Venezuelan singer Benavides in search of his princess, could it be you?
Venezuelan singer songwriter Benavides is currently promoting his latest single “Tu Principe Azul” (“Your Prince Charming”) but more importantly he’s on a quest to find his princess.
“I think my princess might be out there,” he joked in an interview with Press Pass Latino in Miami Beach. “Out there, some where, I think I might be the perfect guy for some girl, for one girl.”
Benavides, who claims to believe that there’s a perfect guy for each girl, says his heart is currently open and that he wouldn’t mind finding someone whom he could call his “princesa”.
The 29-year-old artist from Caracas got his start on social media, uploading his songs to YouTube and sharing them on Facebook and Twitter.
Now, three of his songs, “Damelo Todo”, “Mi Ex”, and “Tu Rompecabezas” have topped radio charts in his homeland. His latest single “Tu Principe Azul” is the 24th most popular song in the Tropical music genre, being played over and over again by radio stations all across the U.S.
“This is a dream of mine, something I worked at for such a long time but didn’t really realize that it would happen,” said Benavides. “I feel blessed.”
Benavides attributes much of his success to the undying support of his fans.
He’s currently in the works of putting together the lyric video for “Mi Principe Azul” in which he enlisted his fans to participate by having them write down their favorite lyric from the song on a small poster or sheet of paper, take a photo of themselves with it and send it his way.
“The response has been wonderful,” he said.
“We’ve gotten so many photos and messages of fans that want to be in the video, my fans are everything to me and many times they are the first ones I run to, they’re my company.”
Benavides is set to leave South Florida and return to South America to continue a promotional tour with Wendy’s and Pepsi but concludes that no matter what country he’s in, for his fans he’s only a tweet away.
So, if you think Benavides might be your “Principe Azul” don’t be shy to let him know how feel, just remember you only have 140 characters or less!
