Chris Perez Early life
On August 14, 1969, Chris Perez was born in San Antonio, Texas, to Mexican parents. His mother’s second marriage happened in 1978. Chris learned to play the French horn in middle school because he was interested in music from an early age. He decided to learn to play the guitar by himself after listening to some of his favorite musicians.
Chris and Selena Quintanilla had a wedding in 1992. They were together for three years after Selena’s death in 1995. In 2012 Perez wrote a book called “To Selena, with Love” about his relationship with Selena. Chris was married in 2001 to Venessa Villanueva. However, their marriage ended in divorce.
Chris formed his own rock band at the age of 17 in Los Angeles. He was offered the chance to join Tony Lares and the band. He joined the band because of his money problems, but he wasn’t interested in that kind of music. He began to write songs and work as a musical director for Shelly in 1989.
A.B. was elected to office in 1989. Quintanilla was trying to find a guitarist for Selena y Los Dinos. Chris was considered to be one of the top guitarists at that time. Abraham Quintanilla kicked him out of the band because he was in a romantic relationship with Selena Quintanilla. After they were married, he came back again. Chris’ wife died in 1995, and he worked with the band until then. There was a band that got dissolved.
Chris formed his own band, called Chris Perez, and began writing songs for their debut album. Their first album, ‘Resurrection’, won a Gramophone award for Best Latin Rock or Alternative album. Their second album, “Una Noche Mas,” ended the band’s existence in 2002.
Chris and A.B have worked together before. The musical groups Kumbia Kings and Kumbia All-Starz have Quintanilla III as a member. The Chris Perez Project was formed in 2010 with Puerto Rican singer Angel Ferrer.
Chris Perez’s personal wealth is estimated to be $1 million by the year 2022. He’s made a lot of money as a singer, writer, and also as author. He is likely to make more money from live performances and album sales because he is still in music.
