Editors note: I got the opportunity to interview one of the most underrated and hardest working singers in the music business Strukk World Entertainment artist Manny Blue. He is always writing music, he is pursuing his education, while acting and also doing a reality show. He is one of the stars of the reality show Angel Alamo’s The Making of an empire. He is a bilingual artist and for his spanish speaking fans I will be posting a spanish interview with Manny Blue. For more information on Manny Blue check out the following links:
ANGEL ALAMO: How long have you been singing?
Manny Blue: I’ve been singing all my life just it wasn’t always in front of people I was very shy at first.
ANGEL ALAMO: Growing up what where your influences?
Manny Blue: Musically I used to listen to a lot of oldies. But my favorite band as a kid was the Beach Boys. But it wasn’t until the Backstreet Boys and N’Sync that I decided to start a boy band.
ANGEL ALAMO: If you could tour with anyone anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
Manny Blue: Wow tough question because there are so many artist I’d love to tour with. But I will go with Britney Spears and Would love to tour Japan. Britney is a show rocker and Japan loves and supports Music. I think it would be a great combination
ANGEL ALAMO: What’s your favorite song to perform live and why?
Manny Blue: Again another tough question lol but I would go with Dreamer. Dreamer has such a positive message being sent out. I also like the fact that is a pop/rock song which is one of my favorite genre.
ANGEL ALAMO: How is your new album coming along?
Manny Blue: Right now I’ve been focusing on writing a bunch of new songs I’m not sure if we will be releasing a full album or just another EP or several singles.
ANGEL ALAMO: What can Manny Blue fans expect on your next album?
Manny Blue: Due to all the writing that is taking place if it was up to me they can expect a sound track lol I say that because of all the different songs, concepts and sounds that I’d like to incorporate but I guess we will have to wait and see.
ANGEL ALAMO: Will you be playing any shows?
Manny Blue: Definitely. I plan to do many shows and hope to tour as well.
ANGEL ALAMO: What are your plans for 2014?
Manny Blue: I have so many goals for 2014 not just musically but in my personal life such as starting my courses towards my Bachelors Degree.
ANGEL ALAMO: Are you doing any movies?
Manny Blue: I have been looking into audition for roles. I definitely would like to get a few acting classes and get new head shots done. I will also be looking into getting the funding and a team to bring a movie I have In mind to life. It will be a movie that I can see play on the Disney Channel or MTV.
ANGEL ALAMO: Tell us something about Manny Blue that no one knows?
Manny Blue: I find it awkward or a bit embarrassing when I’m randomly recognized and asked to take a photo or sign something. I guess because I’m not a Celebrity with my face on magazines or on billboards. Is that weird? Lol
I remember a few years back after the MTV Music Awards my cousin and I ran into the singer Mya so as I was taking the photo of her with my cousin and there was a group of girls wanting to take a photo with her and they recognized me from the boy band I was in and they ran to me asking get to take a photo with me that even the paparazzi were asking who was I. I just didn’t know what to do with myself lol
