Since their inception two years ago, the Latin GRAMMY nominated pop phenomenon has conquered the music industry as one of the most important hit-making groups today. Comprised of five young Latinos: Christopher (Ecuador), Erick Brian (Cuba), Joel (Mexico), Richard (Dominican Republic) and Zabdiel (Puerto Rico), the group emerged from Univision's musical competition La Banda, which was executive-produced by Simon Cowell's SYCO Entertainment, the global icon Ricky Martin, Univisión Communications Inc., and Haim Saban's Saban Brands.
CNCO's first album "Primera Cita" quickly became a global success and was certified Diamond, Platinum, and Gold in the United States, Latin America, and Europe. Throughout their short but incredible career, the group has garnered numerous awards including six Latin American Music Awards, five Premios Juventud, three Premios Tu Mundo, three Latin Billboard Awards, three Premio Lo Nuestro Awards, one Kids Choice Award, one Teen Choice Award and one iHeartRadio Music Award.
