Guys Who Rock: Ricardo Munoz

Boys, boys, boys. Here at CollegeCandy, we love them. A lot. And being that we have a lot of time on our hands to search for them on the web, we thought we’d use it to our advantage and yours and bring you a little eye candy that not only makes us drool but also tug at our heartstrings. So here’s your chance to meet some of the most talented guys in the world…who rock. Like, for real. (They’re musicians, people.)
Name: Ricardo Munoz Repko
Age: 25
Location: Holland
Type of Music: Pop
Why He Rocks: Ricardo is sweeping girls off their feet all over the world. One of his videos on YouTube has over three million views and the count is going up on a daily basis. (Though that might be solely because of me…) Oh, and he has an accent. Need I say more?
What age did you start singing?
I was around 17-18 when I started singing.
Have you always dreamed of turning your talent into a career, or was it something that just happened?
I’ve been playing the piano since I was around ten years old. I started singing for fun and without any big dreams. It wasn’t until I put my music online and received so much great feedback that it first came to me that maybe I should try to become a singer. Now I can’t imagine a life without music.
Where’s your favorite place to write lyrics and sing?
In the car and in my home studio all alone. But I also love working with other songwriters and musicians. That way I find new ways of doing things.
Who or what has inspired you to continue with your passion for music?
I think all the great artists and songs in the world have inspired me. I never was quite sure about what to do with my life. When I started to make my own songs and learned how to sing it all just made sense.  I never feel as happy and in my element as when I’m writing, recording, or performing, so my passion for the music keeps me going. Alright, being signed to Universal Music helps, too!
What’s your favorite experience with your fans?
I love getting those special messages from fans like ‘every night I put my baby to sleep with your songs, she loves it’. This could be insulting (are my songs that boring?)…but yeah, I think it’s really sweet!  I love hearing that my music/voice helps them through a rough time or puts a smile on their faces.
Now some questions with the ladies of CollegeCandy in mind…
What catches your eye most when first meeting a girl?
Her eyes and her smile! I think her voice and sense of humor are important, too.
What’s your ideal first date?
On my ideal first date she asks for a second date! Okay, well, the first date should feel like ‘wow’… then it really doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing together.
What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done for a girl?
I took the bus for about 30 hours to surprise her for her birthday. She didn’t know about it but was happy to see me. Is that romantic? I don’t know… 
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Liars… and when someone doesn’t believe me or judges too soon even if my hands are clean!  Where’s the justice in that?!
What’s one thing you can’t go a day without doing?
Music– I’m really a workaholic when it comes to music. It’s something I can’t switch off… Like right now, I’m working on my single ‘Just One Day’ and because it will be released soon there is just so much going on in my head about song production, live band, video clip, promotion, and so on. Love it!
What’s your favorite food?
Chinese food and shrimp.
