At twelve years of age, he became a member of the church choir. His soulful voice has played a key role in the group's success. While the group performs in both English and Spanish, their work was widely ignored by much of the English-speaking media during the early part of their career. On May 9, 2011, Santos released his first single, "You", from his upcoming solo debut album, "Formula".

The song became a number-one debut on the Hot Latin Songs and Tropical Songs chart. The Promise Songfacts reports that after seventeen years together, the quartet publicly confirmed it was breaking up for good in July 2011. "Promise," the second single from Santos' solo debut album, Formula was released to radio on September 2, 2011. The song is a duet with R&B singer Usher. ...show less
