Danny Rivera is an outspoken singer/songwriter from Puerto Rico whose career spans several decades and includes numerous hits, many of them romantic songs in the bolero tradition. Born February 28, 1945, in Santurce, San Juan, Puerto Rico, he began his singing career at an early age in his church choir. During the late '60s and early '70s, he rose to fame in Puerto Rico with hits such as "Porque Yo Te Amo," "Fuiste Mía un Verano," "Manolo," "Mi Viejo," "Yo y la Rosa," "Va Cayendo una Lágrima," and "Jesucristo." After establishing himself as a popular singer of hit songs, he began to release full-length albums such as Mi Hijo (1972), En Concierto (1975), Alborada (1976), Muy Amigos (a duet album with Eydie Gormé, 1977), and Serenata (1979). During the '80s Rivera continued to enjoy popularity and began hitting the Latin pop charts regularly with albums including Así Cantaba Cheíto González (1984), Controversia (1985), Inolvidable Tito: A Mi Me Pasa Lo Mismo Que a Usted (1986), Mi Canción Es Paz (1987), Ofrenda (1987), and El Día Que Me Quieras (1988). Though his popularity began to fade after the turn of the decade, he remained active during the '90s and beyond. En Vivo Desde el Carnegie Hall (1999) was the most successful of his latter-day albums. Following his 2001 arrest for protesting U.S. military exercises on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques, Rivera published the book Enamorado de la Paz (2002), a collection of poems and diary entries written during his month-long imprisonment. ~ Jason Birchmeier
