Latin heartthrob sensation Chayanne will enchant South Florida audiences at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, November 19 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Thursday, September 23 at 10 a.m.
After three years away from the spotlight, Chayanne – winner of the 2010 Premio Lo Nuestro “Excellence Award” – returns to the stage in support of his latest recording and 14th studio album, “No Hay Imposibles,” released earlier this year. The album, recorded between Miami, Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Bogotá and Buenos Aires, features the hit single, “Me Enamore De Ti,” which serves as the main theme to the popular Mexican soap opera, Corazón Salvaje. On this album, Chayanne worked with general producer Javier Díaz and with other renowned industry veterans such as Julio Reyes, Sebastián Krys, Pablo Durán and René Toledo. “No Hay Imposibles” is already certified gold in Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico and the U.S.
Puerto Rican-born Chayanne (aka Elmer Figueroa-Arce) began his career at age ten with a musical group called Los Chicos. Since then, he has sold millions of albums earning more than 70 platinum and gold records and has received two Grammy nominations and an MTV Award for Best International Video. He has had more than 17 top ten hits on the Billboard charts.
Chayanne’s first two albums, Chayanne es mi Nombre and Sangre Latina, were released in 1984 and 1986, respectively, to modest success in Central America. A few years later, he released his first of two massively successful eponymous albums which included several singles that propelled him to stardom including “Tu Pirata Soy Yo,” “Fuiste un Trozo de Hielo en la Escarcha” and “Este Ritmo Se Baila Así,” “Fiesta en América,” and the ballad “Peligro de Amor.” In 1990, he released Tiempo de Vals featuring some of his best-selling #1 singles including the title track, “Completamente Enamorados,” and “Daría Cualquier Cosa.” Other Chayanne releases include Provócame (1992), Influencias (1994), Volver a Nacer (1996), Atado a tu Amor (1998), Simplemente (2000), Grandes éxitos (2002), Sincero (2003), Desde Siempre (2005) and Cautivo (2005). These collectively offered up #1 hits on Billboard’s Hot Latin Chart including “El Centro de mi Corazón” “Dejaría Todo”, “Yo Te Amo”, “Y Tú Te Vas”, “Un Siglo Sin Ti” , “Cuidarte El Alma.” Chayanne’s 13th album, Mi Tiempo (2007), debuted at No. 2 on the Top Latin Album chart selling 17,000 copies in its first week of release. The first single off the album “Si Nos Quedará Poco Tiempo” reached #1 on the Hot Latin Tracks chart.
Named one of the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” by People Magazine, Chayanne’s talents extend to the silver and small screen where he starred in several roles. In 2009, the artist returned to acting starring in a TV miniseries, Gabriel.
Despite his busy schedule, Chayanne lends his voice to those less fortunate. He is an appointed Ambassador to the United Nations for the Immigrants Foundation and serves as an envoy to the High Commissioner for the United Nations World Refugee Organization. His concern for children led him to become the Hispanic spokesperson for the Starlight Foundation, whose mandate is to grant the wishes of terminally ill children. His native country even named a road after him – a highway that connects San Lorenzo with Gurabo, formerly known as PR-203. Chayanne also spends his time promoting up-and-coming talents, such as young Venezuelan composer Paolo Tondo, author of “Me Enamore De Ti,” among other songs.
