Andre Cruz developed a taste for music during his early childhood and from the age of 7 years old, the guitar and the piano got his attention. A self-taught musician, Andre began to participate in scholar musical contests where he won many first prizes. Andre’s professional career started after he first competed for the Talent Show Idols and won 3rd place. From there, he was given the opportunity to perform throughout Europe on the Idolomania Tour.
When Andre was not on tour, he performed on the TV show “Ready to Wear” on channel SIC. Andre also participated in a project for Vodafone (Verizon) where he played the role of “Blue” while recording the voices of the Cartoon Band “T-Jays”. The following year, Andre received one of the most important invitations of his life – to record several videoclips for Disney Channel, featuring The Jonas Brothers and other Disney Channel stars.
By the age of 18 Andre began his studies in Journalism, finishing his degree 3 years later at the Catholic University of Portugal.
