Peter Fernandez started his artistic career in Miami as the lead singer of several Rock n’ Roll bands. At the age of 17, he recorded his first album with record breaking sales in the Latin music market. With the band "Coke", he recorded "Sabor a Mi", introducing this classic to a whole new generation. Later, with another Miami band, "The Antiques", he recorded 2 albums and the hit disco single "Cuando Vuelva a Tu Lado" (What a Difference a Day Makes). Later, he was also the lead singer for the Ft. Lauderdale based band, "Ecstasy".
Peter made the move to Puerto Rico to join Anexo 3, a well-known group from the island. He recorded 2 more albums with Anexo 3 and wrote the Spanish version of Gloria Gaynor’s "I Will Survive".
Upon winning the Best Male Vocalist category at the International Song Festival of Puerto Rico, Peter decided to embark on a solo career making his first appearance on Don Francisco’s "Sabado Gigante" in 1984 when the show was still produced in Santiago, Chile. Soon after, he was asked by Delia Fiallo, the queen of the Spanish Soap Opera world, to record the theme song to her telenovela, "Tu Mundo y el Mio". This project gave him international exposure and landed him a recording contract with CBS International (Sony Records).
With numerous appearances on Telemundo and Univision (Spanish Network Television) and several recordings under his belt, Peter continues to enjoy performing his night club act in show rooms from Las Vegas to Atlantic City and on Cruise Ships all over the world.
