Wilson "Rawy" Torres (born August 11, 1975 in Mayagüez) is a Puerto Rican singer, composer, and guitarist, who was a member of the boy band, Menudo.

Biography[edit]

Torres joined Menudo in 1989, replacing Ricky Martin. Torres gained teen idol status[citation needed] in Latin America when Menudo released the Los Ultimos Heroes CD. Torres also recorded a Portuguese version for his first album called "Os Ultimos Herois"

Torres and Avellanet both left Menudo in 1991, and almost immediately joined Euphoria, that had some success[citation needed] but broke up.

In 1999, Rawy went to Los Angeles, CA where he produced and recorded his first solo album called "Por si de amor se trata".

Torres then started a Bachelor's Degree in Business that was completed with honors in 2004 with a major in Marketing.

Rawy Torres joined some of his former bandmates in a reunion group that was inspired by the success of El Reencuentro, another group that was composed by six former Menudos from the early 1980s. Torres and his fellow former Menudo bandmates, including Avellanet, named their reunion group Los Ultimos Heroes.
