He does, however, boast those acting credits. Canela began his professional acting career as Alfredo Torres on Telemundo Studios' Pecados Ajenos ("Alien Sins") in 2007. And from there, his acting career took off, and last year he landed a starring role alongside Gaby Espino in the series Mas Sabe el Diablo.
But he never lost sight of his dream of a musical career, which he began at the age of 12, and fostered during his teen years at Miami's New World School of the Arts. Finally, in November of last year, he saw those dreams realized with the release of his debut, Buscame ("Look for Me"), a very solid first effort for the up-and-coming pop star.
