About Prince Royce

Role: The Disciple Peter

Since releasing his triple-Platinum self-titled debut album in 2010, New York-born singer and songwriter Prince Royce has become a bona fide Latin music superstar by bringing a mix of Bachata music (a romantic, acoustic guitar-driven style that originated in the Dominican Republic) and contemporary R&B to the Spanish-speaking world.

He has scored 11 No. 1 hits collectively on the Latin and Tropical charts, won 20 Billboard Latin Music Awards and earned eight Latin Grammy nominations. Along the way, Royce has amassed a huge fan base with more than one billion streams online and more than 32.8 million Facebook followers.

His debut album eventually reached No. 1 on both the Billboard Tropical and Latin Albums charts and was the best-selling Latin album of 2011 in the U.S., going triple-Platinum (Latin), and spawning four singles.

Now signed to RCA Records, Royce is grateful for the opportunity to bring his music to a brand-new audience.

In November 2014, he released the electro-pop/R&B banger “Stuck on a Feeling,” featuring Snoop Dogg, followed by the May release of the dancehall-flavored “Back It Up” (featuring Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez) – two tracks from his first English-language album, “Double Vision.” Royce’s current Spanish-language single “Culpa Al Corazón” is #1 on the Billboard Latin Tropical Chart.

About his character, The Disciple Peter

Peter was a fishermen and one of Jesus’ closest friends. His parents named him “Simon,” but Jesus called him “Peter” which means “the rock.” This is because Peter was going to be the solid foundation of a movement lasting more than 2000 years.

Peter was quick to speak and act, promising that he would never walk away from Jesus, no matter what that cost him. But later, when his life was in danger, Peter said he never knew Jesus.

Many believe that, after the resurrection, Jesus met privately with Peter, forgiving him for what he did.

Peter wasn’t perfect, but he was a strong leader. He continued the movement that started, later to be executed for what he believed in.
