Today I invite you to get to know the talented singer and actor, Shalim Ortiz, on a more personal level. If you have heard his music then your senses have been delighted and soothed because Shalim sings from his heart and his soul. His music is very passionate and his songs are mostly about love and relationships. Shalim is the the eldest son of two amazing people, Elin Ortiz, Puerto Rican entertainer and the ravishing Charytin Goyco, singer, actress, and television presenter of Escandalo TV. Shalim has two younger siblings, Sharina and Alexander and is married to the beautiful Lesley Ann Machado, host, reporter, actress, and dancer. They got married in 2008 and have a gorgeous baby boy named Liam Michel Ortiz.
Shalim began his career at the very young age of seven in a television show called Los Angelitos. He then moved to Miami with his family and began a modeling career. A while later, Emilio Estefan signed him and the rest is history. He delivered two incredible albums in which he combined his spanish roots and mixed them with rock and ballads to achieve the perfect combination. His two albums are "Shalim" and "Cuarto Sin Puerta" which both reached gold sales in Spain and Europe. Shalim also took Broadway by storm by playing a key role in "Rocio In Spite of it All." He has also starred in many television shows including Lizzie McGuire, S-Club 7, and Cory in the House, Heroes, CSI Miami, and Cold case just to name a few.
I cannot forget to mention that Shalim was named #5 on the list of People en Español's 50 most beautiful people in 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008 and the same magazine also named him as one of the most elegant men of the year in 2008. Shalim is not only a talented artist but also a impeccable son and family man. He grew up in a very loving home and he has taken the morals that his parents taught him and used them to guide him in both his personal and professional lives.
Now that you know Shalim in a more personal level, I think it’s time for me to show you his brand new video for his song “Va a Llover” which he just released. This video tells a beautiful story of that love that is forbidden, the one that we have to fight for because you know that it's the real thing. I hope you enjoy this awesome video as much as I did.
Shalim’s passion for music and acting is the driving force that pushes him to be better each and every day. It is my opinion that Shalim has a very bright future ahead and we will be seeing a lot of him in many upcoming projects in the near future. Shalim, I think that after today you will have a lot more fans after they watch this video and fall in love with your voice. Keep up the good work and the best of luck to you and your beautiful family!
Peace and love ;-)
