David Antonio “Amazing”

David Antonio returns to the salsa forefront with his 2nd single “Amazing”, which is sure to capture the hearts of all Salseros around the world.

Puerto Rican David De Jesus Chacon, artistically known as “David Antonio”, was born and raised in Chicago, IL, where he grew alongside a loving family of talented musicians and performing artists. David never studied music, but he has loved music since he can remember. His cousin’s Iris (La Vedette de America) Chacon and Lourdes Chacon, also inspired David and contributed to his efforts as they are singers and dancers.

He began his musical roots at an early age. David, who also plays the piano, began performing for talent shows, open mic, Karaoke’s and local festivals. Raised in Chicago, where there are different melting pots, David was exposed to various musical genres such as Disco, R&B, Rock, Rap, and naturally Salsa and Merengue. His musical influences to the Salsa genre, to mention a few, are La Fania All Stars with singers such as Hector Lavoe, Willie Colon, Lalo Rodriguez, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, and also groups like Sonora Poncena, El Gran Combo, and Willie Rosario among others.

He occasionally continued playing in school shows and private festivities until he reached the age of 16, when he began performing and working professionally with local city bands, E&E Orquestra, Everardo Y Su Flota Musical, Orquesta Leal, and A and C La Banda, this one from Central Florida.

Today, this talented artist passionate about his music, art, life, and community, wants to share his passion with the rest of the world. Salsa fans get ready and enjoy….
