Biography

Alexander G. Rose later known as RoRo was born March 4th 1984 in Fountain Valley California. He is the youngest of five children. His mother Luz and Father William ended their relationship when he was four years old. He has not seen his father since. He lived in Inglewood California until the fourth grade when his mother moved her family back to her hometown in Guadalajara Mexico. It was during this time that he learned to read and write Spanish. After moving back to the United States his mother worked to support her children by working as a beautician and grocery store clerk. Due to financial hardships she was forced to move her family many times in and around Southern California. Some of the things RoRo remembers from his childhood neighborhoods are that some were scary. He remembers shootings, drive-bys, rapes and drug dealers. His home was modest and in his words “I was poor”.
According to his mother RoRo has been singing since he was talking. He realized he had talent in the singing department in 1995 when Mariah Carey’s CD “Daydream” came out. He started imitating her voice and realized that he had a good falsetto when people started commenting, “Oh My God, you sound like Mariah!”
RoRo’s education was pieced at best. He was in numerous schools because his family moved often. He was an average student who struggled in subjects like history and science. He says that he always excelled in such things as art, drama and dance. During his senior year in high school and at age 18 he dropped out of school. His teachers had told him to pursue his singing career and that’s exactly what he set out to do.
Right after leaving school RoRo started auditioning for shows. He tried out for a show called “block stars” at the Block of Orange in Orange County, California. This audition led to such gigs as an appearance in the show “Performing As” and an extra in the movie “Little Nicky”. He’s also performed in places such as Octavio Lounge in San Francisco, the Block of Orange in Orange County, Mick and Macs in Long Beach and Club Z in Santa Rosa Ca. When things were slow he worked odd jobs at video stores, movie theaters, restaurants and convinience stores. Eventually RoRo got involved in a relationship that turned into an abusive one. The relationship lasted four years and led to drug abuse. RoRo had lost himself and towards the end of the relationship started pouring his feelings into writing songs.
In 2006 His life began to change with a faitful trip to check out the Grammy’s with a friend. He went to catch a glimpse of Mariah Carey but instead he found himself invited to an after party at the Roosevelt Hotel. He was asked by a friend to sing and was heard by a producer named Phil Marcus who flew RoRo to Pacific Heights California to record tracks. During his collaboration with Marcus he crated his first EP with such tracks as, Rich Man, Blind, Get By, and Lonely.
2007 was a year of hardship and renewal but it has lead to wonderful changes. He currently has had new musical opportunities, a new relationship and he’s embraced a new Clean Lifestyle.

Richman

Written By: RoRo. Phil Marcus

I may not have much money
But I know that everything is alright
I may act a little funny
But this is my chance to shine

I walk around with a smile on my face
Cuz it feels so good just to be alive
Just kicking it day by day
Waiting for my plane to arrive
Singin-

Hey now, hey now-
I’m a rich man I’m a rich man
Hey now, hey now
I’m a rich man
I’ve finally found my way
Hey now, hey now- I’m a rich man
And I’ve got something to say
I can be myself today

You can do the impossible
You can play any part
You can handle anything they throw at you
As long as you believe deep in your heart

Be yourself and the rest is easy
Cuz you’re further along than you think
At the end of the day you can go to bed happy
Knowing that you’re full of dreams
Singin-

Hey now, hey now-
I’m a rich man I’m a rich man
Hey now, hey now
I’m a rich man
I’ve finally found my way
Hey now, hey now- I’m a rich man
And I’ve got something to say
I can be myself today

Can't take my passion away
Now I've got some more to say
It's like I've already made it

Hey now, hey now-
I’m a rich man I’m a rich man
Hey now, hey now
I’m a rich man
I’ve finally found my way
Hey now, hey now- I’m a rich man
And I’ve got something to say
I can be myself today

Lonely

Written By: RoRo, Phil Marcus

I’d like to think that you love me 
I dream at night that you care 
I hope and wait for you to come around 
But you’re never there
I’ve paid the price to be with you 
Played the fool for your smile 
Been down that old road, with nowhere to go 
But the extra mile
But your lovin’, oh your lovin’ 
Makes it harder than it’s gotta be 
I will miss you deep inside of me
But I’d rather be lonely 
I’d rather be alone 
Cuz if you don’t want every part of me 
Then I’ve got to let you go 
Yeah, I've cried just a little 
Yeah, but I’ll make it through 
But I’d rather be lonely than be with you
Ever since I met you baby
Each and every moment 
Every single move I make is for you
I followed when you’d lead me 
But now my eyes deceive me 
And I’ve heard it all before
But your lovin’, oh your lovin’ 
Makes it hard for me to believe 
That I can’t give you everything you need
But I’d rather be lonely 
I’d rather be alone 
Cuz if you don’t want every part of me 
Then I’ve got to let you go 
Yeah, I've cried just a little 
Yeah, but I’ll make it through 
But I’d rather be lonely than be with

blind

Written By: RoRo, Phil Marcus

When it hurts
It hurts so bad you don’t know
When it bleeds
Everything’s the same everyday
Everything’s the same
To much time
To much time to what know what’s on my mind
I’m spinning round and round
I am blind
Spinning round and round

I am blind to this
But ill pass each test
I can make it through the pain
I’ll find something new

Can’t smile
Can’t speak
Can’t move
Can’t eat
Can’t love
Can’t sleep
Can’t feel a thing
Cant tell you what is wrong with me but I know the end is near you’ll see
I’m alive
And my hearts still beating I wont be down for to long
Say what you want about me but I will be back and I will be strong

I am blind to this
But ill pass each test
I can make it through the pain ill find something new
I am blind to this but ill pass each test
I can make it though the pain
