With more than three decades of his career Ricardo Montaner is one of the most successful Latin American artists. In the mid-1980s, she was followed by the work of Tan enamorados, followed by endless songs, such as Déjame llorar, La cima del cielo, Castillo azul and Bésame, which placed it as an indisputable reference to romantic music.
What the artist could not imagine would be the glory of God, one of the most important subjects that he made with his daughter Evaluna Montaner five years ago. The subject of the video clip is most played on the YouTube channel and has over 239 million views so far. This song and other similar commentary motivated Montaner's alleged decision to sing exclusively Christian music. In contacting the DUTY, the Argentine-Venezuelan clarifies that personal experience led him to God twenty-five years ago, but denies that he renounces the Christian world known in the world.
How was your career beginning?
As a teenager in Maracaibo (Venezuela), in a group in the church, I played drums at that time. Sometimes I go alone with my guitar to sing at a restaurant, but I always love music. For a day I missed the soloist and placed it in place. These were the beginnings. Then I played the doors until I picked up the record, and from there all the time.

What led the Christianity?
My wife was a Christian because she was a little girl and helped me a lot. But I would say that 25 years ago in Uruguay was the most important moment when I gave my life to God while I was visiting a sick child in a hospital. She counted her classes and her parents asked me to pray for her. I never publicly prayed for a person's health, but I knew I was praying for what came out of my soul. And it seems that God has been listening to me because the child has lived for many years. This experience has crushed me. Since then I have been closer to God.
Will you leave the secular music?
This question was asked to think of singing in the Christian genre, but I did not pass on the Christian musical genre.

My music has not changed. Love is still at the heart of my songs.
