Juan Luis Guerra and his love for Christian music


With more than 30 million records sold, numerous awards and multiple successes, the Dominican Juan Luis Guerra is celebrating his 66th birthday.

Juan Luis Guerra was born on June 7, 1957 destined to excel in music. Beginning his career professionally in 1985 with the album Mudanza y Acarreo, he and his band 440 de él were nominated to attend the OTI Song Festival to represent the Dominican Republic.

The successes came like an avalanche to  Juan Luis Guerra’s life until he became one of the most internationally recognized Latin artists. His style of mixing merengue, bolero, jazz and bachata earned him to be one of the greats of the continent.

Hits like La Bilirubina, Burbujas de Amor and of course, Ojalá Que Llueva Café have been just a few songs that the Puerto Rican has placed at the top of the music charts.

In a decades-long career there are some facts and passages that can be overlooked or unnoticed, such is the case of Juan Luis Guerra’s foray into religious music.

Juan Luis Guerra and religious music It has been in different interviews that the musician has mentioned that his heart has found itself empty despite fame and money. At the beginning of the millennium, Juan Luis Guerra found two preachers who spoke to him about the word of God, inviting him to join.

In the year 2000 he made a commitment to God to be part of the More than Victors church where he led worship, but it was four years later that Guerra released the album Para Ti. An album focused on the religious, reflecting his Christianity.

This production received the Billboard awards in 2005, in the Gospel-Pop and Merengue Tropical categories, for its hit Las Avispas. The songs were based on verses from Deuteronomy.
