SAN JUAN – Puerto Rican singer Christian Daniel in two weeks will travel to Colombia and Venezuela for what he hopes will become an opportunity to become better known in Latin America.
The 28-year-old artist will leave Puerto Rico on May 16 for Bogota, from where he will travel on to other Colombian cities such as Cali, Bucaramanga, Barranquilla and Cartagena and later to Venezuela.
Daniel said that he secured the chance to perform in South American countries thanks to the success of his song “Un pedacito de cielo,” from his latest album “Todo lo que tengo.”
“Since I came out with ‘Un pedacito de cielo’ I knew that this song would be a Latin American success. The expectations in Colombia are pretty high,” he said.
The musician said that the popularity of the song, written by Kany Garcia, is due to “its melody and catchy rhythm” prepared by Colombian musical producer Andres Castro.
Daniel began his professional career at 17 when he recorded his first demo with veteran backup singer and vocal coach Socky Torres.
The artist sent the demo to different recording companies and it eventually found its way into the hands of Emilio Estefan, who asked the singer to travel to Miami to work on his first album – “Christian Daniel” – which was released in 2007. EFE
