The youngest son of celebrity couple David and Victoria Beckham, Cruz Beckham has made his debut into the music industry by releasing his first single, “If Everyday Was Christmas”.
The 11-year-old was also revealed to have already signed with Justin Bieber’s talent manager Scooter Braun as his new Instagram and Twitter accounts are managed by Scooter Braun Productions.

Since it’s a Christmas single, it was made for a good cause as the proceeds will go to the Make Some Noise charity, which supports disadvantaged children and young people across the U.K.
Former Spice Girls member Victoria revealed that she realised her son’s talent after hearing him sing in the back of the car.
“He’s always the one that plays football, and he was just singing in the back of the car one day. And he was singing, and I was like, ‘Wow, you can really sing.’ And then he picked up his cups and off he went,” she said as quoted by Metro UK.

However, not everyone is pleased and proud with Cruz’s path into the music industry, especially British TV personality Piers Morgan who slammed both David and Victoria for allowing this to happen.
“Cruz is only 11-years-old and has absolutely zero proper musical training or experience. He’s only been able to release such a high profile pop record – all in the name of ‘charity’, naturally – because his parents are David and Victoria Beckham,” Morgan wrote on Mail Online.
“It goes to the harsh reality of the Beckhams’ decision to deliberately propel their little boy into ‘superstardom’ when he’s 11-years-old and hasn’t had to work a single minute of his life to earn that right,” he added.
Comparing Cruz’s situation to Justin Bieber’s who also found fame around the same age, Morgan pinpointed that the fame would messes Cruz’s life and he will be “missing out on almost all the normal things a teenager might do.”
“This morning, Cruz’s singing debut was met with equal doses of praise and abuse on social media. The volume of both will only increase over the next few weeks and it can be a deeply unsettling experience for adults let alone kids.”
