Who is Cruz David Beckham?
Cruz David Beckham is the son of former soccer player David Beckham and former "Spice Girls" member Victoria Beckham, who is currently a fashion designer. At the age of two, little Cruz had wowed thousands of audience in New York's Madison Square Garden with his break dance during a Spice Girls' reunion concert. It seems that Cruz is going to follow in her mother's footsteps by pursuing music. In early 2016, Victoria Beckham shared on her Instagram account a video of Cruz singing the chorus to Twista and Faith Evans song "Hope". In the video, the 11 years old kid can be seen showing his singing skills while swaying from side to side. Fans not only liked his singing, they even went as far as to compare him to the Canadian pop star Justin Bieber. It was soon followed by another video of him performing Anna Kendrick's ‘Pitch Perfect’ song "Cups" while drumming a plastic cup for the beat. This time the video was shared by his father David Beckham on his Instagram account.
The Meteoric Rise To Stardom
After his singing videos went viral on the social media, people started to like his singing skills very much and he was touted as "The next Justin Bieber". The videos also caught the attention of many renowned celebrities in the music world. Simon Cowell, who is well known as a reality television judge, record producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist, told about Cruz that he would love to sign up the young talent if the boy comes to him. Considering that Cowell’s rival Simon Fuller had some influence over Cruz's mother Victoria's singing career, it is to be seen if the young Beckham boy decides to take up the offer. However, it seems that it is only a matter of time before he signs up for a record deal. It was reported that the boy has started taking classes to learn the guitar. In October 19, 2016, Cruz's mother Victoria uploaded a picture on her Instagram account which showed her son practicing hard on the guitar. The fact that the picture was taken in Rodney Jerkins' recording studio, sparked rumors that the young boy is starting to record his own music.
