Anthony Santos was born on July 21, 1981, in the Bronx, New York. “I grew up in a neighborhood that had a lot of things to offer, good and bad,” He said in a Vevo interview on his channel. “I never really got permission to be in show business, and I understand why. They [parents] feared that their good boy was going to end up doing drugs, or God knows what. But I grew up with so many good principles and morals that it just stayed in my system.” 

3. What is Romeo Santos’ ethnicity?

He’s got some serious Caribbean swag! His mother is Puerto Rican, and his father is Dominican. The names of his parents and whether he has siblings are not known to the public yet.

He had a humble upbringing, with his father, who worked in construction, under-paid but earning enough for his family with his mother staying at home taking care of them. Santos began his career by singing in a church choir at a young age. Romeo was exposed to Latin genres of music at a young age due to his parents.

4. He once admitted he started singing in church and joined the choir because of pretty ladies.

Although he admits that at first he only joined because of all the pretty ladies, it was the place that helped him become a true artist. “I started singing one day along with my cousin, and I didn’t take it too seriously. The people started telling me, ‘Hey, you have a nice voice.’ and I was like, ‘Really?’ I always had a passion for writing but I always visualized other artist singing my lyrics, I never visualized myself,” Santos said.

“It just got to the point where everyone would ask me, ‘Why don’t you just sing this yourself?’ And I always made fun of my voice and I would say that I sounded like a girl when I would sing, my voice is raspy when I speak, and when I sing my pitch is too high. It just got to a point where I said, ‘OK, I’ll give this a shot.'”

When I began my music career, I couldn’t even look at the crowd, it was so bad. I would look at the floor. If I had to interact with someone in the audience or say anything to them…I would fear it so much,” Santo said in a video on his YouTube channel.

“This was the most difficult thing for me being an artist. I didn’t have a problem singing. I didn’t have a problem writing music. I had a problem performing, and I didn’t know how to interact with people. I felt like, ‘They’re looking at me like I’m not good.’ I was very shy and very insecure.”

“With my first kid, I was a kid having a kid. I was a coward, so I ran, I wasn’t in a relationship at the time, it was just something that happened. I have a great relationship with Alex, it’s been great for over a decade. You have to be there for your kids in every sense of the word. I’m so busy with my career, and sometimes I try to balance both and end up working more. I’m a way better person than I was before,” he said at the time.
