Additionally, Ramos just shared an intimate acoustic performance video for “Dear Diary,” the introductory track from his upcoming album. Accompanied by nothing more than a piano in a sparse rehearsal room, he delivers an emotionally charged performance of the song with palpable energy and powerful spirit.

Everything sets the stage for his full-length debut coming soon via Republic Records. Undoubtedly, Ramos is set to cement himself as one of today’s boldest, brightest, and bravest new voices. Born and raised in Bushwick and of Puerto Rican descent, Anthony Ramos first made his mark originating the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton in the TONY® and GRAMMY® Award-winning Broadway smash Hamilton. In 2018, Ramos ignited his music career as an independent solo artist on his own terms. Not only did he lend his voice to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Almost Like Praying” benefit single, but he also began architecting a sharp and soulful signature take on contemporary music. He teamed up with producer Will Wells [Logic, Pentatonix] for The Freedom EP, which garnered acclaim from Billboard and many others.

Ramos is currently in production as the lead in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s highly-anticipated ‘In the Heights’ movie directed by Jon M. Chu for Warner Bros to be released in June 2020. Most recently, he appeared in the Academy Award-winning film A Star Is Born, directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Lady Gaga where he played ‘Ally’s’ (GaGa) best friend and the critically-acclaimed Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It, created by Spike Lee, based on his 1986 film. He has contributed multiple songs to the show’s soundtrack, including the poignant new original song “Cry Today, Smile Tomorrow.” The song was inspired by Ramos working with a patient at Katie’s Art Project an organization that connects children facing life-threatening illnesses with artists through collaborative programs to create a lasting legacy through art. Ramos is repped by Modest! Management and Door 24.

JD McCrary Stuns at LA Premiere

‘The Lion King star JD McCrary Stuns at LA Premiere in Custom Balmain Suit’

The Lion King star JD McCrary (Young Simba) stuns audiences on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere in a custom Balmain suit created by Olivier Rousteing and styled by Ugo Mozie.

The 11-year-old triple threat wears the suit beautifully, with gold and silver handcrafted embroidery made in Paris, fit for a young king. McCrary plays ‘Young Simba’ singing 2 of the movie’s most iconic songs. He also has made history by being the youngest male solo artist to ever be signed. His first EP released April 19th, 2019, and one of the hit songs “Stole My Heart” is produced by music legend Jermaine Dupri. He also starred in the movie Little alongside Marsai Martin, Issa Rae and Regina Hall in theaters now. With more music on the way, it’s safe to say this will be the summer of JD.

In 2018, he made his primetime debut at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards where he wowed audiences around the world performing the hit song “Terrified” with Childish Gambino. He also performed a duet with legendary music icon Cyndi Lauper for WE DAY Live at the Forum.

Together, they sang a special rendition of “Ooh Child,” that was televised live on ABC. JD has also been invited to sing The National Anthem for the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and the 2019 Pro Bowl which was live televised on ESPN as well as ELLEN. He was also named on Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood List.

Anuel AA

Since the release of the album “Real to death”, the pioneer of Trap Latino, Anuel AA, has not stopped receiving good news and a wonderful response from his fans, who have downloaded the songs from the album in a massive way, making him creditor of different recognitions just two months after its premiere.

Since its controversial launch and without having made a promotion to date, “Real to death” is already a Platinum record in the United States, and also holds the coveted certification of the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). Taking into account that there are more strict requirements and it is more difficult to certify an album than a single, this has been a great achievement to be the first musical production of this exponent of the urban genre. Not just an achievement for him, but for the urban genre in general, since Anuel AA is the only Latin solo artist to obtain a Platinum Record for an album released this year.

“When we thought about making the record, we never imagined that all these blessings would come, especially being an independent label, which shows me that I must always be faithful to my genre and to the fans who have supported me from the beginning,” said Anuel AA.

On the other hand, some of the songs on the album, “Real hasta la muerte”, have received their own recognitions individually. The song “Yeezy”, a duet with the Puerto Rican Ñengo Flow, became a Gold Record, as well as “Na Nuevo”, for its large number of downloads on digital platforms.

For its part, the theme “Brindemos” along with his great friend and fellow genre, Ozuna, reached the rating of Double Platinum, while the themes “Want to drink” and “Hypocrite”, which performed a duet with Zion, reached both Platinum Disc certification.
