ABC’s Good Morning America and Mario Lopez reveal the New MENUDO and premiere the group’s first single “Mi Amore”

New York, NY – March 20, 2023. Less than nine months after announcing plans to rebuild the iconic MENUDO boy band, Mario Lopez introduced the world to the five new stars to represent this generation’s Latino supergroup. Alejandro Querales (age 15), Andres Emilio (age 14), Gabriel Rossell (age 13), Ezra Gilmore (age 12), and Nicolas Calero (age 10) performed their debut single “Mi Amore” LIVE on ABC’s Good Morning America. The group’s music video editorial premiered simultaneously on Billboard.


After leaving ABC studios, Lopez and the group walked to Times Square for a MENUDO social media takeover with People en Español and then proceeded to 30 Rockefeller Plaza to shoot a segment for NBC’s Access Hollywood. Tomorrow, March 21, MENUDO will perform on ABC’s Live with Kelly and Ryan and then on Fox’s Good Day New York on Wednesday, March 22.

Mario Lopez said, “Today’s launch is monumental and it’s just the beginning. The world is finally going to see how talented and hardworking these boys are and how great their music sounds. I could not be prouder.”

After New York, MENUDO will return to Miami for their Hispanic Television debut on Univision’s Despierta América before re-joining Mario Lopez in Los Angeles to attend the iHeartRadio Music Awards and for a special performance for Access Hollywood on March 31st. MENUDO will then drop their official NFT and perform at the Oasis Wynwood in Miami, FL while also streaming into the meteverse’s Decentraland on April 6.

Menudo’s debut single and video “Mi Amore” released by Mistar Entertainment and distributed worldwide by “The Orchard” is now available across all platforms.
