Nick’s first public appearance was in his 5th grade chorus production. He was nervous but his teacher saw something special in Nick and gave him his first solo. After that performance Nick sang at every opportunity he had. He also began playing the piano, the guitar and writing his own music. In a very short period of time others began to take notice of Nick and he has since appeared on several TV networks such as ABC on Charlie’s Angels, Univision, AmericaTeVe, NBC and has been featured in national commercials and magazines. Nick has won quite a few singing competitions, in one receiving the largest number of votes in the history of the televised singing show.
Though Nick was gaining attention for his beautiful voice, he found he also has a gift for acting. Within a year of studying acting Nick was not only pursued by Disney Chanel but eventually landed a lead role on a Nickelodeon TV show called “Every Witch Way” where he plays the character Daniel Miller. Nick just recently wrapped filming season two which is currently airing this July. Season One is currently airing in Europe and will open in Latin America this summer.

When Nick is not performing, he is very active in playing soccer every weekend on a travel team coached by his father Fredy Merico.
