Erickson Fernandez was born on January 31, 1988 in Los Mina, Santo Domingo. He is a Dominican Hip Hop artist known as "Mozart La Para". His stage name comes from: "Mozart" for the different exponents he helped compose at the beginning of his career and "La Para" for the fear that his opponents had when battling him in Freestyle competitions. Mozart began as an artist in 2002, where he used to record songs using the money they gave him to go to school. In 2007 his musical quality, style and immense talent, led him to become a break out star of Dominican Hip Hop. The young man was well received at the “Batalla de los Gallos, Red Bull 2008", the year in which his career exploded with the theme "Vamo en Dauran". He expanded his musical career touring internationally in Europe in late 2009, selling out more than 30 shows in three months. He would later tour the US, performing 45 shows in less than two months. During this tour he appeared as a special guest with famous Bachata group Aventura, at the Izod Center in New Jersey in front of 20,000 people. He would later go on to tour Colombia, further expanding his fan base. Mozart’s current single “Si te pego cuerno” features Puerto Rican super star Farruko, and is currently in rotation on Latin radio stations around the US, as well as all over the Dominican Republic. As of today the video for “Si te pego cuerno” has over 23 million YouTube views cumulatively, and can also be seen on MTV Tr3s.
