Carlos Baute – singer, model, actor, and TV host from Venezuela.
Carlos Roberto Baute Jimenez was born on 8 March 1974 in a Venezuelan city Caracas. When he was just 13 years old, Carlos joined a band called Los Chamos. Even though the band was popular, it often changed members. Carlos was part of the last lineup. Together they released the album Con un Poco de Amor (1990). Unfortunately, the group disbanded right after the release.
After Los Chamos fell apart, Carlos decided to begin a solo career. In 1994, he released the debut studio album Orígenes. The LP wasn’t very popular. At the same time, Baute worked as a model and on TV. He landed a role in a Venezuelan soap opera "Destino de Mujer" (A Woman’s Destiny).
In 1997, Carlos recorded a new album, Origenes II Tambores. Just like the previous LP, it didn’t make it into popular charts but was rather famous in Venezuela, where it reached high spots in the local ratings.
In 1999, Baute released the LP Yo Nací Para Querer. He partially produced the album. The LP was more popular than the previous two. Carlos produced the song “Te Quise Olvidar”, which became a local hit.
