George Jay has finally come home to Corpus Christi and is proud to announce the release of his new CD - 'CON AMOR' containing both English and Spanish original compositions once again showing his musical diversity. BIOGRAPHIC INFORMATION Corpus Christi's native son, Jorge Alberto Andres Balli got his start in 1962 in Corpus Christi after having his name changed to George Jay which allowed him to enter the Anglo pop market. Always on the cutting edge for it's time, his highly successful band, the Rockin Ravens received national and international recognition with hits such as Cross My Heart and Me Piden. These signature songs continue to be re-recorded today by a new generation of recording artists. After 7 years in the exclusive Tejano circuit, Domingo Pena introduced George Jay to the big time night club circuit starting in Miami performing with the likes of Rick Nelson, Lou Rawls, Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Vicki Carr, KC and the Sunshine Band, plus many others. George was soon discovered by Miami insiders who signed him to an exclusive 7 year contract which would take him around the world. Recording for RCA, Peerless, Falcon and ARV International, George Jay gained recognition as a legendary performer. Doing studio work in San Antonio quickly earned George an International Globe Award that catapulted his career to a level not often seen in such a young performer. As one of the first crossover artists in both English and Spanish markets, his stage persona and uncanny impersonations soon earned him the name Mr. Entertainment. Before returning to Corpus Christi, George graced the stage with the likes of Don Ho, Sarah Vaughn, and Tony Bennet and became a staple in the Hawaiian Islands which kept him performing in the Pacific Islands for 10 years.
