Cruz Beckham has been blowing us away with videos of mad singing skills, and now HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that his famous parents David and Victoria are quietly hoping he’ll become the next Justin Bieber!
There’s no denying it, Cruz Beckham, 11, has inherited his former pop star mom Victoria‘s musical talents and now she and husband David, 40 think they have a future teen idol in the making! The proud papa just dropped the cutest Instagram video of his son’s singing talents, and HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY they did this to test out the public’s response.
“David and Victoria are grooming their very own Justin Bieber,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They have high hopes for Cruz making a foray into the pop world, and wanted to showcase his talents with that adorable video online for the world to see.” On Apr. 18, David dropped the most adorable Instagram video of Cruz crooning Pitch Perfect‘s “Cups (When I’m Gone)” – along with playing cups and showing off his incredible singing and rhythmic skills.
“Although they’ve got their own contacts in the music business, they wanted to use Instagram as a shop window to see the response it would get.” our insider adds. “The idea behind that would be to see if any prospective producers would take Cruz on, just like how Justin Bieber became a star.”
Well, the response has been HUGE, with the video garnering almost 775,000 likes! David captioned it, “Look at my little man go…Ridiculously cute and the enjoyment in his face whilst doing it just makes us smile” Aww, it made us smile too, and marvel about his mad cups skills and sweet singing voice!

“But that said, like they did with Brooklyn and soccer, they won’t pressure Cruz into going into music if he doesn’t want to,” our source shares. Cruz’ oldest brother Brooklyn, 17, initially followed in his famous Dad’s sporty footsteps, but by the time he was 15 he took an interest in modeling instead!
This isn’t the first time Cruz has showed off his singing skills and how he can completely own a tune. On Apr. 14 he belted out Twista and Faith Evans song “Hopeful.” in an Instagram video and this kid knows how to play things up for the camera. He even has Justin’s hand over his heart move down pat! If Cruz wants to become the next Biebs, we have a feeling he’s got a very bright future ahead of him!
