    Robert Avellanet (born June 30, 1975 in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico), also known as Roberto Avellanet or RobA, is a singer who was a member of Menudo.

    Robert Avellanet is the nephew of well known pop and ballad singer Chucho Avellanet. Inspired by his uncle's success across Latin America, Robert Avellanet wanted to be a singer since childhood.

    Avellanet, himself, became a teen idol in Puerto Rico and across Latin America after being hired by Edgardo Diaz as a member of Menudo in 1988. He joined the group during the era popularly known as Menudo's Rock era; although Menudo were no longer as famous as they were earlier during the 1980s, nevertheless, they were still very popular and producing hit records.

    Avellanet's CD debut came when Menudo recorded Sombras Y Figuras, title of an album that produced major hits for the group. Then came Los Ultimos Heroes, which was released in Portuguese as Os Ultimos Herois, and No Me Corten El Pelo.

    During his tenure at Menudo, Avellanet shared the stage with Ricky Martin (briefly in 1988-89), Sergio Blass, Ruben Gomez, Angelo Garcia, Rawy Torres, Cesar Abreu (briefly during 1990),and Mexico's Adrian Olivares, the first non-Puerto Rican Menudo, among others.

    1991, the year in which Avellanet left Menudo, was a tumultuous one for the band, as (fellow members) Sergio and Ruben were arrested at Miami International Airport for allegedly transporting drugs with their belongings during a Menudo tour, and following a sexual scandal that threatened the reputation of the band, the group broke up. It is uncertain whether Robert decided to leave the band because of these scandals, but according to band rules, he had to leave the group after reaching the age of sixteen, so he would have left the band that year anyway.

    Almost immediately after becoming a former Menudo, Robert and ex-bandmate and personal friend Rawy Torres formed a group named Euphoria. The group had some success during the early 1990s, recorded two albums but eventually split. Avellanet then married and established himself and his wife in Miami, Florida. The couple had one child, but they eventually divorced.

    After the success of El Reencuentro (a group of six former Menudos from the band's golden era), Avellanet and his former bandmates (Sergio, Ruben, Angelo and Rawy) were inspired to make their own reunion band, naming it after the Los Ultimos Heroes album. Los Ultimos Heroes toured Latin America with some success.

    Avellanet currently performs at a Miami nightclub and is preparing for the release of his next album, Jet Privado.
