BiographyJeronimo, singer-songwriter from The Netherlands.
"I live for music," says Jeronimo. And it's a good thing he does, too, because it's one of the few constants in the fast-rising star's chaotic day-to-day.
Born in Brazil, the singer-songwriter, was adopted as an infant by a Dutch family. But when he was only 10, his parents divorced, and he relocated to exotic Sri Lanka with his mum and sister. There, he learned English -- fast! -- while listening to a neverending soundtracks of Josh Groban and other artists.
Within two years, the standout student was back in Holland and being invited to choose for himself where to enroll next. "Basically," he recalls, "I picked 'High School Musical.'" In other words, he attended the sort of academy that offsets its math and science classes with acting and dance instruction.
A few short years later, Jeronimo's drama coach informed him that the famous Dutch writer Carry Slee was holding auditions for her second film, "Timboektoe." Drawn to the rush of the tryout more than the prospect of being cast, he went -- and booked his first movie role! "Hopefully," he adds, "it won't be my last, either!"
jeronimo's bio2Today, as he prepares for the release of his debut album -- a modern-pop mash-up of inspirations from his idols -- Jeronimo more than ever adheres to his "I live for music" motto. But, in spite of his laser-like focus on his career, he remains endearingly goofy, a regular kid who cops to being enamored of Selena Gomez, scared witless of bugs and ambivalent about T-shirts. "I'm not a nudist," he insists. "I just don't like clothes that much!"
In short, Jeronimo has the voice, the talent, the look and the drive to become an international sensation, a Justin Timberlake for a new generation. And, as long as at the end of each day, he can chill with his friends and listen to music on his iPod, he won't just be happy, he'll be ecstatic.
After all, as he'd be the first to tell you, when you live for music, you live a pretty sweet life.
