Known as El Embajador del Romanticismo (Romanticism Ambassador) and El Lujo de Mexico (Mexico's Luxury), his live debut took place in January 1946 in Ciudad Juarez. After moving to Mexico City, Marco Antonio Muñiz teamed up with Juan Neri and Héctor González forming a successful threesome called Los Tres Ases. In 1960, he left the popular trio to pursue a solo career, achieving memorable moments while singing with Javier Solis, Maria Felix, Pedro Vargas, and Lola Beltran among other artists, having the opportunity to deliver his romantic ballads on the most important stages around the world, including New York's Madison Square Garden and Paris' Olympia. During five decades, Marco Antonio Muñiz toured worldwide and released more than 60 records. His legacy has been preserved by his sons Jorge Muñiz, singer and a TV host affectionally known as El Coque, and Antonio Carlos Muñiz.
Marco Antonio Muñiz (born March 3, 1933) is a singer from Jalisco, Mexico. Known all over Latin America, Muñiz declared publicly and in most countries he had visited, that Puerto Rico is his second country, and many Puerto Ricans consider him to be an "honorary Puerto Rican". A few Puerto Rican song standards (such as the danza "Alondras en el bosque") have Muñiz as their definitive interpreter. He also acted in Sinful.
Early life and career 
Muñiz was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. From an early age, he showed musical talent, specifically as a romantic singer.
Muñiz's first album was a tribute to singers of other eras. It was titled "Aquellas Canciones!" ("Those Songs!"), and it was released in 1956. That was the first of close to 80 albums, all of which he recorded under the BMG or RCA Internacional labels.
Career in the 60s 
In 1965, he began an uninterrupted streak of years traveling to Puerto Rico's Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan around Christmas, to offer concerts there (at one time, Muñiz claimed he was such a regular at the hotel that could figure out his way out of any of the hotel's suites and out of the facility blindfolded). This lasted close to thirty years. Muñiz has since returned for yearly shows at the Caribe Hilton, this time around Mother's Day.
Among the albums recorded by Muñiz are Marco Antonio Muñiz con Los Trovadores del Caribe (Marco Antonio Muñiz with Los Trovadores del Caribe) which was his fourth album, Mi Novia es Guadalajara! (Guadalajara is my Girlfriend!), which was his fifth, Salsa a la Manera de... (Salsa, Marco Antonio's Way..., which represented his first foray into the Salsa rhythm), 1991's Mi Borinquen Querido (My Dear Borinquen, where he paid homage to Puerto Rican folklore music), a 1993 dedication to Pedro Infante, and a 1997 album and CD which was dedicated to José Alfredo Jiménez.
His extensive solo career includes top 40 hit chart singles all over Latin America such as "Voy a Cambiar Mi Corazon" by singer/composer Miguel Poventud. He is an international artist with fans in Brasil and Poland.
His son, Jorge "Coque" Muñiz is also a Mexican entertainment personality, as a show host and comedian at various Televisa television shows.
