Alejandro Fernández’s Net Worth:
How much is Alejandro Fernández Net worth?
Mexican musician Alejandro Fernández has a net worth of $20 million. Alejandro sings both traditional Mexican music and Latin pop. With over 30 million albums sold worldwide, he is one of the most successful Latin music performers in history. Fernández has also received Latin Grammy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005.
Alejandro Fernández was born on April 24, 1971 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. He made his first public appearance at age five in one of his father’s performances. He is the son of renowned actor and ranchero singer Vicente Fernández. Alejandra is his sister, while Vicente Jr. and Gerardo are his elder brothers. Vicente Jr. was abducted in the late 1990s by a group of organized criminals, who chopped one of his fingers as a warning to his father, who supposedly paid a substantial ransom to have his son freed.
1992 marked the release of Fernández’s self-titled first album, which featured the songs “Brumas,” “Equivocadamente,” and “Necesito Olvidarla.” He later proceeded on a tour of the United States and Mexico. In 1993, Fernández released his second album, “Piel de Nia,” which was a big success and featured the hit singles “Cascos Ligeros” and “A La Vereda del Camino.” The next year, he published “Grandes Éxitos a la Manera de Alejandro Fernández,” a collection of his renditions of great songs by singers such as Agustn Lara, Armando Manzanero, and Luis Demetrio.
With his fourth album, “Que Seas Muy Feliz,” Fernández attained international acclaim in 1995. It launched his first global smash, “Como Quien Pierde Una Estrella.” With his 1996 album “Muy Dentro de Mi Corazón,” which won him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album, Fernández continued his popularity. It simultaneously produced the popular songs “Moo Negro,” “Nube Viajera,” and “Abrazame.”
“Me Estoy Enamorado” was Fernández’s biggest success in 1997, when he launched his sixth studio album. Significantly, the album marked a shift in his musical approach, since it was more pop-oriented than his earlier ranchera-influenced compositions. This innovative choice paid off, as the album debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Latin Albums list and remained there for 12 weeks. In addition, each of the group’s four songs – “Si T Supieras,” “En El Jardn,” “No Sé Olvidar,” and “Yo Nac Para Amarte” – topped the Billboard Hot Latin Songs list. The album earned Fernández a nomination for Best Latin Pop Performance at the Grammys.
With the release of “Mi Verdad” in 1999, Fernández returned to ranchera music. His subsequent albums included “Entre Tus Brazos,” “Orgenes,” “Un Canto de México,” “Nia Amada Ma,” “Viento A Favor,” and “De Noche: Clásicos A Mi Manera.” In 2009, Fernández released the double CD “Dos Mundos: Evolución + Tradición.” A few years later, he released the album “Confidencias,” which featured collaborations with Rod Stewart and Christina Aguilera. After a temporary break from recording, in 2017 Fernández released his 15th studio album, “Rompiendo Fronteras,” which mixed ranchera, Latin pop, and reggaeton elements. In 2020, he published “Made in Mexico.”
Collaborations within the Music Industry
Throughout his career, Fernández has collaborated with a variety of different recording artists in addition to his solo work. In 1996, he was among a group of vocalists that recorded “Puedes Llegar,” the theme song for the Atlanta Summer Olympics. A few years later, he contributed to Plácido Domingo and Patricia Kaas’ live CD “Christmas in Vienna.” Fernández and Julio Iglesias collaborated on the song “Dos Corazones, Dos Historias” in 2000. He has also collaborated with Amaia Montero, Mal, and Diego El Cigala, all of whom are prominent Spanish artists.
In 2011, Fernández toured Latin America with fellow singer Marc Anthony and recorded a rendition of “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti” with Christina Aguilera. Later, in 2015, he partnered with Alejandro Sanz on a rendition of the telenovela’s theme song, “A Que No Me Dejas.” Throughout the years, Fernández has collaborated with many different musicians, including but not limited to José Carreras, Chayanne, Joan Sebastian, Gloria Estefan, Miguel Bosé, Ednita Nazario, Nelly Furtado, Mon Laferte, and Beyoncé.
In addition to his musical career, Fernández has also performed in films. In 2004, he portrayed the Mexican rebel Emiliano Zapata in the film “Zapata” by Alfonso Arau. It was reportedly the most costly film ever made in Mexico. The United States premiere of “Zapata” took place at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Fernández has two children with his wife, the Colombian model Ximena Daz. Their names are Emiliano and Valentina. In addition, he has three children from his former marriage to América Guinart: Alejandro Jr., América and Camila.
Fernández co-owns the commercial area Unicenter in Guadalajara. In addition to his family, he contributed to the building of Arena V.F.G., an indoor venue for athletic events and concerts. Fernández is a devoted supporter of the Mexican football team Atlas and excels in horseback riding and charreria.
