NationalityHungarian

Born was in Šalovci (Prekmurje) in Vas County of the Kingdom of Hungary. His parents were Mihály Kováts and Rozália Kováts. Although he was primarily engaged in farming, he also wrote songs, mostly religious ones. His hymnal was lost over time, as was the hymnal of his collaborator József Konkolics. János Zsupánek preserved some of their songs.

Konkolics and Kovács subsidized the publication of Zsupánek's book Mrtvecsne peszmi (Dirges) in 1910.

He died in Veliki Šalovci in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
