Biography[edit]

Danilo Montero was born on 1 November 1962 in San Jose, Costa Rica. He runs a ministry called "Sígueme Internacional", where he is the principal director of Praise. He has recorded about 18 albums throughout his ministerial career that are part of the songs that are sung today in many Hispanic-speaking Protestant churches. He married Gloriana Diaz on April 2006. He converted to Christianity at the age of 14 when he was invited to the Great Campaign of Divine Healing that later changed its name to "Oasis de Esperanza" in Costa Rica. As he began to assist this Pentecostal church, his pastor, the Apostle Raul Vargas, realized his great potential in leadership and worship. He soon gave him the opportunity to lead the singing in his church and started generating growth in regard to music.

Currently, Danilo Montero leads the Spanish-speaking ministry of Lakewood Church founded by Marcos Witt. He has written several Christian books such as "El Abrazo del Padre" and "Generación de Adoradores." He married Gloriana Diaz on 22 April 2006 in a prestigious hotel in San José, Costa Rica, to a large number of witnesses and being present to Rev. Rey Matos, Raul Vargas, and Rev.
