Demetrius's first record was done at Miguel Vaccaro Netto's Young Records in 1959. He was a natural rocker following the Elvis school. Demetrius had the right attitude, was good-looking and knew how to behave on the stage. He started singing in English but in 1961, Diogo Mulero, A&R man at Continental Records knew better and convinced Demetrius to sing 'Corina, Corina' in the local language. That was a big hit that Young Records could never match. Demetrius had finally arrived.
