As a boy, Puerto Rican recording artist Gilberto Santa Rosa was strongly influenced by 1960s salsa music, which awakened his lifelong passion for music.  He recorded his first album at 14, and has since gone on to have more than 20 albums and 14 number one hits on Billboard’s Latin Tropical Airplay charts.   

In the mid-1980s, his career flourished and a radio announcer nicknamed him “El Caballero de la Salsa” (Gentleman of Salsa).  In the 1990s, he joined the Sony label and earned 13 gold albums, 13 platinum albums, and three multi-platinum distinctions. 

The industry’s appreciation of his incredible talent continues as evidenced by several awards and accolades.  Gilberto Santa Rosa won Latin GRAMMY® awards in 2006 and 2009, and in 2007, he won a GRAMMY® award for best tropical production.  Also in 2009, he received five nominations for Premio lo Nuestro, making him the most nominated artist that year.  He has been nominated for three prestigious awards in 2011 as well.

With a fan base that stretches from Spain to Chile, Gilberto Santa Rosa’s latest album, “Irrepetible” (Unrepeatable) is aptly named—his remarkable career is certainly hard to replicate.  

CHCI Gala attendees are in for an “Irrepetible” experience on September 14 when the “Gentleman of Salsa” Gilberto Santa Rosa entertains the audience with his extraordinary tribute to Latin music legends including Celia Cruz and Tito Puente.  REGISTER NOW!
