Jose Maria Napoleon background
A native of Aguascalientes, Mexico, the singer-songwriter got his love of music from his mother. It was her who inspired him to learn how to hum and compose his own songs. At 9 years old, he penned "Esta Tarde" and performed it with his mother. Despite not having formal training in music, Napoleon continued honing his skills while maintaining part-time jobs.
Napoleon�s singing career started after he competed in a national competition that would choose the Mexican representative to the 1977 OTI Festival. While luck was not on his side during the competition, he attracted the attention of recording executives. He was 20 years old when he released his first single "El Grillo" and was instantly followed by his debut album. The singer easily gained a following and popularity due to his charisma. His songs were a favorite on radio airwaves as well as on on-screen and on-stage performances.
