Bio

Stephanie Cruzado, who goes by ZADO, started her singing career back in her sophomore year of high school when she joined her high school choir and was only 15 years old in her hometown of Orlando, Florida. She would go on to pursue an associate in Music Education to become a choir instructor at a local community college, Valencia College but then later switched majors and pursued a vocal performance degree instead. Here, she received vocal training in Classical, Musical Theater and Jazz music. During 2015-2018, she participated in many local community theater shows such as musical review of Broadway shows (ensemble), In The Heights (Abuela Claudia), Legally Blonde (Brooke Windham) and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spellingbee (Mrs. Panch). She graduated with an Associates Arts degree in 2018 and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music business bachelors degree and attend Los Angeles College of Music in Pasadena, California. Stephanie has had a passion for music ever since she young and believed in herself enough to make a career out of it. She takes much of her musical inspiration from artists such as H.E.R, Sabrina Claudio, Daniel Caesar, Snoh Aalegra, Lauryn Hill, D'Angelo, Frank Ocean, Bobby Caldwell and Beyonce. She recently released an R&B album called "Time."
