The dynamic dual Eric & John Rosado have been honored to be the opening act for the 61st Annual 152nd Street Cultural in the Bronx, this Saturday May 26, at 1 PM! They will perform the Puerto Rican National Anthem, the brand new anthem “PROUD TO BE!” (Puerto Rican & American), as well as the Ricky Martin classic “Livin’ La Vida Loca” , and maybe even the dynamic “Spanglish” ballad “In My Arms/En Mis Brazos”!
On May 2, 2018 Prof Musial decided to create an all original song "PROUD TO BE!" with the Rosados which will be premiered in this festival. (It was composwed for the Nationla Parade on June 10th in Manhattan.)The Rosados were born in Jersey City, but their parents and grandparents were born in Puerto Rico. They are a very humble & gifted family who is truly proud of their heritage. When Musial asked the "guys" what song to they like, Mom "jumped in " and said "Rain Over Me" by Marc Antholy & Pit Bull. The guys agreed and Sophia "jumped for joy", (which does not count because she does ths ALL THE TIME!) So in a MsuicTech Teens class, Prod David taught the guys who to create a song with "references". They tapped the beat to discover that it was a festive 130 beats per minute. The style is a bit of EDM (Electronic Dance Music)/Techno meets Salsa. Well Prof. David created knew the great legend Dr. Robert "Bob" Moog and created college courses in Electronic Music, Synthestration and Techno Music, so this was a natural for him to teach the Rosados. Musial has also produced many Latino songs in the past. So teh Guys watched him start to craft this fun piece and joiend in the process. Over a few weeks, we started "tracking" the vocals, and we tweaked and re-tweaked the lyrics. Mom Maria Rosad was especially helpful; with the Spanis translations, finding the "cities' for verse 3 and together, th 5 of us compoesd this anthem-like, call-and-responce, fun cultural song at famous SkyRoom Studio in downtown Jersey City.
Award-winning Jersey City resident, Professor David Musial is the Executive Producer and is teaching the Rosados how to compose and record songs and how to become performers. They are in his MusicTech Teens scholarship program, and are graduates his MusicTech Kids program. The Rosados have been approved to be performers for 22,000 people at kids acts in Madison Square Garden trough Musial’s very unique program. (Prof. Musial is the Founder of the Award-Winning Music & Technology Program at Stevens Institute of Technology, and also won “Instructor-of-The-Year” in the Music Technology program at New York University.)
Brady® Cudmore a Jersey City resident and a very popular and highly acclaimed Off-Broadway star, is training the Rosados and any teen Puerto Rican dancers, to perorm at this event and in the National Parade! Brady has also performed in Carnegie Hall, in Disney, on an Aircraft Carrier in the NYC harbor in “Fleet Week” with a national radio broadcast and even in the very prestigious “Hall of Heroes” in the Pentagon!
The Rosado twins were discovered by Music & Video industry veteran Prof. David Musial, when he was invited to conduct a Children’s Choir for a Chistamas Concert at Saint Mary’s church in downtown Jersey City in 2016. They were joined by their vivacious little sister “Sophia” who is now just 6 years old! The Rosados have a 4 song EP and a Single on download stores like iTunes, CD Baby and more plus on Spotify. Their song “It’s Oblivious” is an intense statement piece which is being sold to help raise funds to assist their grandmother who’s home was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. All of their proceeds form their new single “PROUD TO BE!” which “drops” on June 10, 2018 when the perform in the “Largest Cultural Celebration in America” the National Puerto Rican Day Parade! In addition, they filmed a move titled “The MERMAID MYSTERIES” featuring their silly anthem "The Mermaid Dance", all over the boardwalks of the Jersey Shore and Coney Island last summer, which is in editing now and is expecting a July 4, 2018 release! There are many more details, photos & videos in the “news and about section on there site Rosado.Rocks, NextGenStars.com, MusicTechKids.com and MusicTechTeens.com.
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
