Antonio Cortes is a contemporary flamenco singer who launched his career on Se Llama Copla, a popular singing competition broadcast on Spanish TV.
Although Cortes lost the competition to Joana Jiménez
, he won over a large audience with his well-chosen repertoire -- a mix of saetas, ballads, and boleros -- and passionate, sentimental voice. After the show wrapped up in 2007, he joined the rest of his castmates on an Andalusian tour and began recording his debut album, Lo Que a Mi Me Esta Pasando, which went gold after its release in October 2010. A second album, Cuando Quieras, Como Quieras, Donde Quieras, appeared one year later. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi
