Born in Long Island, NY, Draco Cornelius Rosa was raised surrounded by an eclectic mélange of musical tastes: from his mother’s affinity to the rock of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Who and the funk-ridden R&B of the seventies, to his father’s propensity toward salsa—not just any salsa, but, as Rosa puts it, “the dark, aggressive kind.” At a young age, his family moved him to Puerto Rico, where he became a member of the increasingly popular band Menudo.
Wanting to extend the reach of his talents into other media, Rosa moved to Los Angeles. A solo contract with Sony Latin in 1993 enabled him to record in Spain the first of his highly celebrated Spanish-language solo albums, Frío. In between solo projects, Draco worked with Ricky Martin, Ednita Nazario and Julio Iglesias among other celebrated artists. He is the creator of unforgettable hits such as “A Medio Vivir”, “María,” “Vuelve”, “La Copa De La Vida”, “Livin’ La Vida Loca”, “She Bangs”, “Más Grande Que Grande”, and many more.
