February 2nd, 2022 – Latin American Christian rapper and singer, WAGNER J, has released a new single titled Tu Santo Manto. The new release which has gotten over half a million streams on Spotify in less than a month was written while the artist mourned the death of his mother. Tu Santo Manto has proven to be so much of a success that even the talented Dominican Christian singer and songwriter, Ariel Kelly, hopped on a remix of the tune with WAGNER J.
Wagner Jesus Ortiz Espiritu better known as WAGNER J “Just a Human Being” was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on June 10th, 1985 to Juan de Jesus Ortiz Fabian and Luz Maria Espiritu Ortiz de Ortiz. Developing a passion for music at the tender age of 13, WAGNER J began rapping, improvising, and competing with his schoolmates and soon earned the respect of all his contemporaries for his great performance and lyrical dexterity.
Raised in a home where both parents were entrepreneurs; his mother running a cosmetic line, while his father worked in the textile and clothing industry, WAGNER J soon became quite the entrepreneur himself. He finished high school at 16 and began Law School at 17 at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo but had to leave college when his wife got pregnant so he could take better care of his family.
After also losing his job as a high school maths teacher, WAGNER J’s uncle, Juan Carlos Espiritu, put up some cash and set up a recording studio for the upcoming artist. Together with his childhood friend and music partner Frank E Gomez, the duo recorded their songs and also made money recording music for other artists.
Having come a long way from quitting college to getting a visa and emigrating to the US where he founded many successful business ventures, WAGNER J could not fill the void in his spirit until he returned to his true passion which is creating beautiful and harmonious music. Currently, WAGNER J has his trademark – WAGNER J “Just a Human Being,” has launched his line of footwear “WAGNER J Shoes,” and is also working on his first complete album as a soloist tilted Ocasiones (My Life In Songs).
