Mexicano 777 (born Israel Perales Ortiz), is a reggaetón and Latin hip-hop artist of Puerto Rican descent. His artist name comes from the fact that his father is of Mexican heritage.
His ability to sing was unveiled by parents and siblings when Israel went to take a shower and began to sing. As he came out of the bathroom everyone was waiting in front of the door asking how he had learned the songs he was singing (those of Pedrito Fernandez). All this happened when the singer was just 6 years old. At this young age he was already to duplicate the voice of Fernandez. Therefore after the young singer began taking part in various school activities such as plays, recitals, musicals.
