Prince Royce's musical coming-of-age began in a Sprint store somewhere in the Bronx, where he worked before finding fame and fortune as a Latin pop superstar. Years later, the Dominican artist -- now an award-winning singer-songwriter with a sound all his own that fuses R&B and bachata -- would join forces with the very same company who helped fund his humble dreams of becoming a star.
In a time where the principles and practices of homegrown talent is lost in the age of the Internet, where music is now produced as fast as its consumed, Royce is paying it forward in an innovative way. Enter The Dreams Academy, an integral component of the #LiveUnlimited initiative designed to assist people in pursuing their life-long goals.
"I continue to work with Sprint, to keep helping the youth and my fans, to keep getting closer to them. We’re going to continue to do this program, and not just in music -- could be entrepreneurs, could be film," says Royce to Billboard on how envisions the growth of the academy.
