With over 12 million in worldwide album sales and his own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, Pepe Aguilar is a true international superstar. Born in San Antonio, Texas, and raised in Zacatecas, Mexico, the cross-cultural influences evident in his music started early on. As a teen, he was already counting The Who and Pink Floyd among his formative musical influences for his first musical foray of his own, a rock band named Equs. It didn't take long after that for more Latin and pop elements to infuse his sound and define his musical evolution and identity.
Un Destino Musical
Music was practically Pepe Aguilar's destiny, born to two talented Mexican singers and actors, Flor Silvestre and Antonio Aguilar. Indeed, he performed his first concert when he was only 3 years of age, accompanying his father onstage at New York's Madison Square Garden. His affinity for the stage also developed into an acting career alongside his musical one.
