Voltio Rocks the House at the Third Annual Fox Latin Sports Awards

Fresh From a Smash Performance at This Year's Latin Grammy Awards, the Critically Acclaimed Latin Urban Artist, Voltio, Performs a Medley of His Hits at the Fox Latin Sports Awards in Miami


Voltio commanded the audience's attention when the Latin Hip-Hop star appeared on stage at Miami Beach's Jackie Gleason Theater on Monday, December 5th. Performing a medley of his hits, "Bumper," and "Chulin," Voltio captivated the audience. To the delight of all in attendance, his nimble flow, often compared to the legendary emcee Nas, left the audience with a lasting thought -- There's a new talented kid on the block.

In January, Fox Sports will air in the United States on Fox Sports en Espanol and throughout the Spanish-speaking Americas on Fox Sports Latin America.

Starting Friday, December 2, the weekend was an action-packed event. From a celebrity Golf Tournament to benefit "The Ganley Foundation" to private parties, multiple receptions and the main event, The Fox Latin Sports Awards, Voltio spent the entire weekend with his fans.

Voltio has been busy putting the final touches on his new self-titled studio album. "Voltio" will be in stores on December 27, 2005.

The 28-year-old Latin Urban artist, Julio Voltio, who has already sold 200,000 albums to date under the independent record company, White Lion, recently found a home at Sony BMG.

"Voltage AC," released under White Lion in December of last year, debuted in the Top 5 on the Latin Soundscan chart and remained in the Top 20 for the first two months. Voltio's approachable nature and artistic versatility have turned him into one of the genre's frontrunners. "It's amazing to me that 50,000 copies were sold in Japan," he says. "I've traveled to Spain, the Dominican Republic, Chile, Venezuela, and all these countries." In response to the overwhelming demand and rapid success of this independent release, Voltio has joined forces with White Lion/Sony Norte'/Sony Urban/Epic Records to release his major label, self-titled, debut, "Voltio" this December.

The new album will include a few fan-favorite songs from his highly successful independent release, "Voltage A/C" and a slew of new tracks including "Chulin," and the "Chulin Remix" featuring Three 6 Mafia. Sexy songs like "El Bonbon" and "Dame de Eso" (Gimme That) promise to spice up dance floors across the nation while the contemplative "Por Un Dedo" (By A Finger) explores the notion of all the catastrophes that could transpire because of one misstep.
