Carlos Andre Garcia, 21, better known to his fans as Lito (Garcia), knows all too well the struggles of the streets. Hailing from the predominately Puerto Rican populated neighborhood of Humboldt Park in Chicago, the feisty young talent with the baby face was statistically more likely to be incarcerated than successful. However, his strong Latino roots in music and performance provided a backdrop of sanctity that has made him one of the most buzzed about up and coming young stars. Described as a Latino Justin Bieber peppered with hints of R&B made popular by R. Kelly and Trey Songz, Lito's crossover appeal is pretty apparent after a quick view of his twitter feed. With young fans of all backgrounds and ethnicities tweeting daily love and support, Lito is slowly turning his humble beginnings into overnight stardom.
Lito is set to release his latest single "Lights on" Produced by " Rising Star XCEL, the mid tempo track has a throwback feel with a timeless message about finding that special love. In a time where everyone is twerking and booty popping, it wasn't surprising that the versatile young crooner with the baby face would release "Lights on." When asked about his latest single, Lito had this to say, "...don't get me wrong, I still love the twerkers, trap music, and I'll always stay true to my Latino roots but this song, though, is what you get after all the twerking and superficial stuff wears off-when you are looking for that keeper."
