Celebrating Black Music Month: Jon Secada

You can’t talk about the ’90s without giving props to Jon Secada. Born in Havana, Cuba and raised in Miami from the age of nine, his passion and talent for delivering the hotness is undeniable. Starting out as one of Gloria Estefan‘s background singer and then co-writer, he stepped out on his own in major way when releasing his self-titled ’92 album which featured the song Otro Dia Mas Sin Verte. Oprah went cray-to-the-zay and featured him on her show which turned him into a household name throughout the country. His passion overwhelmed housewives all throughout the Midwest. His debut sold six million plus copies worldwide and was certified triple platinum in the U.S., where it reached No. 15 among Billboard Pop albums. While he’s kind of lost his luster in the American market, Secada is still on fuego all throughout Latin-America. Secada is black. He makes music. He released this song in English (I don’t like that version). And so, here’s to him!
