The King of Hearts: Alice's Wonderland Bakery

Multiple GRAMMY® Award winner Jon Secada voices the King of Hearts in “Alice’s Wonderland Bakery,” Disney Junior’s fantastical new animated series inspired by the world of “Alice in Wonderland.”

Celebrated for his soulful and melodic voice, Secada is an international superstar with a career spanning over two decades, three GRAMMY Awards, 20 million albums sold and starring roles on Broadway.

Secada’s career skyrocketed in 1991 with the release of his self-titled debut album “Jon Secada” (SBK/EMI), which sold over six million copies worldwide, went triple platinum in the U.S. and reached #15 on Billboard’s Pop album chart. The Spanish-language version of the album, “Otro Dia Mas Sin Verte” (EMI-Latin), went on to become the #1 Latin album of 1992 and earned him his first GRAMMY Award, for Best Latin Pop Album. Three more Top 20 Billboard hits followed from the album, including “Angel,” “I’m Free” and “Do You Believe in Us.” His success continued in 1994 with the platinum-selling release of his second album “Heart, Soul and Voice” (EMI), which garnered another Top 10 Billboard hit, “If You Go,” as well as his third album, “Amor,” for which he earned a second GRAMMY for Best Latin Pop Performance. In addition to his own successful albums, Secada has collaborated with top recording artists, from Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Estefan to Ricky Martin and Luciano Pavarotti.

As of October 2021, Jon Secada and multi-GRAMMY award winner Gonzalo Rubalcaba were nominated for a Latin GRAMMY for their collaboration on “SOLOS,” a musical journey through revamped renditions of classic boleros, composed and sung by artists of Cuban roots and influence.

He has appeared on Broadway starring as Danny Zuko in “Grease” and as the Emcee in “Cabaret.” He returned to the stage in 2017, bringing to life a heartfelt tribute to Beny Moré, one of Cuba’s most beloved icons.
