"Music has always been in the depths of my being." "My greatest desire has always been to be able to share it with all those who love it." - Christian Daniel
Christian Daniel is a Puerto Rican singer-songwriter and actor based in Miami, and this is his story:
From his childhood in Puerto Rico, Christian Daniel felt the longing to become a singer; and at only five years old already showed a strong vocation. He grew up in a household where music was heard at all hours and that helped train his ears in various genres, such as the ballads of Jose Feliciano and Jose Jose, the rock of Sting and the powerful guitar of Eric Clapton. During his adolescence, artists such as Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, John Mayer and Bruno Mars, among others, influenced his musical interests. His inclination toward music grew even more when he decided to take singing lessons without the approval from his parents. Some time later, he began to train with renowned maestro José Miguel Velazquez. At the same time, his skills in other areas of the art were developing; taking guitar lessons and piano to complement his studies of singing and acting lessons with renowned actors such as Adela Romero, Raúl Arrieta and Roberto Huicochea.
At the beginning of 2008, Christian Daniel signed an artistic contract with the multinational record company, Sony Music. Soon after, he embarked on a tour of more than 40 concerts around the Dominican Republic where he had the opportunity to perform alongside artists such as Kany García, Luis Fonsi and Natalia Jimenez. His triumph was multiplied as he received the admiration of the public and the press, who echoed the success of his presentations.
Due to his popularity in the Caribbean, Christian Daniel released his studio production titled “Todo Lo Que Tengo” which had the support of award-winning singer, Kany García, as songwriter and record producer. It also had the support of renowned composer Angel Arce and the multi-award winning producer Andres Castro. The first single from the album, "Pedacito De Cielo”, climbed directly to the top of radio listings in Venezuela, U.S., Puerto Rico, Colombia and other Latin American countries, and the music video scored more than half a million views on Vevo.
