline

1982

During his child years, his father, who was also his manager, encouraged him to watch and analyze nearly every movie, recording, and concert performance of Elvis Presley. In 1982, he released his first album, Un Sol, by the Mexican branch of EMI Records, which won him his first gold disc at the age of 11. Two years later, he started touring Latin American countries including Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, and Argentina. He scored a major hit with his single, "1+1=Dos Enamorados".

Shortly after signing with Warner Records, in 1987, he fired his father and started to work with Juan Carlos Calderón.
