“THE GENTLEMAN OF SALSA” - GILBERTO SANTA ROSA
Published: Sep 24, 2019
One of the most celebrated Latin music vocalists in the world for his musical elegance and style, this native of Puerto Rico has been honored with the ASCAP Latin Heritage Award, Grammy® and Latin Grammy awards with the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album Latin Grammy for Necesito un Bolero being the most recent. His energetic personality, vocal improvisational skills and refreshing sense of humor have consistently entertained crowds with his style of salsa since the 1980s and he has the most No. 1 hits on Billboard's Tropical Albums Chart with 12 in total.
His presence with La Grande orchestra for two years, as well as his participation with the groups Don Perigñon, Fantasía Boricua of Manolito Rodríguez, and the Puerto Rico All Star Tommy Olivencia, placed Santa Rosa in the forefront of the Salsa movement of the ‘70s. He became part of the Willie Rosario orchestra in 1981 which led to musical hits like “Lluvia” and “Botaron la pelota.” Santa Rosa established himself as a solo singer in the second half of ‘80s.
The 2018 HBO Latino concert special Gilberto Santa Rosa: 40 y Contando celebrated his four decades in music. Taped in front of a live audience, it featured such hits as such as "Conciencia," "Que Alguien Me Diga," and "Déjate Querer."
