He’s the son of retired footballer David Beckham and Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham and whilst Victoria has hung up her microphone now, it seems that that Cruz is following in the footsteps of his mother by trying to make it to the top of the charts.
With nine number ones under her belt as part of the world famous Spice Girls, there’s a lot of pressure on the young singer’s shoulders.
The 11-year-old joined Instagram just yesterday and has already amassed 135,000 followers on the social media platform.
He first posted a cover of him performing the cup song that was recently pushed back into the limelight by Anna Kendrick in Pitch Perfect.
People were speculating why Cruz had joined she site, but he didn’t leave anyone in suspense for too long as this morning he revealed that he was releasing a christmas song.
Profits from “If Every Day Was Christmas”, which is now available on iTunes and Apple Music, will be donated to Global’s Make Some Noise charity which supports young disadvantaged people in the UK.
On Capital FM this morning, Cruz said:
“It’s two of my favourite things – singing and Christmas, it’s been amazing to put together and the money’s going to charity.”
The song has a sound reminiscent of a young Justin Bieber and considering Beckham is being managed by Scoot Braun – the man behind signing Bieber – it wouldn’t be surprising if Cruz went onto further his singing career.
Whilst Cruz was being interviewed, his father David was in the room and explained to the radio host that he was “really proud” of his son for venturing into the music industry and said that Cruz is: “having fun, he’s enjoying it”.
The decision to release a song has been met with criticism from some. Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, who said: “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.”
However, Cruz’s manager jumped to his defence on Twitter. He said: “He is an 11-year-old who wanted to make a song to help other kids”. It’s as simple as that.
