“Ten Little Soldier Boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine. Nine Little Soldier Boys stayed up very late; One overslept himself and then there were eight. Eight Little Soldier Boys travelling in Devon; One said he’d stay there and then there were seven. Seven Little Soldier Boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in halves and then there were six. Six Little Soldier Boys playing with a hive; A bumblebee stung one and then there were five. Five Little Soldier Boys going in for law; One got in Chancery and then there were four. Four Little Soldier Boys going out to sea; A red herring swallowed one and then there were three. Three Little Soldier Boys walking in the zoo; A big bear hugged one and then there were two. Two Little Soldier Boys sitting in the sun; One got frizzled up and then there was One. One Little Soldier Boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none.”
Have you ever wondered who also likes your favorite celebrity? 🤔 I know I have!
Sometimes knowing which other celebrities like your favorite is great! I know I have found a new fandom or great celebrity to follow from my research.
Today I want to call the Hamilton fandom into OUR fandom. Most Hamilton fans are younger members of our society so maybe they know our boys, maybe they don’t. It doesn’t matter if we don’t belong in the same fandom or who we like, we can all learn a bit with this new series.
I will try my best to include other celebrities backstreet fans and spread the word that the Backstreet Pride is still alive. So sit tight and take notes, who knows, you might find your new favorite here. 😁
If you would like to know more about celebrities that like our boys as well, or have more information and would like to share it with us, don’t be shy and contact us! Let us know what you would like to know about these celebrities too!
So, Anthony Ramos…. Now I don’t really know much about Broadway and it’s actors, but I am on my way. Today I want to talk about this amazing man.
Anthony Ramos Martínez is of Puerto Rican descent (like our boy Howie) raised in New York. According to some sources(correct me if I’m wrong Hamilfans) he was a great baseball player but lost interest and auditioned for a school musical. He actually got the lead role, and from there on the rest is history…
He is best know for his dual role as John Laurens and Phillip Hamilton in, you guessed it, Lin Manuel-Miranda’s musical “Hamilton”. He also colaborated with Miranda in “21 chump street” and “In the heights”. If you haven’t seen “Hamilton”, chances are you haven’t since tickets are harder to find than Narnia, you can buy the original cast recordings in ITunes or listen to them on Spotify. If you search thoroughly, maybe you’ll get lucky and find “21 chump street” somewhere as well. He is a super talented man, you will not be disappointed. Now, he has also participated in other musicals and even movies/tv shows. Here is a list of some of his recent work, again, Hamilfans correct me if I’m wrong!
• 2011 “Grease” as Sonny
• 2012 “Damn Yankees” as Henry
“In the heights” as Sonny
• 2014 “21 chump street” as Justin Laboy
• 2015 “Hamilton” as John Laurens/Phillip Hamilton
• 2015 “Younger” Episode: Liza sows her Oates as Julio
• 2016 “White Girl” as Kilo
“Law and order: Special victims unit” Episode: Forty one witnesses as Juan Flores
You might be wondering by now, what does he have to do with our boys? Well, he stated in a interview one of guilty pleasures 😏 What is his guilty pleasure? Boybands! Namely, Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC 🎊
Chances are that by now, you have fallen in love with this cinnamon roll 💕 Too bad, he is already taken 🤷🏻♀️ Luckily he has the most beautiful and equally talented girlfriend ever, Jasmine acepta-Jones!
Thank you, Anthony Ramos, for Keeping the Backstreet Pride Alive~
Look at this. Look at this! Sure, it’s just a short tap dance, but think about what it stands for. This man is a tap dancer, in a time where the media does not focus on tap dancers like it used to. But La La Land came out, a movie musical with tap dancing. And now this man is tap dancing, following his dream, and doing an excellent job at it. The message of La La Land is for all these dreamers to keep dreaming. But not only to dream, but to work for your dream. Skills like these should not be overlooked. So many films these days are just too intense or serious, but with little work for the performance. Where are the hours of dedication? This man sure as the sun did not learn tap dancing that day. He was probably practicing it for years, or weeks at the very least (not this particular number of course, this was improvised). But that’s just the point! He developed his skill to the point where he could improvise and still look good! Slowly, this kind of live talent is shifting back into popularity. But, even with the success of Hamilton, not everyone knows about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s impressive ability for rap improv. Skills like these take time, and the products should be highly praised. It’s a building process. Thank you, La La Land.
