This week’s DMV Spotlight highlights R&B crooner Santino Rose.
Singer and native Washingtonian, Santino Rose was discovered on YouTube by GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter and producer Harold Lilly, Jr. After Lilly heard news of the internet sensation, he watched one of Rose’s videos and immediately flew him to Los Angeles. Rose has been performing since age three, and attributes his musical influence to his father. The youthful singer’s first live performance was at a local barbershop with his father.
“I want to use music as a tool to tell my story. Years from now I want to be [known as] one of the greats,” Santino says in a recent interview.
