Lenny Santos Wins Hispanic Choice Living Legend Award

The Hispanic Choice Awards honors Lenny Santos (Len Melody) from Aventura and D’Element with the first Living legends award in their 8th annual event held the 11th of October 2011 in Philadelphia!

The Living Legend award was given to Lenny for for his contribution to modern Latin music, and his role in revolutionizing the Bachata genre.  Lenny Santos played a crucial role in originating the sound that we all know today as “Urban Bachata” as a member of the teen group Los Teenagers now better known as the group Aventura.

Living Legend Award Won By Lenny Santos

Living Legend Award

Lenny Santos, was born October 24, 1979 and grew up in the Bronx N.Y. along with his 5 siblings and Mother in a two bedroom apartment.

It was there that he developed the passion for music with members of Aventura Romeo Santos, Henry Santos and his younger brother Mike Santos also known as Max Agende.  While Lenny and Mike’s father tried to do the best in being part of the boys lives,  the boys attribute their success to their beacon of guidance. “[Mom] was the mother and father of the house,” said Lenny. “As a single mom raising six kids, she really represented.”  (source: NocheLAtina.Com)

While the group Aventura has temporarily disbanded until 2013, this has not slowed down Lenny’s hand in the music business, he has his hands in a number of projects as a producer and in 2011 along with Max Agende formed the group “D’Element”.

The Living Legend award from the Hispanic Choice Awards was presented to Lenny by Porfirio Pina of BMI

Followed by a performance by him and his new band Vena: D’Element Project.  Rumors of Vena had been circulating on twitter and face-book for a few weeks of the addition of front-man Steve Styles from the famous Bachata Group XTREME, but the official announcement was made tonight on October 11th with their first performance.

Congratulations to one of Modern bachata’s most influential characters Lenny Santos from all of us at ThatsDominican.com!
