Marco Antonio Solís Sosa (born December 29, 1959) is a Mexican musician, composer, and record producer.[1][2]

Born and raised in Ario de Rosales, Michoacán, Mexico, Solís began his musical career at the age of six, performing part of Los Hermanitos Solís. In 1975 he co-founded Los Bukis, of which he was the lead vocalist and guitarist. The band split up after nearly two decades of success, with Solís pursuing a solo career. Solís released his first solo album, En Pleno Vuelo in 1996 by Fonovisa Records.

Solís has been awarded five Latin Grammy Awards, two Lo Nuestro Awards, has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and has been inducted into the Billboard Latin Music Hall of Fame.[3]

Early life and career[edit]

Marco Antonio Solís began performing at age 6 as part of Los Hermanitos Solís, with cousin, Joel Solís. In the mid-1970s he formed "Los Bukis" with whom he achieved success in Mexico, Central America, South America, and the United States. As lead singer and chief songwriter of Los Bukis, Solís became known in the industry for outside writing and producing for popular singers such as Marisela and Rocío Dúrcal. In 1995, after almost 20 years of working with the group, he decided to pursue a solo career.

As a solo artist he has remained popular in his native Mexico[4] as well throughout Latin America and Spain, and the United States[5][6] with more than thirty entries on Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks chart, including multiple number one hits. He has worked with Olga Tañón, Ana Bárbara, and most recently Enrique Iglesias and Anaís, among others. On August 5, 2010, Solís received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Marco Antonio Solís appeared as a vocal coach in the third season of La Voz... México and won the competition. He went on tour to promote his album Gracias Por Estar Aqui a few weeks after. His album, “Gracias Por Estar Aquí”, was released October 22, 2013 and debuted at #1 in Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Solís was married to Beatriz Adriana, a Mexican singer, with whom he had a daughter, also named Beatriz Adriana (but performs under the name Beatriz Solís). The couple later divorced, and Solís is now married to Cristian Salas, whom he met when he was with Los Bukis. She was his main love interest in the music video for A Aquella. He has two daughters with his wife, Alison and Marla, and became a grandfather when his daughter Beatriz gave birth to a son, Leonardo. He also has a son, Marco Antonio Solís Jr. who, though little else is known about him, made headlines when he got married. He dated Marisela in the 80s before meeting Cristian.[8][9][10][11]
