Carlos Roberto Baute Jiménez (born March 8, 1974 in Caracas, Venezuela), best known simply as Carlos Baute, is a Venezuelan singer and television host.[1] His music is mostly in the Latin pop genre, with some ballads and Bachata.

Early life[edit]

He is the son of Alfonso Baute and Clara Jiménez and he is of Spanish (his father is from Tenerife and his maternal great-grandparents are from Galicia), Cuban (his maternal grandmother) and Venezuelan descent.


At age 13, he joined Los Chamos, which released an album entitled "Con un poco de Amor" in 1990. He worked as a model and released his first solo album entitled "Orígenes I" in 1994. He acted in the Venezuelan telenovela, "Destino de Mujer" (1997), as Pedro José, a swimming instructor.

With the album "Yo nací para querer..." (1999), he moved to Spain and had much success with all his albums. He acted in the television series "Aladinna" (TVE), "Mis Adorables Vecinos" (Antena 3) and was the host of "Gala Miss España", "Gala IB3", "Gala Fin de Año de TVE1".

Baute has released six albums, including a greatest hits album. In 2008, he released De Mi Puño Y Letra, which included "Colgando En Tus Manos". He released two versions, one solo and one with Marta Sánchez. The duet rose to the top of the charts in many Spanish-speaking countries worldwide.

Although well known in many Hispanic countries, he has not crossed over into many other markets.

In October 2012, he released a duet with Laura Pausini[2] of the song "Las cosas que no me espero".

He now lives in Spain[3] and has Spanish citizenship.

By March 2014, during the Venezuelan riots, he released a music video asking for “Respect” amongst citizens of different political sides. In the video,"Que tu voz sea mi voz", Baute appears with the national flag painted on his face.[4]

Personal life[edit]

By June 2012 Carlos Baute married the Venezuelan model Astrid Klisans.[5]
