Jeremy grew up in a large Puerto Rican family in Queens, New York, and got his start singing at neighborhood block parties. At 10 years old, his family moved to Florida and Jeremy began participating in choir at church and school. He later became a worship leader and started gaining traction in the local music scene. At 21, he got the opportunity to open for Andrea Bocelli in Germany and finally felt his career taking off. However, later that year Jeremy made the biggest decision of his life and decided to take over guardianship of his niece, since he was the most fit to care for her. He spent the next seven years solely focused on being a dad, but now that his daughter is 18, Jeremy is ready to get back to music.
