While he was already singing before the world knew him, Ricky Garcia came into the limelight in 2013 when he auditioned for the third season of the singing competition – X-Factor. The beginning was tough for him, as he dropped out of the competition along with Emery Kelly (a solo artist) and Jon Klaasen (his group member) during the Boot Camp phase.
However, Judge Simon Cowell saw something promising in the trio and decided to join them and form a band called Forever in Your Mind. The trio did not win the competition but made the most of the opportunity and to this day they continue to grow stronger, although Jon eventually had to leave the pop boy band and was replaced by Emery’s cousin Liam Attridge.
Who Is Ricky Garcia?
He is a young American with versatile talent, a singer, an actor, and has also tried his hand at modeling. He was born on January 22, 1999, the youngest of three brothers. His birthplace is the place where his father was employed at the time. Ricky’s father, who served in the Navy, was stationed at the US Navy base in Puerto Rico. From there his family moved to Texas, where the stage was set for Ricky to explore his horizons in the entertainment field. He then made it to the X-Factor competition and got the chance to show his talent and also became part of a boy band in 2013. The band, known as Forever in Your Mind, features songs like She Lights the World, Sweet Little Something, Hurricane, Enough About Me, and Smooth. They have also performed during their 2015 DigiTour with industry greats such as Demi Lovato, Jesse McCartney, and Fifth Harmony. The trio also appeared on television, where they performed during their appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” show.
There is also a new Disney comedy show in which the three members of the pop boy band (Ricky Garcia, Emery Kelly, and Liam Attridge) appear as brothers who later turned into vampires.
Apart from that, Ricky appeared in other movies and TV shows before he made waves as a singer. He appeared in the sitcom “Best Friends Whenever” and appeared on TV shows like “Girl Meets World” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. He also played a role in the movie Mantervention in 2014.
In addition to music, acting, and modeling, Ricky Garcia also has a passion for sports, baseball, surfing, and snowboarding being the focus of his sporting interests.
There has been much speculation about the singer’s love life, with particular attention paid to his sexual orientation. While it is expected that his star status will be considered, there are some records to be corrected here, and the details are listed below.
Who Is Ricky Dating As Girlfriend, Or Is He Gay?
For the record, Ricky Garcia is not gay, at least that much can be deduced from his past relationships. Most famous was his relationship with dance moms star Chloe Lukasiak, but before she came into his life, there was Destiny Rogers, with whom he went on ASKfm to confirm their love affair. However, their relationship ended when his interest shifted to Chloe.
Ricky and Chloe, later nicknamed Clicky by fans, met and exchanged contacts at the Radio Disney Music Awards in 2015, but according to her, their relationship only became official after their second meeting at the Digifest. After that, they started attending award ceremonies and premieres as a couple. They also made their relationship official on social media, confirming the speculation and flooding their reports with pictures of them together to the delight of their many fans.
The two also supported each other by performing in their respective music and YouTube videos; Chloe can be seen in Ricky’s music video “Wrapped Up for Christmas”, while the singer also appeared in one of Chloe’s YouTube videos. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for the adorable couple to describe their relationship as overloaded, citing their busy schedules. The fans didn’t like that and dragged Ricky through the streets of social media for it, especially after he was seen with model Beatrice Vendramin.
