A Dominican-American singer, composer, and dancer named Richard Camacho rose to stardom after passing the audition to join CNCO’s five-piece band. Following difficult audition processes for the Latin American reality show “La Banda,” the quintet for CNCO was chosen. The CNCO was founded by the top five competitors, La Banda. One of the band members, Camacho, first became interested in music at a very young age—specifically, starting at the age of three. Thanks to her performer parents—one of them was an accomplished musician and the other was a champion dancer—the need to sing, write songs, and dance came naturally and quickly became second nature. “Tan Fácil,” the debut single from The CNCO, peaked at number one on Billboard’s Latin Airplay list and at the top of iTunes’ Latin singles chart. The group’s debut studio album, “Primera Cita,” which was supported by Sony Music, earned the top spot on practically all lists of the best Latin albums. In the near future, Camacho anticipates working with “Usher” and “Chris Brown.”

Increased Fame of Richard Camacho

When they were youngsters, Richard and Yashua traveled together to the auditions for the first season of “La Banda” (The Band), a televised musical competition founded by Ricky Martin and Simon Comwell.

The internationally acclaimed musician Ricky Martin and British businessman, album producer, philanthropist, and reality TV judge Simon Phillip Comwell created the Latin American singing competition known as “La Banda.” The Band’s debut season was staged by Simon’s SYCO Entertainment, Ricky Martin, and owner of “Saban Brands” Haim Saban. The show was broadcast on the Univision TV channel.

The main reason for performing the musical was to choose a small group of incredibly gifted teenage vocalists who would collaborate to establish a legendary Latin pop band.

Yashua was ousted from the 2015 television program in the second round, whereas Richard breezed through to the “Middle Rounds.” After the penultimate leg of the Middle Rounds was cleared, Richard Camacho successfully competed to be chosen as the second member of CNCO out of a total of 12 competitors.

The grand finale began with pomp and revelry as each finalist shared the dais with Pitbull, the world’s most popular singer, who sang some of his biggest hits.

Richard won over the judges with his skillfully showcasing his ability to sing in any genre, play a few instruments proficiently, dance well, and compose music.

On December 13, 2015, the five members of CNCO—Christopher Velez (Ecuador), Richard Camacho (Dominican Republic), Joel Pimentel (Mexico), Zabdiel de Jesus (Puerto Rico), and Erick Colon (Cuba)—joined forces. “Tan Facil,” the debut single from the all-boy Latin American band CNCO (CNCO means “five” in Spanish), climbed to the top of Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

CNCO, who quickly signed a recording contract with the “Sony Music Latin” label, was heralded as the upcoming star of the Latin American music scene. At Univision’s year-end goodbye party in Times Square, New York City, which was aired across the US, the newly formed band gave a live performance.

The 2016 Univision Youth Awards ceremony saw the Latin music group walk away with several prizes. Numerous awards were given to CNCO at the 2016 Latin American Music Awards ceremony.

The CNCO tracks “So Easy,” “I Would Like,” “To Fall in Love,” and “Hundred,” to mention a few, all featured Richard Camacho’s singing.
