Bobby Ross Avila

Bobby Ross Avila was a pop singer from the early 90's. He is the son of Bobby Ross Avila Sr. and has a brother, Izzy. Bobby has recorded and released numerous singles.
In 1989, Bobby released his self-titled debut album on RCA Records. It is unknown how or if the album ever charted.
The first single, "Music Man" peaked at #91 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 4 weeks.
Three more singles, "Merry Go Round," "Be Mine," and "I Won't Let You Go" were also released, but it's unknown how or if they ever charted at all.
In 1990, Bobby released the single, "I'm Your Puppet." He was nominated for "Favorite New Recording Artist" at the 12th annual Young Artists Awards.
In 1993, Bobby released his sophomore album, "My Destiny" on Perspective Records. It is unknown how or if the album ever charted.
His only well-known hit song to date, "La La Love" peaked at #86 on the Billboard Hot 100, #59 on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart, #27 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, and #93 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 2 weeks.
In 1994, Bobby released his third album, "Que Pasa (What's Up?)" on New Prodigal Records, which didn't appear to make the Billboard charts.
The single, "What's Up? Que Pasa" was released, but it's unknown how or if the single ever made the charts.
In 1995, Bobby released his fourth album, "Into My Life" on Benson Records, which didn't appear to chart at all.
The single, "Let's Stay Together" was released a promo, but didn't chart. After that, it seemed that Bobby faded into obscurity.

Today, he still works in the music business with his brother, IZ Avila and they both go under the name "The Avila Brothers." They have written and produced music for artists such as Usher, Aretha Franklin, Yolanda Adams, Janet Jackson, and Mya.
In 2007, The Avila Brothers became the first American Latinos to received two Grammy Awards in the Urban\R&B category for their work on Chaka Khan's song, "Funk This." The brothers have also released an album of their own, "The Mood: Soundsational" on their own record label, ABX Records.
