Look out everyone. Simon Cowell and his X Factor Team just found a 13-year-old female singer that is absolutely destined for stardom.
On Thursday evening, an unassuming and very sweet Carly Rose Sonenclare glided on stage and gave a performance of Nina Simone’s/Michael Buble’s “Feelin’ Good that sent shivers up my spine.
To hear this rich deep soulful voice come out of this shy, adorable girl defied logic. I though I was dreaming.
This performance was one of those “out of body experience” moments. Just when you think you have heard and seen it all, this young girl proved that there is room for one more exceptional talent in the music industry.
However, according to Newsday.Com, the young lady has considerable performing experience which would explain the high level of confidence in her performing ability. Nevertheless, she is an undiscovered talent and deserves to propel her performing experience to a loftier level. And The X Factor is definitely doing that!
Somewhere, David Foster is chomping at the bit. This is his kind of talent – one of quality, refinement, youthful yet sophisticated. He could weave some wonderful magic with this talented young lady’s unique vocal talent.
But now she belongs to Simon Cowell and you can bet she will be the favorite to win this season. Or one of the favorites. All I know is that right here and now, she is my favorite.
If I can find a video of Carly’s Thursday audition, I will post it at the end of this article ASAP. What did you think? Are you loving this young lady? How about The X Factor? Are you loving the addition of Britney and Demi?
