It was quite a shock to many people (me and Nicole Scherzinger included) to see fan favorite Rachel Crow eliminated from the X Factor USA. However, the future looks bright for her and she is considering several offers of work. But what is most important to her is being able to support her sick Dad and take care of him.
As we previously reported, Rachel (13) was born a crack baby and was fostered and later adopted as a baby by Barbara and Kelly Crow. She never made a secret of that during her time on the X Factor as she said she wanted to be an inspiration to others who had had a similarly tough start in life.
However, one thing that she did keep to herself is that her father has multiple sclerosis. That means that sometimes he is unable to drive his truck and that means there will be times that he is unable to work, according to a close family member who did not wish to be named.
Rachel Crow wants to earn money and take the pressure off Kelly so he does not feel he has to work. She has seen how hard her parents work and is apparently eager to return the favor now and take care of them, off the back of her X Factor popularity.
That seems to be quite a realistic prospect as both Nickelodeon and Disney have approached her while she has been on the X Factor. It could be Rachel Crow’s chance to look after her family and also inspire other young people.
