Anthony Santos a.k.a ( Romeo Santos) was born in July 21, 1981. He is from The Bronx, New York City raised by a Dominican father and a Puerto Rican mother. Before Anthony's fame Anthony Santos was only 13 years old when he started singing and allowed him to discover his unique vocal skills when he joined his church choir group. In his teenage years he attended to Morris High School in the Bronx and during that time he also made his very own band with his cousin Henry Santos and Two other friends, the group was called "Los Tinellers" (the teenagers). The group released an album called "Trampa De Amor", by the early 2000's they changed the group name to "Aventura' and added members Lenny Santos and Max Santos. In the early 2000's while they were trying to make it big they came across a lot of problems, a lot of record labels didn't think they would reach out to others besides just the Dominican/Latin Nation. After they tried Mixing their Bachata rhythm with a little bit of pop and r&b it didnt help them, later on in the year Sony Music would sign them into the record label. In 2002 Aventura made a huge hit with their first new song called "obsesion" leading the group into fame. The band succeeded for 8 years making Bachata music for the world they made plenty of albums and made lots of hits with a ton of awards won, but in 2010 the band called quits.
