From 1991 to 1994, Avanzado returned to performing and touring in different regions of the country. His nationwide tour gave him a larger audience and further increased his popularity. His fame grew when his compositions "Paalam Na" (co-written with his then-girlfriend, Rachel Alejandro) and "I Will Be There for You" gained recognition.

In 1997, he recorded his seventh album, Decade After, which was released by GMA Records (formerly Infinity Music) in celebration of ten years in the music business. The album contained hits like "Wish I Could" and "To Love Again" by Sharon Cuneta. The album went platinum, establishing him as one of the top recording artists in the Philippines.

It was also during this time that he met in 1998 and married in 2001 Jessa Zaragoza, one of the Philippines' biggest selling female recording artists. Several foreign concerts followed, where they performed in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada, and the United States.

In 2000, Avanzado released the album, Here To Stay, under Star Records. It contained the hit song, "Walang Kapalit", by Rey Valera. As well as singing, Avanzado started directing concerts for other artists.

He released a historic duet album, Laging Ikaw, on Universal Records, in 2006. In 2012, Avanzado released Download, which was produced by Viva Records. All tracks on the album were original songs written by Avanzado.

Political career

In 1998, he embarked on a new career as he ran for public office and was seated in the city council of the 3rd District of Quezon City. In a span of three years, he was able to establish Quezon City as the "City of Stars", highlighting the major film networks of the film and music industry to boost tourism.

In 2007, Avanzado migrated to the United States, settling in Vallejo, California, with his wife.

In 2012, he also announced his intention to run for Vice Governor of Siquijor under the Liberal Party. In the 2013 elections, Avanzado received 25,159 votes compared to 20,472 from his opponent, Art Pacatang, from Lakas–CMD.
