Alejandro Fernández Revealed
GRAMMY-nominated artist Alejandro Fernández was featured at The Recording Academy's first international installment of GRAMMY Artists Revealed, presented by MasterCard, on Sept. 1.
Taking place in Mexico City, the event showcased Fernández in an intimate setting, performing an acoustic set of new renditions of old favorites and brand-new, never-before-heard tracks. Fernández was accompanied by percussionist Luis Conte, longtime musical director Hernando Hernandez, guitarist Ramon Stagnaro, and Mario Alberto Zapata on the accordion. Songs performed included "Si Tu Supieras" and "Abrazame" from his GRAMMY-nominated albums Me Estoy Enamorando and Muy Dentro De Mi Corazon, respectively, as well as tracks off his most recent releases, Dos Mundos: Evolución and Dos Mundos: Tradición. Fernández also performed selections from José José, Cuco Sánchez, Mario Sandoval, and Joan Sebastian.
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Fernández began singing in 1991 thanks to the encouragement of his father, legendary ranchera singer Vicente Fernández. Since then, he has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and accumulated an impressive number of awards and recognitions, including three GRAMMY Award nominations (two in 1997, one in 1999), two Latin GRAMMY Awards (2000, 2004), and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition to his father, Fernández has performed duets with other talented artists throughout his career including Beyoncé, Miguel Bosé, Jose Carreras, Plácido Domingo, Gloria Estefan, and Julio Iglesias, among others.
