Everything about her is outstanding, a real star in the making. Kriten Cruise has around 2.2 million followers on TikTok. She sings while she prepares drinks, which is cool enough in itself, but it’s this incredible voice that spices up her cocktails. The 19 year old sensation is from Crawley, Texas and she just wants to sing. She was heading to Home Depot hoping to get a job, but then she decided to follow her passion.
“I want to sing,” Cruz said. “I don’t want to not believe in myself and not try. I want to inspire people to feel that you don’t have to be anything other than yourself. I don’t need to be the industry standard.” Her favorite song was “I See Red” by Everyone Loves an Outlaw, perfect for her style. None of the four judges expected such a tone and strength from a teenager.
You know Cruz is pretty when her TikTok videos get 47.5 million views. She covers hits such as Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”, which have over 23 million views. Cruise also has a cover of George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” with over 18 million views. This time, Cruz stuns and silences the AGT audience, eventually making them roar in approval as she begins to sing. She sounds so good!
