The only time he thought of declining, of not participating in a singing competition again, he was 10 years old and had just received the most dire news of his short life: not qualifying for the live galas of “Super Kids” ( 2018). Two years later, he returned to a music reality show looking for revenge and took second place. Finally, last Monday, imitating the Italian Laura Pausini in “I am, new generation”, He got the victory. Fiorella Caballero says she is ready to take on bigger challenges. “This is just the beginning,” he says.

His interest in music was born when he was six years old and he saw his uncles performing fashionable songs in popular Chimbotan peñas. “I started singing songs by Corazón Serrano, a group that was in fashion at that time. I really liked singing, I pretended that I was a singer and that I performed on big stages, with a large audience, ”recalls the youngest.

Before reaching television, Caballero participated in singing competitions organized by shopping centers and educational centers. In 2016, he obtained first place in “La Voz Maltina”, a contest regulated by the Colegio Soberana Orden Militar de Malta in San Gabriel in Villa María del Triunfo.
“At the age of eight I won my first contest at the school where I was studying, it was a wonderful experience that I will never forget”, highlights the talented teenager.
The first time he stepped on a television stage, he was 10 years old, and unlike the singing competitions in which he had participated up to that moment, in “Súper Kids”, a Latina program that had Cristian Rivero, Adolfo Aguilar, in the lead and Karen Schwarz, he had to face minor music lovers. This time, the challenge was greater, but he was not daunted.
“The competition was strong, I managed to enter the program; But I didn’t make it to the live auditions. The day they told me I wasn’t going any more, I was crying, I got sick, I got depressed. My family gave me the push I needed to get up, my parents told me that there is always a second or a third chance, so I raised my head and continued ”, recalls the youngest.
At her young age, Fiorella has learned to face different trials and succeed in them. “Every time I go on stage I feel scared, but when I start singing I forget everything and I don’t stop. I’m never going to stop making music ”, he highlights.
Before imitating Laura Pausini, the winner of “I am: new generation” imitated Myriam Hérnandez. “I decided to change the imitation because my voice timbre is more similar to Laura’s, although it is not easy to get her Italian accent,” says the minor.
“I would like one day to be like her (Laura Pausini), I admire her, I love her songs and it’s simple, she shared the video of my triumph on her social networks. Hopefully one day we’ll sing together ”, remarks Fiorella Caballero.
“What’s next for me? I plan to continue with my imitation, to perfect it; but I will also seek that people know me as Fiorella Caballero, that they recognize my voice. It may be that I apply for ‘La Voz Kids’, I’m preparing for that ”, he emphasizes.
