Eric & John Rosado are a dynamic 13 year-old twin brother dual from the Statue of Liberty area of Jersey City. They Sing & Act, compose songs play a little keys and Trumpet (John) and Drums(Eric). They were "discovered" in 2016 at the age of 12 (born in 2002), when they signed up to sing in a Christmas Concert in a church. They got involved in this unique "MusicTech Kids" training program and their spunky little 4 year old sister "tags along" sometimes. By age 5 they invited her (as good bros should, to join in a few tracks LOL!) The teens are involved in several music videos and are working on a full album, and a 45 minute "set". During the summer of 2016, they travelled to the boardwalks of EVERY major beach town on the Jersey Shore from Cape May, Ocean City, Wildwood, Atlantic City, Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant, Asbury Park to Coney Island and the "Mermaid Parade" (they did not go, the film crew did due to the "rating" of the participants), but they did go twice to the boardwalk and filmed a "MOVIE" about the making of their Music Video "The Mermaid Dance". It is in postproduction at the moment and teh NextGen Stars Production Company is planning a Spring 2018 Release!
Short song description for "It's Oblivious"
This is a rugged and then yet gentle reflective rock track with descriptive and compassionate lyrics, about the need for assistance after a hurricane! It is sung by teens and a child who are grandchildren of a storm damage victim. The are MusicTech Kids
This song was inspired by the dramatic life threatening tragedy and the unfortunate fatal hurricane “MARIA” in September 2017, which destroyed much of the Caribbean, including the home of Grandma Elba Rosado. It was weeks before this family heard from the mother of their dad Luis, hence the loving and terrified grandmother of these three children. Fortunately she is safe, but her home in Salinas and Aibonito, Puerto Rico, was severely damaged.
The children are in the scholarship division of the very unique MusicTech Kids™ program created by the award-winning Prof. David Musial. He is an expert in Music & Video technologies, and has been a professional church Pipe Organist since age 10 (1970) and became a Liturgical Music Director in the 1980’s.
The first session during the horrific hurricane, the family was present put was intensely distracted for natural reasons. What does Prof. David do??? He does what he “does” and started discussing their concerns and feelings. He transcribed the conversations, and as weeks went by, they modified the story and once we learned that Gram was “OK”, he coached them to create a musical “mood”.
They then made the instrumental. This procedure was initiated in “Garageband” software by Apple, where we found pro drum “loops”, and then found a singing range (the boys voices are “changing” at just 13) and then discussed piano chord feelings, a bass line and we crafted a melody. We then transferred into ProTools where we added guitar-like sounds, nasty-distorted synth leads, orchestral strings and rock drums. The piece begins with thunderstorm and violent winds, and it leads into a compassionate, gentle electric-harp like piano reflection, and eventually ends with an authentic, traditional lullaby “Los Pollitos” in Spanish (The Little Chick) which Gramma Rosado taught little Sophia, who is just 5 years old now. She pleas “We Need To Help Her”.
Professor Musial and mom Maria Rosado, filmed the children singing the song in the vocal booth and he then edited a basic “live” production video, which you can view at this link on YouTube or Facebook.
100% of any profit income earned from any sale or public performance or broadcast royalty from this song, will be directed to the grandmother Elba Rosado in Puerto Rico, to assist her with a speedy recovery, (approximately $10,000 damage). Once her home is “fixed”, any future income shall be donated to the MusicTech Kids Scholarship fund to continue to help the Rosado kids and others
Short song description for "SHOOTING STAR"
The very first original song creation began when Prof. David asked the 12 year old boys (who still had the “hi-pitch” child voices) “What are your hobbies?” Eric proclaimed “baseball” and John (Jay) stated he love watching “Star Wars” movies. So David put on his thinking cap and asked if they also like to skateboard or roller skate. They replied a little of both. Do you know about “RollerBrights®’ In-Line Skates with L.E.D. Lights in the wheels? They did not. So this was the inspiration of the song where the general synopsis is that the boys just finished playing baseball at a diamond near their home and it was dusk. Jay decides to play a prank on Eric (as the both often do) and he quietly slipped a baseball out of his backpack and then quickly and quietly pulled out his “Star Wars Laser Light Saber” and smacked the ball into the sky. It soared so fast, it looked like a “SHOOTING STAR”. Eric shouts with excitement, “did you see that” as Jay laughs!! The next verse Jay sings about Star Wars and then the 3rd is where Eric tries on a pair of Roller Brights and he skates so fast, he can catch the “SHOOTING STAR”, and then in the Bridge of the song… they reveal the truth of the PRANK! (This has a music video “written all over it”
|Short song description for "IN MY ARMS"
This is a beautiful power ballad of innocent, romantic hope. Since most teens begin the natural “dating” process around their age in 8th Grade (or earlier), this song presents some optimism along the journey. The backing vocals are of Manny & Joy Medina (who are also a Latino Pop Duo) who made a version of it when they were 14 & 12 back in the 1990’s! They went on to perform all over America, even in Disney! The Rosados add a new touch as they perform it looking in different directions on stage, where they fans can enjoy their “moment”!
|Short song description for "THE MERMAID DANCE"
Prof. David was ready to start a second new song won early spring eve in 2016. They were all standing on the rooftop terrace of his unique SkyRoom Studio perched high on top a 35 story condo in beautiful, Newport, Downtown Jersey City, overlooking Manhattan & the NYC Harbor, including the top of structures across the bay in Coney Island! He asked the boys (still 12 almost 13) if they had ever been there? They replied “NO”. Their mom Maria said that they actually have not had a chance to visit any of the boardwalks on the Jersey Shore yet either! So David started to think of a song idea/title “What Is It Like”... (to go to Coney Island”?) Now we could see the top of the old “Parachute” ride glowing with millions of L.E.D. lights. Eric started to look at :SkyView” app on an iPhone and discovered the constellation of “Libra” right above us and the planet Saturn!!! He started laughing and the mom looked and said the picture looks like a “Mermaid”. Little Sophia was there and mom showed David a photo of an aqua blue “mermaid costume” she just bought the child for a pre-school talent event! Mom them went on to embarrass Eric about a female co-worker she has and how Eric “light up” when he sees her! LOL David asked if they had ever heard to the famous “Coney Island Mermaid Parade”, and they said no, so none of the writers of the song had ever been there. Mom said that she bets that some day “Eric” will want to “KISS A MERMAID”, and he responded with a sarcastic, fast little “dance”... and PRESTO, the “MERMAID DANCE” Song was born. It was composed in just a few minutes.
During the summer of 2016, they travelled to the boardwalks of EVERY major beach town on the Jersey Shore from Cape May, Ocean City, Wildwood, Atlantic City, Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant, Asbury Park to Coney Island and the "Mermaid Parade" (they did not go, the film crew did due to the "rating" of the participants), but they did go twice to the boardwalk and filmed a "MOVIE" about the making of their Music Video "The Mermaid Dance".
