David Civera

David Civera was born in Teruel, in 1979. David studied Computer Studies and communications but he liked music better and wanted to sing. His father traveled with him twice a month from Teruel to Valencia where David received solfa, guitar and piano classes.

He won a national TV program 'Karaoke' and participated in other TV programs (El Sur de Jerez, Las Estrellas del Parque etc.). Then, in 1996, he participated in the TV program Lluvia de Estrellas imitating Enrique Iglesias and the song Experiencia Religiosa. He failed to win this program. However he was told he had his own style.

In 1997, he took part in a new TV program Canciones de Nuestra Vida where participants covered old songs, and at the same time he released his first CD Hoy Como Ayer. However this CD failed to set the charts.

Later, he took part in other TV programs too. Eventually this led him to meet producer Alejandro Abad, who suggested he go to Eurocanción, the TV show used to choose the Eurovision Song Contest 2001 representative. He accepted and on 23 February 2001, he won the pre-Eurovision festival with his song called Dile que la quiero. At the Eurovision, which took place in Denmark, he obtained a 6th position.

He released a new CD called Dile que la quiero which achieved a greater success. A year later, in 2002, he released En Cuerpo y Alma and he sold more than 200,000 copies and the single Que la detengan eventually became the song of the summer. In 2003, he went to New Orleans and he recorded his CD The years of gangsters. It includes the popular songs Bye Bye and Rosa y espinas, recorded with David Bisbal.

In 2005, he released Perdóname a tango-inspired album leader. This year, David participated in ¡Mira quién baila! (Spanish version of Dancing with the stars). He won this program and he has raised a lot of money for the patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

In 2006 he released his album Ni el primero ni el último which contained a lot of ballad songs spiced up with a few dance songs. The first single is El orgullo y la Visa. In 2007 has published No bastará. In 2009 he released Podemos elegir. He got married on 2007 with his girlfriend. They had been together since being teenagers.
