A New Yorker born and raised, the product of a music-loving Puerto Rican family, his parents named him Marco Antonio Muñíz in honor of the great Mexican balladeer of the same name. He began his recording career singing the English-language dance music known as freestyle, but he hit his stride between 1993 and 1997 with his first three salsa albums (<em>Otra Nota</em>, <em>Todo a Su Tiempo</em>, and <em>Contra La Corriente</em>). These productions established him as the top-selling singer in the history of the genre, able to sell out Madison Square Garden and prestigious venues internationally.
