Based out of Tampa, Florida, this Puerto Rican-Colombian singer/songwriter didn’t set out to make music at first. Born a PK (pastor’s kid), Leonardo began taking piano lessons at age 13 but hated it to the point of not practicing and skipping class by hiding from his teacher behind the walls in the fine arts school he attended. Little did he know that this same “music” that he so hated would serve him as a vehicle to reach thousands of people around the world.
At age 16 Leonardo moved from Puerto Rico to the United States where he finished high school and began leading worship and conducting the choir at his dad’s church. While in college, Leonardo began songwriting, recording, and touring. After graduating from the University of South Florida with his Music Education degree, Leonardo worked as a music teacher and continued developing his worship leading and concert ministry in various churches around the U.S. and Latin America.
In 2006, Lamon Records released his self-title album “Leonardo” which won the Gospel Music Association DOVE AWARD for “Spanish Language Album of the Year.” This catapulted Leonardo to a national stage. Four songs from the recording land the top spots in Latin Christian Radio in the U.S. and abroad.
In 2007, Leonardo is featured in Integrity Music’s “Gotta Have It” series and Max Lucado’s “3:16 The Numbers of Hope” CD (Spanish version by 3:16 Media). His “Paoli Award” nominated music video “Dejala Salir” begins to be aired regularly in the Gospel Music Channel.
In 2008, Leonardo is invited to be a presenter at the nationally televised Dove Award Live show at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, TN, where he presents TobyMac with the award for “Video of the Year.”
In 2009, and after a series of mission trips, which impacted his life, Leonardo has now released his first English CD titled “Hope.” With every song, he wishes to bring a word of encouragement to the hopeless and to let them know that God is with them and that even in the darkest valley, “Hope is coming to you….”
Leonardo serves as Student Worship minister at Idlewild Baptist Church in Tampa, along with his beautiful wife Doreen and his little princess Melody Joy. For more information about Leonardo, go to https://www.tradebit.com or call (813) 382-4398.
