Tony Carreira (born António Manuel Mateus Antunes on December 30, 1963) is a Portuguese musician. Born in the small rural locality of Armadouro, Pampilhosa da Serra, he moved to Paris at age 10 with his emigrant parents.[1] He lived there for 20 years. Carreira has had several hits since 1991, becoming during the 2000s one of the most renowned and best-selling popular singers in his home country. Tony Carreira sold out concerts in one of the largest venues in Portugal, the Pavilhão Atlântico in Lisbon, and also at the Olympia in Paris.[citation needed]

O Homem Que Sou had been certified seven times platinum in Portugal. Until 2009 he has sold over 700,000 records in Portugal.[citation needed]

In August 2008, the Portuguese Society of Authors (SPA) announced that it had received several complaints about possible plagiarism by Tony Carreira. The complaints related to three songs: "Depois de Ti (Mais Nada)", "Ai Destino, Ai Destino" and "Leva-me ao Céu". SPA concluded that the song "Depois de Ti (Mais Nada)", is an apparent unauthorized copy of the song "Después de Ti Qué?", made popular by Christian Castro. No action was taken however because SPA had not received an official complaint from the rights owners, who are represented by Universal Music Publishing. According to Universal Music the matter was "under investigation" (as of 2008). [1]

Nos fiançailles France/Portugal includes duets with several french artists such as Michel Sardou or Serge Lama.

His most recent album, Sempre, was released in 2014.

Tony Carreira is the father of pop singers David Carreira and Mickael Carreira.
