Chávez bares his soul

The fame that Christian Chávez gained with the band RBD was explosive, but today the Mexican singer is more than ready to go onstage without his band members.

His first solo album, 'Almas Transparentes' (Transparent Souls), was released March 23 and the 26-year-old singer is excited about it.

"I am aware that the success we had with RBD is unbeatable. It was something out of this world and one that any artist in the world dreams of. But for me, the most important thing is to show the people my music, I know that it means starting from zero but I am ready to give it my all," said Chávez during a recent phone interview.
