KLTO Latino 1230

Feature Artist: CNCO

CNCO is a Latin American pop boy band formed on December 13, 2015, after becoming the winning members of the first season of the La Banda singing competition series created by Simon Cowell and produced by Ricky Martin. The band has toured with Martin and their singles, “Tan fácil” and “Quisiera”, charted well soon after their debut. They released their first album, Primera cita on August 26, 2016.

CNCO is composed of the winners of La Banda, which televised singing competition started on Univision in September, 2015. The band was formed on the finale of the show, on December 13, 2015, when they received their name, which alludes to the Spanish word for five, “cinco”, and is pronounced as it is spelled in English “C-N-C-O.” The band’s members competed individually with other contestants from Latin America and the United States before the show’s judges, Ricky Martin, Alejandro Sanz and Laura Pausini. They won a recording contract with Sony Music Latin and rapper Wisin was scheduled to produce their first album.[1] Ricky Martin became their representative.

They performed the song “Devuélveme Mi Corazón” on the finale, which included performances by Pitbull, Fifth Harmony, Wisin, and a video congratulations from One Direction. They sang it again in Times Square at Univision’s Feliz 2016 New Year’s celebration.

The band has five members. The oldest member, Christopher Velez (born November 23, 1995), from Ecuador, moved to Hightstown, New Jersey in search of a better life for his family, who he hoped to have join him there. His work, to make a living, has included shining shoes. Richard Camacho (born January 22, 1997), from the Dominican Republic, lives in New Hampshire. He has a brother, and his father is a musician and cameraman, and his mother a dancer. He writes songs, and enjoys dancing. Zabdiel De Jesus (born December 13, 1997), from Bayamón, Puerto Rico, developed an interest in singing at age twelve, singing with his church hip-hop and salsa group. Joel Pimentel (born February 28, 1999), from Mexico, lives in Hesperia, California and was inspired by his late grandfather to study theater and continue with his singing. The youngest, Erick Brian Colon (born January 3, 2001), moved from Cuba to Tampa, Florida with his mother and sister, three years prior to joining the band, where he played football, danced and participated in musical activities at school.
