Marco Antonio Muñiz (born March 3, 1933) is a famous singer from Jalisco, Mexico. Known all over Latin America, Muniz actually has declared publicly and in most countries he has visited, that Puerto Rico is his second country, and many Puerto Ricans consider him to be an "honorary Puerto Rican". A few Puerto Rican song standards (such as the danza "Alondras en el bosque") have Muñiz as their definitive interpreter.
Muniz was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. Since early age, he showed musical talent, specifically as a romantic singer. He is the extraordinary voice of "El Trio Los Ases" that rivaled "El Trio Los Panchos".
Muniz's first album was a tribute to singers of other eras. It was titled "Aquellas Canciones!" ("The Classic Songs!"), and it was released in 1956. That was the first of close to 80 albums, all of which he recorded under the BMG or RCA Internacional labels.
His extensive solo career includes top 40 hit chart singles all over Latin America such as "Voy a Cambiar Mi Corazon" by singer/composer Miguel Poventud/Peer Music. He is an international artist with fans in Brasil and Poland.
In 1965, he began an uninterrupted streak of years traveling to Puerto Rico's Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan around Christmas, to offer concerts there (at one time, Muñiz claimed he was such a regular at the hotel that could figure out his way out of any of the hotel's suites and out of the facility blindfolded). This lasted close to thirty years. Muñiz has since returned for yearly shows at the Caribe Hilton, this time around Mother's Day.
In 1967 he was playing a hotel nightclub in Caracas, Venezuela, and left the facility during one of his breaks. A bomb exploded at the nightclub, demolishing the stage and killing various musicians. Muñiz escaped unharmed.
He has also performed at large stadiums and coliseums throughout his career with prominent Latin artists in the United States and Latin America.
Among the albums recorded by Muniz are Marco Antonio Muniz con Los Trovadores del Caribe (Marco Antonio Muniz with The Trovadores del Caribe) which was his fourth album, Mi Novia es Guadalajara! (Guadalajara is my Girlfriend!), which was his fifth, Salsa a la Manera de... (Salsa, Marco Antonio's Way..., which represented his first foray into the Salsa rhythm), 1991's Mi Borinquen Querido (My Dear Borinquen, where he paid homage to Puerto Rican folklore music), a 1993 dedication to Pedro Infante, and a 1997 album and CD which was dedicated to Jose Alfredo Jimenez.
Apart from his multiple albums and concerts, Muniz has also appeared numerously on television shows across Latin America, but, especially, in his native Mexico and his beloved Puerto Rico. (Courtsey of Wikipedia.org)
