Who is Keren Montero?
Montero is a 16-year-old singer from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, who dreams of making it big with a career in music. Ever since she was a child, Montero always sang for a local church choir, and that’s where she developed a love for singing.
“The church was my first stage and it has been my platform and it continues to be until now,” Montero said. “One day they decided to give me an opportunity in the church, and I was excited and very nervous.”
Apart from being active in the church, Montero is also a member of an organization that helps the youth through music. Montero collaborates with the Voy a Ser Grande foundation, led by Tony López, and a team of young people, talent builders, who have joined forces to make the ambitions of youth with few means come true.
She is thankful to God for her talented voice that has a touch of gospel and soul but also the power to hit the high notes. The combination of technique and natural ability has helped her stand out from the rest of the competition. Her skills have led to her gaining the Golden Buzzer and winning DGT, and now she is looking to do the same on AGT All Stars.
