Didier Hernández Fernández (born July 18, 1979 in Havana) is a Cuban singer who was a member of the well known boy band, Menudo. He was one of the last members of the group to join while the band was still named "Menudo". He was the second member of Cuban descent, after Ashley Ruiz (who he replaced).

Musical career[edit]

Didier Hernández was chosen as a member of Menudo in 1995; two years later, Edgardo Díaz had sold the band's original name and renamed it MDO. Bandmates Were Abel Talamántez, Alexis Grullón, Edgar Antonio "Anthony" Galindo, Daniel René, Pablo Portillo, Troy Tuminelli and Caleb Avilés.

During his seven years as a member of MDO, Hernández became a teen idol in Puerto Rico and across Latin America. He visited Europe and Asia, a total of 39 Countries around the world becoming a known artist among teenage Hispanic females in the United States. Hernández recorded a total of seven CDs during this period, including Tiempo de Amar ("Time to Fall in Love"), MDO, Un Poco Más ("A Little More"), Subir Al Cielo (which was also recorded in English as Little Piece of Heaven), and a Greatest-Hits CD.

Hernández continued with his singing career, trying to become a solo singer. After one year of music production he opened up a Record Label called ("DGMUSIC") which was distributed by Sony/BMG, through Avalon and, on August 23, 2005, his first solo CD, titled Destino ("Destiny"), was released. That same day, he announced a deal with American retail chain Wal-Mart, where he would hold "sign and greet" sessions with fans that bought his CD. His first solo album (Destino) allowed Didier to touch basis with those fans that always supported his music and introduced them to the new and fresh sound of this Cuban teen idol. The first single "Diva" was released followed by "Te Juro Amor" (I Swear To You My Love), finishing a promo tour in May 2006.
