Angelo Garcia

Singer/Song writer for Menudo

Angelo Garcia was a member of Puerto Rican band Menudo from 1988 to 1991. After two years with Menudo, Angelo signed with World Wide Entertaiment, under the direction of record executive Darrin McGillis.

On McGillis records, he released "Don't keep me holding on" produced and written by Lewis Mertinez of Expose fame. The 12" skyrocketed in dance clubs everywhere for it's Hard Hittin Mixes by famed producer Chicago's Bad Boy Bill. In 1992, McGillis Records sold Angelo's recording contract to Warner Bros.

In his late teens, he put his recording career on hold after he moved to Florida and the University of Central Florida, where he earned a Communications degree.

Although he is widely remembered for his days in Menudo, and his solo career with McGillis Records, Angelo's dedication to dance and fitness model. In 2004, Angelo opened a new upscale female-only gym in Miami Beach, Florida, called "Elements For Women". Angelo presently resides in Miami Beach and New York City.

Over the last years Angelo has written a number of original songs in both Spanish an English. During a 2005 reunion tour of former Menudo menbers Sergio Blass, Angelo Garcia, Rawy Torres, and Robert Avellanet performing under the name "Los Ultimos Heroes", Angelo was a smash hit with live and television audiences and was offered solo recording contracts overseas. In order to preserve his artistic independence and avoid a cliched reworking of the Menudo sound, Angelo instead decided to record an album himself, using his own music.
