Born in February of 1940, Vicente Fernandez Gomez is a well-known Mexican singer, also famous for acting and producing. He is sometimes known as Chente, and as the King of the Ranchera, in many Latin American countries. He has a well-known son, Alejandro, who is a popular singer, in his own right.
For more than 35, Chente has enjoyed an illustrious singing career. His songs are ranchera music, and represent the Mexico of old, which still enjoys a great deal of popularity. In fact, he is responsible for more than 50 albums, and millions of sales.
During the first part of his life, Chente worked on his father' ranch. He also held many other jobs in his uncle's restaurant. He washed dishes and waited on tables. He also was a cashier, and finally worked his way up to manager.
One of the major influences in his life is Pedro Infante. He accompanies his mother to Infante's movies. In 1946, at the tender age of six, he proclaimed that he wanted to be just like the man. He began his singing and guitar playing at eight years of age. The music he played and sang is the ranchera music, which was playing on the radio, all the time.
Chente dropped out of school in the fifth grade, and in 1954 at 14 years of age, Chente won an amateur contest at his local television station. He began to play in clubs and local gatherings. At this time, his family moved to Tijuana, due to financial problems with the ranch. In Tijuana, Chente worked many odd jobs such as dishwasher, janitor, waiter, anything to help the family.
By the age of 20, Chente was singing full time, and traveling a great deal. He spent a lot of time auditioning at record companies, with no success. Finally in 1966, he signed his first recording contract with CBS Mexico. After that, Vicente Fernandez enjoyed success after success, even to this day.
