The first time he presented himself in front of an audience, he never imagined that his music would make him a sough-after composer for Mexican telenovelas.
Today, three decades since his debut, Eduardo Antonio can pat himself in the back for getting his songs on the soundtracks of 'Mujer, Casos de la Vida Real,' a classic on Televisa, and the telenovelas 'Yo Amo a Juan Querendón,' 'Al Diablo con los Guapos,' 'Mi Pequeña Traviesa,' 'Gotita de Amor' and 'Rebelde,' among many other hits.
His steps throughout the television network also took him to do some acting and his name became well-known after he publicly dated the famous Cuban vedette Niurka Marcos.
Eduardo Antonio glows about that phase of his life because the controversial vedette only talks good about him -- unlike her ex boyfriends and ex husbands.
"I started my career in children's programs in Cuba. If I have to choose the moment of m y professional debut it would have to be when I sung for Celina González, the queen of folk music, in the early 80s."
Eduardo Antonio, who had a special role in Celia Cruz's video, 'La Negra Tiene Tumbao,' has been asked to write his own book.
"I am not ready to write my own memoir," he said. "But if I have to highlight some of those important moments in my career, I would say it was my performance in the Festival OTI 1996, which I won, the first time I was featured on 'Sábado Gigante,' and when I composed the anthem to México's Teletón."
