Growing up in Puerto Rico, Bernie Williams discovered his love for baseball and music at the age of eight. The young student-athlete excelled in both pursuits, attending a famous performing arts school at 13 and signing a contract with the New York Yankees at 17. In his 16-year career with the Yankees, Williams was a four-time World Series Champion and a five-time All Star. Throughout his Yankees years, his passion for music never waned.
In 2003, he released his first album, The Journey Within, which featured fusions of jazz, rock and the tropical rhythms of his heritage. It was met with strong critical praise and instant chart success. Williams raised his game further with his second album, Moving Forward, featuring guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen, Jon Secada, Dave Koz, and an all-star cast of studio musicians. The album was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Album.
