Daniel Calveti Biography

Daniel Calveti is a contemporary Christian music (CCM) artist from Puerto Rico who is among the genre's most popular Latin singers. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, on November 29, 1977, he moved with his family to Houston, TX, at age 12. He then moved to Puerto Rico at age 17 and attended a Christian university. In addition to his deep involvement in the ministry, Calveti established himself as a musical artist, not only as a live performer but also as a recording artist. He made his recording debut with Solo Tu Gracia in 2004. His second album, Vivo Para Ti (2005), was a critical success, earning nominations in 2006 for a Latin Grammy in the category of Latin Christian Album of the Year and a Premios ARPA in the category of Composer of the Year. His third album, Un Día Más (2007), was likewise nominated for a Latin Grammy and a Premios ARPA, along with a Dove Award. En Paz (2008), his fourth album, continued his growing success. Released by Universal Latino -- his first major-label release after years of association with the independent label CanZion -- En Paz was Calveti's most commercially successful release to date; the title track was his first hit single to register on the Billboard Latin Pop Airplay chart. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
