Rachel (13) made it as far as the quarter-finals during the Fox reality competition’s first season late last year. She proved popular with the public and caused quite a stir when she was eliminated.
Now she has signed a joint record contract with Columbia and Simon Cowell’s own record label, Syco.
Crow is thrilled by the offers. She admits she felt down after the elimination an d wondered if her showbiz dreams would come to nothing.
“So, it’s pretty amazing. I’m very thankful and I feel very blessed to have all this.”
“All this” is to share a record label with award-winning artists such as Beyonce and Adele.
Crow has also signed a deal with Nickelodeon which reportedly includes her own musical comedy pilot. She will also appear in at least five episodes of upcoming series Fred: The Show as Starr, a young girl who wants to become famous.
It looks like Rachel Crow won’t be a wannabe for much longer.
Nickelodeon’s Paula Kaplan said that Crow is “an original… [she's] funny, genuine and has raw talent and a passion for performing.”
As we previously reported, fellow X Factor contenders Brian “Astro” Bradley, Marcus Canty and Chris Rene have all joined first season winner Melanie Amaro on Epic Records.
