Aqui Esta Ray Viera on CD

Ray Viera was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. Since childhood he has listened to the recordings of the great 'Soneros', such as Hector Lavoe,Ismael Rivera, Ismael Miranda, Chamaco Ramirez and Marvin Santiago. Collectively, these artists have inspired Ray to pursue his goals, combining their musical influences into his own vocal style and sensibility. At the age of 11, Ray was sent to live with his father in the 'Barrio' of Phladelphia. Although he lived outside of his native Puerto Rico, he never lost his cultural roots and musical influences. As he grew older, he often sang in local bars and family gatherings. Consequently, his talents and magnetism were soon noticed as he began to sing with various Latin music groups. Ray has worked with many Latin music legends, including Johnny Pacheco, Celia Cruz, Yomo Toro, Adalberto Santiago, Papo Lucca, Justo Betancourt, Eddie Palmieri, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, The Machito Orchestra, Jimmy Bosch, Soneros Del Barrio, Chino Nunez and many other greats . He recorded his first album for ATI Records in 1997 produced by Johnny Pacheco with Jovanny Diaz and his Orchestra. Ray has also recorded background vocals in various genres, including the soundtrack of an Off-Broadway musical entitled 'Quien Mato a Hector Lavoe' starring Domingo Quinones, soon to be a major motion picture staring Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony He also sang background vocals for Celia Cruz's 'La Negra Tiene Tumbao', her final CD, and both Eddie Palmieri's 40th anniversary CD, 'La Perfecta II' and 'Ritmo Caliente', and is the lead singer in Johnny Pacheco's 50th anniversary CD 'Entre Amigos'(2004). He also participated in Ricky Gonzalez's 'Oasis', singing lead in the songs 'Timbalero' and 'Ya Era Tiempo'. Over the years, he has toured throughout the United States, Mexico, South America and Europe. While striving to realize his dreams, he has continually performed with intense passion and emotion. Many consider Ray one of the new generation of 'Soneros' who can blend the traditional style of singing with the flexibility of a crooner and a progressive, modern outlook. After many years of being in a background role to some of Salsas greatest legends, Ray has released his debut album, Aqui Esta Ray Viera in 2002. Where he also shows his talent as composer in songs like 'Lo Mio Es Cantar', 'Borinquen y Cubanacan', and 'Corazon Cerrado'. He also composed 'Tun Tun Suena El Tambor' in Spanish Harlem Orchestra's album 'Across 110th Street'. Ray has been a lead singer in the legendary Johnny Pacheco's Tumbao Anejo since 1998. - :: - - :: -****SPANISH*************SPANISH*************SPANISH************ Ray Viera nació en Rió Piedras, Puerto Rico y luego fue trasladado a la ciudad de Filadelfia, Pennsylvania cuando apenas tenia unos 11 años de edad.
