Biography

Alejandro Alonso was born on August 14, 1952 in his grandfather’s house in Queretaro, Mexico. He began his musical career at a very early age. During his teen years he was the lead guitarist in a number of bands playing in pubs and popular Mexican nightclubs. He was greatly influenced by B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Larry Carlton, Santana and others. He quickly learned to play the bass, drums and some piano, as well.

In 1971 Alejandro had a born again experience and committed his life to Jesus Christ. Immediately, he began composing his own material and developing his vocal skills.

In 1972, he married artist and flautist, Pamela Alonso, and they soon had three children together: Alicia, Job and Rebekah.

From 1973-1980 he dedicated a great deal of time to using his music as an evangelistic tool performing at colleges, universities, open-air concerts and prisons.

In 1980 he moved to California and began working with Calvary Chapel and Maranatha! Music. It was with Maranatha! that he made his first recordings and becoming one of the innovators of Spanish Christian Contemporary music. He toured extensively in Latin America and took the music to war zones and areas of guerrilla activity. He also dedicated much time to Bible study and began pastoring Hispanic groups in different churches.

In 1986 he moved with his family to Chile, South America, to do missionary work. He returned to California and continued working on a variety of musical projects and pastoring churches.
