In 2009, after 25 years of a very successful and blessed career in the main stream music industry, Javier Galvan, lead singer, owner and founder of the musical group, Fama, decided to retire to spend more time with his family and pursue a calling to serve the Lord as a full time Christian minister. His ministry work took him throughout the United States, Mexico, Central America and South America. Thanks to his loving wife, Norma, Javier was able to pursue his passion and serve the Lord while raising his family. In these past five years, Javier was able to produce new inspirational music and videos while spreading the Word and helping others.
After a lot of prayer and tugging of his heart by God, Galvan decided to return to the mainstream music industry with a renewed passion and mission. He has not left the ministry by any means, but feels that coming out of retirement is an extension of the ministry God has given him. He was quoted in a recent interview that he is very excited about his new CD, the tour and the new band.
“I’ll tell you what, the greatest gift God has given me is that time serving Him, enjoying my wife and my children,” said Galvan. “It has been a tremendous journey. The crazy thing is…I was busier when I was retired than when I was with Fama. Those five years flew by very quickly,”
Javier is very excited that he has signed with a new record label from Houston named 2911 Global Entertainment. He is ready to hit the road and share the LOVE of GOD with his fans again.
The new album, Simplemente Mi Historia, will be released on March 11th and is a collection of songs that tells an inspirational story of Galvan’s life and the lives of the people he loves. He wrote all 12 songs on the album and says the true master and inspiration of the songs, is God.
The first single “La Mujer” is duo with a new Latin artist named Manny D. The song includes a music video, honoring the lives of women.
“I wrote this song for every woman that walks this earth and has ever existed in it,” said Galvan. “For all the grandmothers, mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc.”
