Who is Nick Merico?

Born Nicolas Merico under the sign of Capricorn on the 29th of December 1995, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, now with American nationality. Nick is an Hispanic singer, YouTuber and actor, probably best known to the world for his significant presence on social media in particular, and the TV screen, owing to his involvement with several titles as an actor, YouTube and live television shows as a singer. He’s enjoyed some successes over the course of his acting career since 2011.

Early life and education: Growing up in Argentina

Nick was raised alongside his sister Lexi, initially in their place of birth, by his soccer coach father Fredy Merico, and his mother Cheryl Merico of an unspecified profession.

Regarding his early interests, Nick wanted to sing ever since he was a toddler, and began working his own way towards realizing this dream by constantly practicing. By the age of 11, he was already considered a good singer, thus participating in various vocal activities, such as his school’s chorus and home-made singing videos. At some point during his teenage years, Nick’s parents moved over to Florida USA, where he began attending American Heritage High School, matriculating from this institution in 2013 – it doesn’t seem as though he made an attempt at college education afterwards.

Career: A singing actor

Nick thrust himself into the public eye with his own YouTube channel, created in July 2011, at which point he was 15 years old. In the same year, Nick was also seen in his first title ever – a single episode of “Charlie’s Angels”. It wasn’t until three years later that his channel’s popularity grew, and he was selected for the role of Daniel Miller in “Every Witch Way: Spellbound”, which was the franchise that would definitely change his life. In 2014, Nick was cast in the same role in a series stemming from the film, entitled simply “Every Witch Way”. The family comedy drama TV series features Nick in the lead male role, in which he also had the opportunity to showcase his vocal capabilities on a few occasions, boosting his acting and singing career simultaneously in one project.

He remained through 85 episodes until 2015, but was then less active in Hollywood, apparently taking a three-year break, returning in 2018 as Jorge in “Trico Tri Happy Halloween”, his second TV movie. In 2019 he is set to star as J.C. in the short film now in pre-production entitled “Fist Timers”.

His YouTube channel: The real success

While building up his acting career, Nick simultaneously grew his YouTube channel with song covers that he often continues to upload. Following the massive success of Nickelodeon’s “Every Witch Way”, his channel exploded with popularity. Merico’s most popular video is entitled “Bruno Mars- “It Will Rain” from Breaking Dawn- Official Music Video Cover by Nick Merico”, numbering over 10 million views.

The singer mostly covers songs from pop artists, meanwhile also at times creating his own music. His YouTube channel is his main source of income, though lately it looks as though he’s trying to change that.

Becoming his own singer

With the help of Bucton Media, Nick has been trying to leave YouTube for his own site nickmerico.com since 2018 – his newest original song is entitled “Save Your Love”, and features on the main page. The site also covers any news that the young singer might be involved in, while branded merchandise is yet to be released into sales.

To be an Idol

To strengthen his popularity and public influence, meanwhile also proving to the world that he has a voice of true quality, Nick entered the “American Idol” singing contest reality show in 2019.

His first performance was Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black”, which allowed him to gain great momentum in the competition.

Love life: Does he have a girlfriend?

When it comes to Nick’s romantic involvements, owing to the fact that he’s been famous since early childhood, he doesn’t seem to be too shy in divulging who he might be dating. It is unknown whether he had any short-term partners in high school, but many fans think that Merico’s popularity and appearance made a great contribution to his early love life. He has been in a relationship with actress, singer and director Kira Kosarin since 2014, and the couple are believed to still be going strong. There has been no controversy surrounding their union, but they haven’t thus far announced any plans for becoming a family.

The two reside supposedly together at an undisclosed location in the US.

Who is his sister?

While there’s not enough information about Lexi Merico to conclude whether she’s older than Nick or not, it is a known fact that she’s also a celebrity. For now it is unclear how she rose to fame, and some believe that she owes her success to Nick’s breakthrough. Whatever the cause, Lexi’s career in painting and fashion photography seems to be going really well, as she also has her own business website lexmerico.com.

A talented songwriter

Besides having a naturally good voice, Nick is also skilled at playing the piano and guitar.

He often writes his own lyrics by using either of the two instruments for inspiration, meanwhile also creating the melody of the song. Merico finds this to be the best way for him to produce original content, and thus resembles a first-class musician in terms of authenticity.

He keeps it cool on social media

Unlike most fresh artists, even though Nick is expected to mostly keep his posts related to his work, the popular singer often engages with the fans in unexpected ways. One such example is his Twitter post, posing the question ‘Does anyone ever wonder what it’s like to have laser vision? Like how do you see while lasers are shooting out of your eyes??’ His inquiry received positive reviews from the fans, which helped build the artist’s charisma.

What is Nick Merico’s net worth?

Have you lately taken a second to wonder just how rich Nick could be, in mid-2024? Some of the most reputable sources have estimated his net worth to be over $650,000, earned by lending his acting expertise to several titles throughout his career, but most of all through constant effort to better his covers and create original music on his YouTube channel. Nick’s engagement in the world of entertainment is only starting now, so the said amount will most likely increase.

Body measurements – what is his height?

So, what do you think might be the physical specifications of the Hispanic singer? Nick is 5ft 10ins (178cm) tall, and weighs around 176lbs (80kgs). His chest is 42, his waist 32, and his biceps 14, while his body shape is generally referred to as fit; his shoe size is 10.

He has dark brown hair and light brown eyes, with a somewhat dim though still bright complexion.

Social media presence

Being a fresh face in the entertainment industry, Nick is expected by his colleagues and fans to maintain constant engagement with his audience on social media. Merico is aware of how this habit can greatly increase his profits in the future, and thus spends a lot of time informing the public about all aspects of his life. He is considered ubiquitous on all three of the most popular social media networks. His Twitter and his Instagram accounts are popular, as is his YouTube channel, and his Facebook page has nearly 380,000 fans.
