Plácido Domingo Jr. (born 1965), also known as Plácido and Plácido Jr., is a Mexican singer, songwriter, composer, and record producer.

He was born in Mexico City, son of tenor and philanthropist Plácido Domingo. From an early age he was exposed to the operatic world and developed a passion for music.

He has written songs for artists like Michael Bolton, Riccardo Cocciante, Vanessa Williams, Sarah Brightman, Jose Carreras, Luciano Pavarotti, Leona Mitchell, Diana Ross, Alejandro Fernández, Tony Bennett, and Plácido Domingo.

He participated in the album Amore Infinito (released 2009) as executive producer, composer and singer. The album included verses by Pope John Paul II, performed by his father, which reached the top chart on Billboard Magazine's Top Classical Crossover Albums.

In 2010, together with SonicProjects Records, Plácido Domingo Jr. made his international debut as a performer, collaborating with Grammy award winner producer/engineer Juan Cristóbal Losada, with whom he created a Christmas EP called Songs for Christmas/Canciones de Navidad. The EP was released on November 9, 2010, one day before his worldwide debut at the "Person of the Year" ceremony at the Latin Grammy Awards of 2010. It includes a never before released Spanish adaptation by Plácido Domingo Jr. and Juan Cristóbal Losada of "My Grown-Up Christmas List" by David Foster and Linda Thompson, and a new version of the Puerto Rican Christmas classic "Villancico Yaucano".
