Gian Marco — Singer, composer, and songwriter from Peru, holds three Latin Grammy Awards.
Gian Marco Zignago Alcover was born on 17 August 1970 in Lima, Peru. His mother Regina Alcover was a popular Peruvian actress. His father Javier Zignago was a famous composer mostly known as Joe Danova. Gian Marco was growing up in Monterrico neighborhood, where he went to school and studied music. When he was 11, the boy and his mother recorded a song together. “Papito Leñas Largas” lay the foundation for Gian Marco's music career.
A year later, Gian Marco appeared on Argentinian TV in the program Domingos Gigantes. Another year later, he was invited to sing on the show La Revista de las Saturdays en Caracas. Gian Marco amazed the audience by the unusual voice and obvious talent.
When Gian Marco turned 18, he went to Santiago to study graphic design. However, he quickly realized that his life was lacking something…music. Gian Marco started singing in local clubs and won the attention of the fans due to his special style. A year later, he returned to Lima and one of his songs was chosen for the OTI festival. At the festival, Gian Marco was noticed by Discos Independientes and offered a contract.
