Andy Russell (born Andrés Rabago Pérez) was a native Los Angeleno who grew up in a bilingual home with immigrant parent. He loved listening to popular music on the family radio, especially big band crooners like Bing Crosby, Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey and his hero Dick Powell. He became the neighborhood music authority, and no one was surprised when he went before the microphone to earn his daily bread. He was one of first popular bilingual acts to hit the American airwaves, and influence many other Latin and Anglo artists to perform in both English and Spanish. His hits include classics like “Besame Mucho”, “Amor”, and “What a Difference a Day Makes”. Andy traveled throughout Central and South America, and had a nine year run on Argentine TV.
