Johnny Lozada (born on December 21 1967 in Caguas, Puerto Rico) is an actor and singer who is a former member of Menudo, during Menudo's golden years.

Lozada became a member of the group in 1980 and was there until early 1984. He was replaced by Robi Rosa. In between, he participated in the album Quiero Ser, which became Menudo's top selling album ever, in the record breaking Brazilian concert that drew 250,000 screaming teens to the stadium, in the big Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport welcoming of which the group was an object when they arrived back to Puerto Rico after touring Mexico in 1981, and the movie Una Aventura Llamada Menudo, where he played the boy who fell in love with one of Gladys Rodriguez's daughters in the movie.(Actually, they were her nieces, they called her "Tia", Spanish for Aunt.)

Lozada was the romantic one of the group, and his hits with the group included the classic "Clara" and "Señora Mia", a song with a 'son talking to his mom' message that he sang to Ms. Rodriguez in one of the movie's scenes.

He also participated in two soap operas with Menudo in Venezuela.

In 1986, Lozada participated in a campaign to encourage youth abstinence from sex, in which he recorded two duets ("Cuando Estemos Juntos" and "Détente") with Tatiana and music videos for them. This received much publicity in Latin America and even in the United States, where it was the subject of a report by John Stossel on 20/20.

After he retired from Menudo, Lozada adopted a boy, and he became a member of Proyecto M together with Rene Farrait and Ray Reyes. Once that group dissolved, he went into acting.

Lozada came back into the scene participating in Mexican telenovelas, and in 1998, he and former Menudo's Farrait, Miguel Cancel, Ray Reyes, Charlie Masso and Ricky Melendez got together in Puerto Rico for a concert named El Reencuentro. El Reencuentro was so successful that they needed to add two more concerts that weekend and later, they went on tour all over Latin America and the United States.

Lozada has moved to Miami and is married with four kids. He played boxer "Johnny Trinidad" in the Amigas y rivales Telenovela with Televisa.

Lozada likes to have contact with his public, and is always accessible for autographs. He is currently working in Mexico City doing theatre in the comedy: "AL AIRE" with Maria Rebeca, Raquel Garza (Tere la Secretaria), Sharis Cid, Sergio Catalan, Miguel Garza, and Macaria.
