At first glance, you may not have connected the name Felipe’ Rose to the iconic group “The Village People.” But Felipe’ Rose, the Native American (Lakota Sioux) and (Puerto Rican) of the world-famous group, who has been entertaining millions of fans over the past thirty-plus years and has sold well over 100 MILLION albums in his successful career, is still proving he has what it takes to please his millions of loyal followers.
And what a career he has seen. In the 1970’s he started as the first member of the Village People that quickly celebrated their first hit “San Francisco,” in the UK. And do we even need to mention the phenomenal smash hits “Macho Man” and “Y.M.C.A.” that still today get massive amounts of airplay all over the world?! (We saw you raising your arms to the “Y.M.C.A.” song at that last party you went to!)
In 2000, Rose began his solo career and was nominated and won several Native American Music Awards for his single “Trails of Tears,” and opened for the 5th Annual Native American Music Awards. That evening, Rose picked up his first NAMMY for Best Historical Recording. The then went on to follow it up with Red Hawk Woman, which brought Rose, “Song Writer of the Year Award with his long-time producer – Forrest “Frosty” Lawson.
After their win for “We’re Still Here” for Song/Single of the Year and then receiving his induction to THE NATIVE AMERICAN HALL of FAME, prior to having just received The Star On The Hollywood Walk of Fame!
Rose decided that it was time to have “We’re Still Here” remixed for DJ’s for club consumption. “ I feel that I owe my career first to the deejays around the world for breaking Village People’s music in many of the legendary Disco Clubs in the world.
I want to bring back the tribal clubs sounds to a new level! and “YES HE DOES SING “LIVE”! Rose has also appeared in several movies in his longstanding career as an dancer/singer/actor/songwriter and many television shows to mention.
Today, Felipe Rose’ is still going at breakneck speed and creating music that is garnering attention across the Native Music Industry - internet radio shows and now to dance clubs around the world. With a blend of Native American overtones of drum, flute and song and an energetic dance beat that his signature “WAR” call, under his falsetto, which is called a “Cipher”.
“We’re Still Here” literally forces you to “get up let your inner spirit soar and surrender yourself to the GODS! Rose is demonstrating that true talent that never stops delivering the goods.
