Dominican crooner El Torito has been cranking out the hits since his days in the early-'90s group Los Toros Band. Now a solo act, he commands the stage with his striking vocals and swagged-out style, never failing down the house with songs like "Me Duele La Cabeza" and "Lo Que Tiene Ella". The singer mixes the sounds of merengue, bachata, and bolero to create his signature music, and his diverse fanbase can hear it all come to life on his high-energy tours.
El Torito, a.k.a. Hector Acosta, began singing in his church choir at an early age. In his early twenties he honed his craft performing with a variety of music groups before finally settling with the Los Toros Band in 1990. He served as the group's lead singer for 15 years before deciding to pursue a solo career with his band Hector Acosta and his Orchestra. Their debut album Sigo Siendo Yo featured five hit singles that were in heavy rotation on Dominican airwaves, and the group earned three Sovereign Awards (equivalent to the US Grammy) for their incredible musicianship and merengue style. His second album Half Half dabbled in the reggaeton genre, and he toured throughout the Dominican Republic in support of the release, earning thousands of fans with his new sound. Since then he's adopted the nickname El Torito, released three more acclaimed albums, and won five more Sovereign Awards including The Grand Sovereign -- the highest honor a Dominican artist can receive. Not only is he known for his amazing collection of hits, but he has also been recognized for his charitable work throughout his hometown of Bonao. One of the biggest stars in the Dominican Republic, El Torito always delivers hit-filled sets on his exciting tours.
