Carly Rose Sonenclar, the youngest contestant on The X Factor, saw her $5 million dream shattered tonight when she placed second to Tate Stevens.
Carly Rose started singing when she was only 2-years-old and started singing professionally at the age of seven.
Recently, the young singer has been pursuing her solo music career, performing at Birdland Jazz Club in New York and writing her own songs. She says, “I want to bring the soul back to pop. My record would be a mix of those two genres because I think that is something that is not really out there right now. I could fill that gap and appeal to a wide range of ages. I think I have the X factor because I have a uniquely mature sound and style for my age.”
Carly may only be 13 and may not have won The X Factor, but something tells me this is just the beginning for the young singer.
What do you think about Carly Rose placing 2nd on The X Factor? Are you surprised?
