He participated in many singing contests, showing himself and his judges that singing was his greatest passion. Delfin’s boom came on December 2006[3] when his song Torres Gemelas (twin towers) was uploaded to YouTube. By January 4 it had been heard by 250,000 people[1], and by March 24 the several copies had more than a million visitors and thousands of commentaries.[3]

Everything started when Delfín got into the stage, wearing a black suit and a pair of pants with his name printed on them. People were screaming and whistling.[5] It was an exciting night, like nobody in Chile thought it could be[4].

The show was opened with his greatest hit[5] “Torres Gemelas”.

Viral videos

In 2006, "Torres Gemelas" (Twin Towers) was released. While the song is tragic in nature, the subject matter being Delfin losing a loved one in the terrorist attack of 9/11, the whimsical and kitschy nature of the song as well as the poor acting in the music video has made this song a bit of an internet meme.

In April 2010 Defín Quishpe released the song "En tus Tierras Bailaré" with the two Peruvian "You-tube stars" Wendy Sulca and Tigresa del Oriente.
