Anaís continues to make her dreams come true with her second album entitled "Con Todo Mi Corazón (With All My Heart)," which features the song "Tu Amor No Es Garantía" as its first single. Written by Mario Pupparo and Juanjo Novaira, it is a song in which Anaís shows off her full vocal range in her excellent interpretation of this lovely ballad.
"Con Todo Mi Corazón" goes on sale simultaneously in the United States and Puerto Rico on April 3, 2007. Regarding her new album, Anaís says she is very happy with the results and adds, "I'm very excited about this album because I've been involved with everything, especially with regard to selecting the songs, all of which I really like. I think that most young people are going to identify with this album."
"Con Todo Mi Corazón" is a versatile album with a whole lot of variety, featuring musical fusions of tropical music, ballads, pop, and regional Mexican music, all of which benefit from the fresh, bold texture of her interpretation. The album contains nine songs, most of which are ballads replete with heartfelt emotion. Then there are two faster songs, including: "Vivir" by Sergio George and Jorge Luis Piloto, a catchy, upbeat tune. With the song "Sexy Mama," Anaís surprises her listeners with her songwriting debut as the writer of this song, a contagious track that will surely be heard in all the clubs around the country.
Anaís has put her heart and soul into this album, staying involved throughout the entire process. "I'm happy with the results of the album, I was part of everything and to top it off, I took the leap and wrote my own song."
Anaís gives us her heart and the very best of herself thanks to renowned producer-composer and six-time Latin GRAMMY® winner Sergio George. "Con Todo Mi Corazón, as the title says, offers a glimpse into the soul of this singer from The Bronx, allowing her listeners to witness her life and emotions in each one of the songs," says Sergio George.
The songs on the record are: "Tu Amor No Es Garantía," "Solo Mio," "Quiero Amanecer Con Alguien," "Necesidad," "Mi Amor Por Ti," "Fue Un Placer," "Reencuentro," "Vivir," and "Sexy Mama," plus two bonus tracks: a duranguense version of "Tu Amor No Es Garantía" with the group Montez de Durango and a merengue version of "Reencuentro" with the participation of renowned Dominican singers Sergio Vargas and Milly Quezada.
Born on one June 22 in the Dominican Republic and a resident of The Bronx since she was 8 years old, Anaís began singing at a very early age, captivating audiences with her sweet accent. A key figure who sparked her dream of becoming a professional singer was a music teacher who led a school chorus, Los Cumbiancheros, where Anaís learned the basics of music and discipline. It was during this time that her passion for musical performance emerged, upon the realization that this was what she really wanted to do in her future. It was a very productive, happy period for Anaís, because the talented young artists of the group were going to different schools to perform. It was a versatile group that could take on tropical music, ballads in the Spanish and English language, salsa and plena, and the most typical songs and catchiest rhythms of Puerto Rico. "The group was quite large," remembers Anaís, who was ranked as soprano number one and two.
Anaís has participated in important international events like the tribute dinner in honor of José José in November 2005, hosted by the Latin Recording Academy in Los Angeles, CA, where she sang the song "Si Me Dejas Ahora."
Notably, Anaís was also one of the singers participating in the official Univisión song for the 2006 World Cup, entitled "Arriba, Arriba" and produced under Sergio George. She sang alongside artists of the caliber of Ana Bárbara, Pablo Montero, and Mariana Seoane.
Her first album, "Así Soy Yo," blazed a trail in the music industry and earned her recognition on obtaining various nominations, such as the Latin GRAMMY award in the "Best Pop Album" category, and two Premio Lo Nuestro nominations for Best New Artist of the Year and Best Pop Album. This year, she won four Billboard Award nominations for Best Pop Album of the Year – New Artist, and Latin Pop Airplay, Song of the Year, Female Artist for "Lo Que Son Las Cosas," Latin Pop Airplay, Song of the Year, New Artist for "Lo Que Son Las Cosas," and Tropical Airplay Song of the Year, again for the tropical version of "Lo Que Son Las Cosas," just to name a few.
Anaís knows that the best is yet to come, but in the meantime, she will be busily promoting her most recent album, "Con Todo Mi Corazón."
