How does an 18 year old born in Tuscon, Arizona to Mexican parents rise to be a highly successful regional Mexican singer? Hard work and dedication. I sat back and watched Luis Coronel’sÂ Walmart Total Access video a couple of times to try to get a handle on who Luis Coronel is. At 18 I think I was trying to become a “famous rapper” doing shows here and there trying to get known, but here lies a fresh faced man that has his whole career ahead of him. He’s well spoken, has a great disposition and is fluent in English and Spanish; from his answers to the questions he was given.
New Artist of the year at the Billboard Latin Music Awards 2014, nominated at the 2014 Premios Tu Mundo for “Feeling Social”, RIAA Certified Gold album and still in all he seems to maintain the poise and respect of a seasoned veteran. His strong sultry voice has garnered acclaim in a genre that has such a strong following and highly respected acts.
His passion for music really comes out when he speaks about his first single “Tenerte” and how wonderful it was to record such a romantic song. With lyrics like:
“No quiero que conozcas la tristeza
Tu alegria y tu belleza
Siempre sean indestructibles”
It’s no wonder how captivated the females are with him and the countless dedications men have given their ladies with this song.
So what would be better than listening to his music or watching his video? How about getting a phone call from Luis Coronel himself! — Yep thats right. By watching Luis Coronel’s amazing performance on Acceso Total, you will be entered to win one of three fantastic prizes!
About Luis Coronel
Luis Coronel is a highly successful singer of regional Mexican music. Born in Tuscon, Arizona, to Mexican parents, Coronel began singing in church choirs at the age of six. In his teens, he became a boxer. After a match he sang a song from the ring; the performance was videotaped. He uploaded the video to YouTube and his life seemed to change almost overnight as it spread virally. Coronel soon gave up boxing to focus on music. He began uploading videos of his songs to YouTube and Facebook. His growing list of followers on social networks attracted the attention of Del Records, who signed him at the age of 16. His YouTube videos have been viewed over a million times, while his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram followers number in the hundreds of thousands, counting no less than singer Luis Ortiz among of his fans.
Coronel has posted a number of his singles on the iTunes and Billboard charts, including “Mi NiÃ±a Traviesa,” “SerÃ¡ Mas FÃ¡cil,” and “EscÃ¡pate.” His debut album, Con la Frente en Alto, was released in September of 2013, and reached the top spot on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Albums chart within three weeks of release. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi
