Axel – Argentinian singer and songwriter
Axel’s full name is Axel Fernando Witteveen. He was born on 1 January 1977 in Rafael Calzada, near Buenos Aires. The artist became interested in music in early childhood. His parents were happy with such a hobby and paid for private piano lessons for Axel and two of his brothers. Parents also approved Axel’s studying in a Conservatory Julian Aguirre of Argentina. Witteveen enrolled when he was eight years old but later quit in order to keep up with his high school studies. After graduating from high school, Axel returned to the conservatory.
Even though Axel’s parents supported his hobby, they didn’t expect that the young man would choose singing as a profession. So when Axel declared his plans, parents were against them. However, the aspiring singer insisted on following his dream and went to Buenos Aires to do it.
Upon arrival, Axel decided to test his acting skills. He landed a role in a soap opera on TV Canal 9. The future singer played a waiter in a bar. Later, Axel decided to move to the touristic towns in order to work in hotel clubs. However, performing at the clubs was far from what Axel dreamed about.
