I'm still the same as before and thanks to God, right now I enjoy a career that has given me a lot.

I have been working together with Sergio George and Julio Reyes as producers for a long time as well. If we talk about learning at a professional level, I prefer
have a team that knows you and supports you. It is very important. At the level of life I have learned that there are high moments and others low, as in the life of any human being and that you have to put desire and make an effort to move forward », he emphasizes.
Salsa cannot be understood for decades without this New York singer-songwriter. «
Salsa has always had an important place through time, from Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Fania... I feel blessed to have the opportunity to take my music around the world.
