CORO

 


Coro has been dubbed a legend in the dance music business. Through his hard work and determination, Coro has succeeded in releasing high-quality dance music that quickly became known as "Classic".

 




 

Born to a Dominican mother and Cuban father and raised in Miami, Coro began singing at age 8, joining both the choir and drama club early. By 1985, he was beginning to make strides in his career with roles in national television commercials and three guest spots on Miami Vice, playing a busboy, drug dealer, and a gang member. From his work on Miami Vice, he landed a role in Don Johnson's "Heartbeat" video.

While working on a demo with dance music producer Tolga, who already accomplished two hits, "Leave It All Behind" and "Lovin' Fool" on Cutting/Atlantic Records, Coro was introduced to pop/dance artist Stevie B. Shortly thereafter, Coro began working as a background vocalist and dancer on B.'s first tour. Once the tour ended, Coro moved to New York where he auditioned for producer Zahid Tariq. The song he was asked to sing was "Where Are You Tonight". Released in late 1988 just as freestyle music was thought to be winding down, "Where Are You Tonight" became a huge hit in many mainstream markets around the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., reaching top 25 on Billboard's Club Chart, and #1 on DMA's Dance Chart. Three follow-up singles, "Can't Let You Go", "Fallen Angel", and his ballad "Missing You" on Charisma/Virgin Records were released on his self-titled album in 1992. Coro has also filmed a Coca Cola commercial with artists such as Selena, Lighter Shade of Brown, and Lisette Melendez. Years later, Coro's releases are still among the most requested records on stations like New York's #1-P1 WKTU.

Despite the collapse of Charisma Records, Coro has continued recording and releasing singles on Cutting Records. In addition to releasing "Shadow", which was a Euro-Dance track produced by Wilson Yepez, Coro has been laying down tracks for an upcoming album. Along with his cameo appearance in Boricua Bond starring Big Pun, Fat Joe, Frankie Negron, he also worked with heavy-hitting producers Mike Cruz, Kenny "Dope" Diaz, Sean James, Artie Rodriguez, Javier Riva, Gally Molina amongst others. Joining his contemporaries such as Marc Anthony, George Lamond, Brenda K. Starr and India, in the contemporary market, Coro will undoubtedly prove he is capable of conquering any market and style of music he chooses. He recently was asked by WKTU Radio Promotion Events Coordinator to collaborate with Crystal Waters, Jana, Tina Ann, Reina, and Rich Luzzi for a remake of "Whiter Shade of Pale" for Beatstock, 2002 with over 40 hits a week. When the album in completed it could consist of dance, R&B, Latin and pop sounds.

Coro will tour and simultaneously head back into the studio to continue work on the follow-up album. Sure to gain many new fans from all his current endeavors, Coro will continue to entertain with his smooth voice, well-choreographed live shows and his willingness to give all that he has to his loyal and new audience. Coro has the stuff legends are made of.
