Rudy Amado Pérez (born May 17, 1958) is a Cuban-born American musician, songwriter, composer, producer, arranger, sound engineer, musical director (leading, per example, the voice of the singers on some songs) and singer, so well as entertainment entrepreneur and philanthropist, whose area of specialty is ballads (although he also worked in a variety of genres). During the last 30 years, he has produced more than 70 albums, composed over 1,000 songs (over 300 of which have been #1 or have reached to the Top 10 Charts), and has written and produced music for popular international artists such as José Feliciano, Julio Iglesias, Luis Miguel, Raúl di Blasio, Jaci Velasquez, Cristian Castro, Christina Aguilera, Michael Bolton, Luis Fonsi, Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Il Divo, and Beyoncé, among others. Having won many music awards throughout his career (Gold and Platinum records, billboard, etc.), he has been voted the most important Latin composer four times (four years) and won the title of Producer of the Decade in 2010, awarded by Billboard to the most successful producer which has held over ten years the public's preference lists. Also, he is the first Latin producer to win Billboard's Producer of the Year award four years consecutively. As an entrepreneur, Pérez owns the record labels Rudy Pérez Enterprises (RPE), and Bullseye Productions, and is a founding partner and the Chief Creative Officer of DiGa Entertainment (with who also collaborate to produce music videos with music fans). He was instrumental in the production of the premiere of the inaugural Latin Grammy Awards of 2000 and was also one of the founders of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP)'s Latin Council. In addition, Pérez (along with Desmond Child) created, in April 2013, the Pabellón de la Fama de los Compositores Latinos (in Spanish: Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame – LSHOF), in Miami Beach, to honor the most important Latino composers and to drive to continue creating Latin music.
