For over a decade, Latin Gospel Music listeners in the US and abroad have enjoyed the melodic, Christian Salsa music of Puchi Colon. Puchi (pronounced 'poo-chee') is a talented vocalist, musician, producer, and arranger. His passion for his music compliments his sincere love for his savior, Jesus Christ and conviction to advance the Kingdom of God. Puchi recognizes his talent as a gift from God and surrenders it as an offering. Puchi released his very first album in 1996 titled, "Voy A Comenzar" and people immediately took notice. In 1997, Ralph Hernandez, joined Puchi and formed his band. Since formed, Puchi & his band has toured extensively in the United States and the Caribbean.
