All About Cruz Rock
Cruz Rock, a Saint Croix singer, is from the Virgin Islands and hails from a musical family. His mother is from Trinidad and Tobago, while his father is of Puerto Rican heritage from the Virgin Islands. His father used to perform on the island with his sister and has a large fan following there.
Rock recognized his talent at the age of five and began following his love. His father taught the singer-songwriter how to play the piano. Furthermore, at his mother’s persuasion, he attended one of America’s art universities, CCAD, on scholarship and gained the confidence to perform on stage. During his studies, he learned that his “uniqueness” and upbringing set him apart from other vocalists. This helped him in gaining the “courage to follow this aim tirelessly.” He began his musical career by playing throughout Ohio, New York, Florida, and California. Rock enjoys meditation, yoga, being outside, basketball, and kickboxing. The self-described introvert and “first Latin Caribbean musician to burst into the world stage out of the Virgin Islands” has received several honors over his career.
According to his escunited.com interview, the musician has been “proud to be the number one break-out artist in L3 Magazine of Canada.” He has even received recognition for his “sophomore record, Soul Rebel.” Rock has also “been on tunes with Grammy-winning singers such as Jamaica’s Beenie Man and Puerto Rico’s Zion y Lennox.” After “collaborating with VH1’s Love and Hip Hop Superstar Amara La Negra” in 2022, the singer chose to enter the American Song Contest.
He presented an original song that “was a mash-up of reggaeton and dancehall. It was smooth and included a great Saxophone tune.” The song has “Caribbean, Latin, Pop, and Funk themes.” Rock is set to deliver a powerful performance in the American Song Contest in order to accomplish his ambition of becoming a “Mega Super Star” in America. His performance will be broadcast on Monday at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT.
