Simon Cowell's New Group Features Two Latinos!


First, there was the Back Street Boys, then there was One Direction, now there is PRETTYMUCH and we couldn't be more excited.

The hot new boy band just dropped it's first single, "Would You Mind," and we have a feeling that this sexy single is going to get all the teenage girls screaming for more. The band contains singers Austin Porter (19), Brandon Arreaga (17), Edwin Honoret (18), Nick Mara (19) and Zion Kuwonu (18) who were brought together by none other than the famous (or infamous) television judge and producer, Simon Cowell.  It's no secret that Mr. Cowell has an impeccable eye for talent as all of these young men are not only fantastic singers but also have strong abilities in music and dancing.

Although we are intrigued by all of the five teen heartthrobs, we flipped when we found out two of the singers are Latino! Brandon is of Mexican descent and has been singing and dancing in his hometown Corinth, Texas since he was a child.

Edwin is a Dominican from The Bronx who has also been singing and dancing since a young age, however he was able to master his craft on his own, never once taking a dance class.

We are so pumped to see more representations of the Latinx community in the music industry and are so excited for all the performers of PRETTYMUCH. We can tell that some amazing things are in store for the band and we'll be following their incredible journey. Check out their first single below!
