Early life and La Banda
Richard grew up with some familiarity with the entertainment industry as his father worked as a camera operator while having a side job as a musician. His mother, on the other hand, was a dancer. At a young age, he learned to sing as well as dance along with a younger twin brother named Yashua. He also has another younger brother who shared his interests. As his love for music grew, he aspired to make it big as a music star.
He participated in the show called “La Banda”, a singing competition created by Simon Cowell and Ricky Martin. The purpose of the show was to create a new Latin boy band from the many hopeful auditions. He joined during the first season when there were about 40 contestants of various origins, originating from Latin America. He and his twin brother joined the show as a singing/songwriter duo, but Yashua was eliminated in the second round and Richard went on without him. He reached the final and was named as one of the winners, chosen as the second member of the group CNCO.
Camacho joined Christopher Velez, Zabdiel De Jesus, Joel Pimentel and Erick Brian Colon as a band CNCO. The name is a pun on the Latin word Cinco meaning five, a reference to the members of the group. After their formation, music publications began to take notice for showcasing talents similar to those of a previous Cowell project in One Direction. Camacho already had a bit of experience working with De Jesus as they were in the same band early on in “La Banda”.
Their win on the show meant they got a recording contract with Sony Music Latin and were soon signed to a five-year contract.
Ricky Martin became their representative, while rapper Wisin began collaborating with them for their first release. They made their first public appearance at the 2016 Univision Feliz New Year celebration, performing the song “Devuelveme Mi Corazon”, the last song they played in “La Banda”. Early the following year, they released their debut single “Tan Facil”, which topped the US iTunes Latino charts and led them to their first concert in Miami Beach.
Tours and albums
CNCO began touring as the opening act for Ricky Martin, with the group holding performances in both North and South America.
They released their second single “Quisiera” and went on to win five awards at the Premios Juventud, an award show for Spanish-speaking celebrities. Their fan base quickly grew and after only a few months they released their first album – “Primera Cita” – which means first date in English. The album was known for its mix of cultures, as each member of the band had a different upbringing. They released the music video for the single “Para Enamorarte” and fans got a chance to join in, as shown at the end of that video.
In 2017, CNCO became a finalist for New Artist of the Year at the Billboard Latin Music Awards.
Following their performance, they embarked on their first headlining tour across 15 countries around the world, mostly in South America. They then teased a second album with the release of the single “Hey DJ” and “Mamita” – this self-titled album was released in mid-2018 and quickly topped the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart. They then held their first World tourvisiting Guatemala, USA and other countries.
After about three years of running, CNCO left the care of Ricky Martin and signed with Walker Kolm Entertainment, a company known for managing artists like Wisin. In 2019, they released their first ‘Spanglish’ single called “Pretend”, which samples the song “Rhythm of the Night”.
