Portrait of the Latin pop singer
He is the Latin pop newcomer of the past 2 years: Juan Daniél delivered with “Buenos Momentos” the summer hit for all those who dreamed of vacation in pandemic times. The native of Hesse with Spanish roots and a family connection to Latin vibes looks back on a moving teenage years.
With “Corazón” he then followed up with the next hit in 2021, reaching an even larger audience. In addition, 2 features with well-known artists (LOONA & KAY ONE) In his family rhythm is in the blood: Already as a child Juan Daniél listened to the singing of his mother and the sounds of his father’s guitar. The son of two Spaniards from Castilla y León and Andalucia, the heart and temperament of the Iberian Peninsula, born in Bieber near Offenbach am Main, set musical accents early on: Even if the first recordings were immortalized in childhood by means of a cassette recorder, the later path was mapped out. Juan Daniél wants to sing.
But during puberty, the hoped-for career stood on shaky ground and threatened to fail. From a medical point of view, the diagnosis “double vocal cord nodule” allows only one conclusion: Juan can become anything – except a singer. But he does not get discouraged. Undeterred, he continues to pursue his passion as a teenager – and is successful. In addition to his high school diploma and marketing studies, as well as his first steps in the professional world, he hits the right note – in both senses of the word.
The vocal cord nodules removed in adulthood. What was the reason for that? We can only speculate about this, but one thing is certain: by singing, he probably put the right strain on his vocal chords and thus brought them up to the right temperature. Doctors gave him the green light to pursue a career in music. Since then, Juan Daniél has been reaching for the stars. At the same time, however, he does not lose his grip on the ground: at the same time, Juan founds “Herzensfolger”, a charitable institution that, together with “A Right to School Foundation”, gives orphans in Uganda a new perspective by means of schooling and food.
Then, in 2020, his career takes off: With “Buenos Momentos” he turns the pop world upside down and becomes known to a wide audience. Juan reaches over 9 million streams (spanning all platforms) with this song alone, gaining nationwide attention and inviting audiences to a musical vacation during the pandemic year. Appearances on ZDF Morgenmagazin, HR Hessenschau and RTL Punkt 12 followed. In early 2021, he released his first EP, in which he summarized the successes of the turbulent year 2020.
