El Alfa Recalls His Biggest Achievement in 'Growing Up Latino' Episode: Watch

Representing the Dominican Republic, the singer El Alfa answered all of Billboard's burning questions for the latest episode of "Growing Up Latino."

The video starts with Alfa saying that his favorite homemade food is tuna with white rice, corn and Russian salad. His favorite show is Betty La Fea (Ugly Betty) and he loves New York City. The best advice he received from his grandmother was not to tell lies, while his favorite cartoon was Tom & Jerry.

He likes to spend money on clothes, and when he goes on tour, he misses his children a lot.

The biggest challenge Alfa has had is to perform at the Palacio de los Deportes in the Dominican Republic in front of 10,000 people. "I was the first urban artist in the country to achieve it," he says.
