The day Ruth was born she screamed so loudly during the birth that the doctors said she would be a singer. They were right. At the early age of two Ruth was singing along to the songs from Annie and at the age of six, after listening to Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballé, she started singing opera.

At twelve years old Ruth and her family left Murcia (south east Spain) and moved to the United States. There, Ruth took every music, theatre, dance and choir lesson going on. She was put into competitions and played the lead roles in The Phantom of the Opera and My Fair Lady, developing her singing and stage skills.

But it was when Ruth was sixteen years old when, after moving back to Spain, she took singing lessons and decided to pursue her dream of becoming a singer. For three years, she toured around Spain with her rock band and discovered that she wanted to make a living out of music, but things were not easy for her. 

In 2008 she decided to try out auditioning for The X Factor. “I had to come to England to try and achieve my dreams”. When she arrived to the auditions in Manchester she almost went back home, “there were 22.000 people there and I was thinking ‘How the hell am I going to do this?’” But Ruth is a fighter, and she made it all the way through until coming fifth in the competition giving some outstanding and breathtaking performances such as Bon Jovi’s Always, Bob Dylan’s Knocking on Heaven’s Door and Prince’s Purple Rain were an instant Internet sensation (over 100 million YouTube hits) . She also had the chance of singing with worldwide artists such as Mariah Carey, Take That or Beyoncé and was publicly supported by the likes of international stars Judi Dench, Johnny Depp or the Brtish Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

After a successful European tour (over 200 concerts) Ruth has published various singles such as Burn (2011) and The Night (2013). Dancing in the Rain has already been #1 on iTunes and charted at #7 in the Official Spanish Chart.

The authors

Dancing In The Rain is a song co-written by Ruth Lorenzo with Jim Irvin - who has worked with international artists like Lana del Rey and David Guetta - and Julian Emery - leading producer of British band McFly. 

Produced between Madrid and London, Ruth wrote this song during one of her darkest moments in London: "I learned to accept adversity and just take it as a challenge to continue to fight in what you believe". That is the message of the theme. The song has an international-pop style, with parts of the lyrics in Spanish and English, and it recalls Titanium by David Guetta "for its message of light and hope," says Lorenzo and Katy Perry's Unconditionally for its "pop style and catchy chorus”.

Lyrics of Dancing in the rain

Luz, yo quiero ver luz Poder pintar de color un nuevo amanecer Vivir, amar, Sentir y saber que Hoy, puede que no salga el sol Aunque llueva Tú y yo sabremos bailar Nadie nos puede parar We're dancing in the rain Dancing in the rain Life, gets you every time Open up , You never know what you will find You never know what waits inside So, live Like you'll never stop Take this chance And give it everything you’ve got Come on and let the rhythm drop We're dancing in the rain Dancing in the rain Keep on like it's never ending Keep on till the light of day Keep on dancing in the rain The rain, the rain Deja caer Deja la lluvia caer The rain, the rain, the rain Deja caer Deja la lluvia caer The rain, the rain, the rain The Rain, the rain Dancing Dancing Dancing Dancing Deja caer Deja la lluvia caer Aunque llueva y nos mojemos No pararemos de bailar Keep on dancing in the rain The rain, the rain
