Kery Morell, from Canadian father and Dominican mother, was born on October 12, 1992 in Boca Chica, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He was part of the Boca Chica football and basketball team, but has always shown a great passion for music. Epicurean and studious, Kery easily learned French and English in addition to his mother tongue, Spanish. His father died when he was only 8 years old, and a few years later he immigrated with his mother to Canada, where he continued his studies. At the age of 16, he formed a Christian music duo with one of his friends, and they even performed at the local church. Despite his roots in Christian music and Bachata, Latin pop is now Kery’s universe. Always self-taught, he learned the art of audiovisual creation and production, and quickly became a video director, author and interpreter of his musical work. Internationally renowned artists trust him, and recognize him for his lyrics and for his creation and production of music videos of unmatched quality.
In June 2019, Faouze Barkati from the record label Yanis Records France (with worldwide hits such as Danza Kuduro ft Don Omar & Lucenzo), uses Kery’s video services for the Haitian artist “FRE GABE”, production RCA Sony Music. After this experience, a great artistic and friendly complicity is born. Delighted with the melodies of the tracks heard, a month later, Kery Morell and Brenda Fernandez travel from Montreal to Tunisia, where the Yanis Records team, Fabrice Toigo and Yanis Barkati were waiting for them to begin musical creations. The duo worked their first songs with Latin-Canadian music producer Kelody, and later on they worked on some songs with Medylandia (music producer of worldwide hits like Dancing Kizomba ft Don Omar & Alx Veliz).
Kery and Brenda are a loving couple, and by joining their talents and strengths, they became an inseparable artistic duo. Imperfectos became their first Latin pop single. Their love and their complicity are palpable in the videoclip, which shows the strong chemistry between them, and makes Imperfectos a song with which we can all relate to.
Brenda Fernandez was born in Mexico City on March 13, 1990. Since childhood, she did impressions of artists like Selena and Jennifer Lopez and dreamed of becoming a star herself. She was always an outstanding student in school, and since young she participated in school talent shows, in musical comedies, and in dance competitions and shows, area in which she stands out. At first, her art was expressed through Mexican folklore, but it didn’t take long to open up to other styles and train in different disciplines such as jazz, urban contemporary, reggaeton, heels, dancehall, salsa, bachata and hip- hop. Her musical influences were mainly 90’s pop, Latin pop, and Spanish ballads; but later on she would also fall in love with other musical styles such as reggaeton, dancehall, R&B, salsa, bachata, and afrobeats.
In 2014 she leaves everything behind, friends and family. She leaves Mexico and moves to Canada looking for a better quality of life and opportunities to reach her dream of becoming a confirmed artist. Like her partner Kery, she enjoys learning and speaks English and French, in addition to her mother tongue, Spanish. In just a few years she has achieved to choreograph and perform in major events and festivals in Montreal such as Just for Laughs, Weekends du Monde, Canada Latin Awards, RepreZent, Articien, and Montreal Salsa Convention. But also in events in other cities of Canada such as Loto Quebec Fireworks (Quebec), Quebec International Salsa Festival (Quebec), DansEncore Festival (Trois Rivières), Ottawa International Salsa Convention (Ottawa), Canada Salsa and Bachata Congress (Toronto).
She has also performed in concerts, opening shows and music videos for artists such as Loud, Kashif, Daddy Yankee, Tommy Titerito, De la Ghetto, Angee Wings, Cruzito, Walex Cotete, Addictiv, and Argento among others.
