Jon Secada, originally known as Juan Francisco Secada Martinez, was born in Cuba but raised in Hialeah, Florida, from the age of 12. He has so far won several international music awards including two Grammy Awards and sold over 30 million albums since his English language debut album in 1992.
Secada’s music fuses soul, pop, and Latin percussion. He has worked as a songwriter for platinum selling mega stars, Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez ( “Baila”), Ricky Martin ( “She’s All I Ever Had”), Mandy Moore and others.
Secada got his big musical break in the late 1980s when Gloria Estefan and her producer husband hired him as a background vocalist. It was then he started composing music for Estefan. He was eventually given the opportunity to perform as a solo act – a chance that led him to stardom.
In 1991, Secada changed his first name from Juan to a more marketable Jon. His major hits included “Just Another Day”, “Angel”, “I Am free”, “Do You Believe In Us”, and “If You Go”.
Secada has also performed with opera legend Luciano Pavarotti and recorded a duet with Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra.
