Alex Campos

Biography

Alex Campos is a Christian singer, songwriter, and minister who has won numerous Latin Grammy, Premios ARPA, and GMA Dove awards. His music is well-known throughout the Spanish-speaking Americas. Campos began his musical career at age 14, not singing but playing the recorder in his church's worship group. At 17, his first real band, Misión Vida functioned primarily as a service worship group in church, though Campos was already writing songs. His debut studio album was 2003's Al Taller del Maestro, which was released by the CanZion Group. The album was certified platinum by Asociación Colombiana de Productores de Fonogramas (ASINCOL). It also ended up placing high on the Latin, American Christian, and gospel charts and established Campos' career. He was nominated for four Premios ARPA awards and won as Composer of the Year. It was the first of many. His next offering, 2004's Como un Niño and 2006's El Sonido del Silencio, didn't rank nearly as high. Campos began co-writing with his cousin Joshua Flores in 2006; the latter added more traditional Colombian folk flare to Campos' lyrics. In 2008, Cuidaré de Ti, hit the Latin, Latin pop, and American Christian charts. In 2009, it was nominated for a Grammy for Best Christian Album (Spanish Language). By this time Campos had become a YouTube sensation and his soul-stirring live videos racked up millions of views, pushing his concert album and video Te Puedo Sentir to a much wider audience. It too was nominated for a Grammy for best Christian album (Spanish Language) in 2010. That same year, Campos returned to the studio, emerging with Lenguaje de Amor in August. It proved the first of Grammy winners in 2011; he took a second one for 2012's Regreso a Ti at the 2013 ceremony. That year, Hillsong: Global Project Español, on which he was a featured artist, won Spanish Album of the Year at the GMA Dove Awards. Campos and Flores stopped writing together in 2013. The singer issued Derroche de Amor, his first album in a decade without his cousin, in the spring of 2015. It entered both the Latin album and Latin pop charts. ~ Thom Jurek
