Sergio Vargas tiene una de las voces mas privilegiadas del merengue y cuenta con mas de 20 años de carrera artística. Sergio consiguió su gran oportunidad al estrellato gracia al haber ganado el segundo lugar en el festival de la voz que fuese celebrado en el famoso show de televisión "El show del medio día" alrededor de los años 81-82. Poco tiempo después de haber ganado, el maestro Dionis Fernández reconoció su talento y le propuso formar parte de su agrupación, lo cual Sergio acepto. Estando con Dionis, Sergio logro recopilar muchos éxitos como por ejemplo: "El ritmo de la noche", Como es posible", "un hombre y una mujer" y otros mas. En 1986 decide formar parte de la agrupación Los Hijos del Rey, la cual lo convierte como cantante líder.
Fernando Villalona, the first artist named "El Mayimbe" (born in Loma de Cabrera, Dajabón Province on May 7, 1955, Ramón Fernando Villalona Évora), is a Dominican merengue singer whose popularity started to grow in the late 70s and has not declined ever since. Fernando began singing at a very early age and became popular after participating in "El Festival de la Voz", an amateur TV talent show. After that, merengue icon Wilfrido Vargas hired him to be part of his group Los Hijos del Rey but Fernando and the group would soon be separated after his popularity became larger than the group itself. He would then go into a period of drugs and isolation but never stopped singing, recording some of his best music during that period.
Songs such as "Tabaco y ron", "Celos,", "Te Amo Demasiado,","La Hamaquita", "Dominicano Soy," "Sonámbulo," and "Carnaval" among others became popular in the 1980s. "Quisqueya," "No Podrás," "Música Latina," "Retorno," and "Me he Enamorado" were some of his biggest hits in the 1990s. In recent years he has had some health problems making performing a difficult task. But besides the fact that he has not been able to perform frequently, he probably still is the most important merengue singer in Dominican history. He was married to a Puerto-Rican woman named Evelyn Jorge and they have a daughter named Paloma.
