Cruz Beckham is surely following in the footsteps of his mama–Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham–, by joining the music game. And he’s already making fast tracks toward becoming the next Justin Bieber.
Just yesterday, it was announced that the handsome 11-year-old had signed with Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun…
The uncanny thing is how much Cruz’s career already resembles JB’s. When Justin got his start he was singing cover songs, and Cruz already has a duet with Cody Simpson under his belt. A Bieber duet can’t be far off.
Braun’s a family pal and we’re told the Beckhams trust him. Translation: They know Scooter won’t throw Cruz to the music business wolves.
Today, the youngest Beckham released his debut single, “If Everyday Was Christmas.” The track aired on UK radio this morning, before being made available online. Cruz’s father, David Beckham, shared the following video of Cruz hearing himself for the first time to his Instagram. In it, Cruz can be seen grinning ear to ear.
He captioned the video, “Not his average morning before school… Proud of my little man with his new Christmas single and also helping children around the UK with the proceeds from this… #ifeverydaywaschristmas.”
Proceeds from the single will go to Global‘s Make Some Noise charity to help disadvantaged youth in the UK.
Feedback from Beckham’s release this morning has mostly all been positive, except from Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.
Morgan slammed Cruz’s singing career saying, “Yeah, I don’t know how he managed to release a pop single. It’s sickening. Put him on a talent show if you wanna see how good he is,” and “Why don’t you go to school, mate, because you’re not famous, your parents are famous… stop putting these kids into the public domain while simultaneously saying privacy.”
Manager Scooter has since taken to Twitter to defend Cruz, suggesting Piers match the profits “If Everyday Was Christmas” makes for charity.
