My Favorite singer in the world!!:)
Geoffrey Royce Rojas
Prince Royce started his carer in 2010 with his first bilingual hit'Stand By Me' originally sang by Ben E. King. His bachata style singing made him have a 'friendly' competition other bachata artist like the ex lead singer from Aventura: Romeo Santos, the group Xtream, and other bachata style singers.
He is from a Dominican back round both from his mom and dad. Born May 11th 1989 he was raised in the Bronx in New York.
He has only two albums but is writing and singing his own songs,he has won 6 awards on the latest Primeo Lo Nuestro awards and in all categories nominated his friendly competition Romeo Santos didnt win at least ONE award. Romeo Santos is known for being KOB (King of Bachata) and Prince Royce is known as the 'Prince' of bachata, but some of the Roycets think Prince Royce is the king of bachata because he has two Latin GRAMMY nominations, seven Premio Lo Nuestro Awards, four Premios Juventud Awards and four Latin Billboards (currently nominated for 12 more). Prince Royce was the artist with the most #1s on Billboard's 2011 Year End Charts. He collaborated with Mexican supergroup Maná and reggaeton icon Daddy Yankee, toured with Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull. Two sold-out tours of Europe and the U.S. later, the singer became one of the biggest stars in contemporary Latin music.
"Growing up, every summer I would take a plane and visit my grandparents in the Dominican Republic," says Royce with a hint of nostalgia in his voice. "And that's all I would hear during those summers: old-school bachata. When I started dreaming about becoming a singer, I felt that I wanted to contribute to the growth of bachata in this country. It's my culture, and I'm just happy to keep it alive through music."
Prince Royce has come a long way. a lot of his fans are excited for his new albums to come and we are anxiously waiting his U.S tour!!:D
