Tony Carreira (real name: António Antunes) is a Portuguese singer-songwriter internationally famous in countries like France, mostly between Portuguese emigrants. He was born in Armadouro, a little village in Pampilhosa da Serra, Centro region of Portugal. He went to Paris at 3 years old and lived there for 20 years. He started in 1991 with his debut album called "É Verão em Portugal", although with little success in audience, despite the single "Meu Herói Pequeno" being frequently played on the radio station Rádio Comercial by his friend, Carlos Ribeiro.
In 1992 another album was out with the single "Boca Marota" which was responsible for the rather good sales of the record, but not enough to avoid the cancellation of Tony's contract with his label.
After some lesser-known releases, in 1999 Tony Carreira reaches the big success with the hit single "Depois de Ti", which became platinum record. After that he becamed one of the most well-known romantic Portuguese singers, along with Marco Paulo and others.
His most recent album is "A Vida Que Eu Escolhi".
